Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, postback the brand and model number.

Offhand, if the camera uses cassette tapes, then the message would be referring to the rewind feature as it is used during the eject mode so as not to have any slack that may be left inside the cassette holder. In most instances, this would be a faulty belt, a worn our gear or faulty rewind reel motor (depending on the model).

Good luck and thank you for asking.

When I inserted a new dv cassette into the camcorder to record - it chewed the tape then the "eject" message came up, I inserted a new tape and the eject message showed up again. I have also noted a whine...



This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

How does the vcr release the tape to be ejected?


When in play the tape is pulled out of the cassette & wrapped around a path that takes it across the heads using guide arms.When you press STOP/EJECT. the guide arms move back leaving the tape slack, at the same time a clutch device engages the take up spool & rotates to turn the spool in the cassette & wind the slack tape back into the cassette. When the arms are fully retracted a selector switch has moved into position to activate a motor which turns the mechanism to bring the cassette housing back up to the start position & relaeses the tape. If there is still tape catching the mechanism when you try to eject or some of the tape not fully back inside the cassette, this is most likely because the take up spool is not turning quickly enough to take up the slack tape.

VCR ejecting my cassettes


Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.

Sony Cam DCR-PC100, "eats" tapes and when ejecting, pulls tape


The take up spool is not working upon ejecting. I would take it to a Sony Service Centre for service.

Remove The Casette Message


THESE CAMERAS ARE PEICES OF ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I suggest that no body buys from cannon again!!
I am suppose to record my sister-in laws wedding and BOTH of my ELURA 100's are displaying the EJACT TAPE message!

"TEMP. FIX"
This takes pateince however for me it works....When you get the EJECT TAPE mesage....eject the battery with the power on (thus the power will go off by means of the battery not being in camera) then slap the battery back in....and KEEP doing this untill eventually the camera will NOT DISPLAY the message and actual work.

It may take up to 20 trys ....slap it in..slap it out...slap it in slap it out...BUt for me it works.

If it appears to work but as you hit the RECORD button it beeps and displays the EJECT tape message again...Go back and eject the battery again and repeat the STEPS...but dont worry , that means your getting closer to it working.. LOL

P.s- I hate CANON

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.

Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.


I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
