Possibly there is moisture in your camera. Please inform us of the exact model of your camera and how many beeps it may give in a row so we can narrow down your problem.

I would first leave the camera to sit overnight and see if it works in the morning. Remove the battery during this time too.

Let me know how this works out

thanks

    Other users like you have reported the same problem, and found that it is a hardware fault requiring service from an authorized technician. Most have been sent back to Canon for repair.

Everytime a place a cassette in the recorder...it makes a high pitched wine sound and ejects the tape...and says "remove the cassette" with 5 "beeps" following. I've read these complaints on other...



Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

The tape will not eject, battery is charged, help! Thank you!


Unplug battery and reattach it again, then try to eject the tape.
If problem still exist and camera shows error code "C:..:.." and beeps then it is problem of tape mechanism.

Canona Elura 60 problem...


What a hunk of junk. Not a month after the warranty period expired, my Elura 60 would zoom out without warning and refused to stay zoomed in. I paid Canon to fix that problem.

Now, I'm on vacation (in the Carribean for more than 24 hours) and the unit wouldn't accept a tape. Every time I tried to load a tape, it would beep five times and then kick the tape out. So I tried taking all of the batteries and media out. That didn't work.

Next, I tried the drop method. I figured the unit is broken and I'm not going to pay again to get it fixed, so dropping it couldn't break it anymore than it already is. I let the unit fall onto the throw rug in the bathroom. In then tried to install a tape. Waddyaknow! It worked.

I can only reiterate again two things: dropping the camera from about 6" onto a carpeted surface over a tile floor seemed to clear up my "remove the cassette" problem, and the Elura 60 is a temperamental hunk of junk (although the recordings and playback are pretty good, when you can actually get a tape into the unit).

High pitched noise, then ejects tape


Hi friends. (Excuse my poor English). Well, i bought a SCD364 Samsung CamCoder that is physically and mechanically exactly as scd363. My scd364 also have the same problem. Because the warranty has expired, i discovered a solution. The problem ocurs due to a missing calibrati?n at tape motion mechanism then when the cam goes heat, the motor grazes with another part of the mechanism that this located very near (wax)causing a metallic noise, eating the battery and, finally the blinking "D" eject signal. I amazing when discovered that the solution is to open the tape compartment and place the opened camera infront of the air conditioning machine by 2 minutes in order to cool it. Once cold, the camera is ready to play or record again without noise and blinking "D".

Will not accept any tape
