The only "easy fix" suggestion that I have is to unplug the camcorder from any type of power source (A/C adaptor or battery), leave it powered down for about 10 minutes, and try again. There may also be a reset button on the side case where the LCD lays. If neither of those things work, you will have to have the camcorder repaired. Not sure where you are located, but we are a repair center in Austin, TX. We frequently have customers ship their units in to us for repair.

Hope this helps you

Why is the unit Magnavox vet/DVD recorder turning off when I insert the tape, and when power back on it ejects the tape.


There is something wrong with the mechanism, either the main drive mechanism, or the cassette holder part. Possible physical damage to the plastic parts. When the tape is inserted a device called a mode switch tells the electronics which position both mechanisms are in. If they go out of sequence, due to damage, or a faulty mode switch, the electronics shut the system down to prevent tape damage. When you power it up, the system thinks it is eject mode and chucks out the tape.

VCR EJECT FAILURE


When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) and try loading and unloading a tape. Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. When it "catches" as you say, try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting. Gravity and the weight of the tape is why you may not have this problem during the load sequence.

How can I fix my 2002 Honda Civic cassette player from ejecting cassettes. I tried a cassette deck cleaner and that gets ejected the same.


The auto-eject feature is normally triggered by the tape reaching its end. This causes the tape to tighten and then activates a trip lever that starts the eject cycle. Most auto tape decks that are not auto-reverse eventually have this problem. It is not usually the deck's fault, but it is with the tapes themselves. After many plays the tapes get wound too tight on the reels and drag, causing the auto-ejection. This is especially true with the thinner, larger tapes found in the C-90 and C-120 varieties. Try taking the tapes to a regular tape player and then fast-forward them from one end to the other and them a full rewind as well to loosen the tape on the spindles and re-distribute the tension. Hopefully this will work.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV67E, ejects all the time with or without tape inserted. How can I fix this easily?


It can be thaat the ejecct is accidently being activated from the main panel switch or there is a fault in the main panel/ eject switch or a malfunctioning of the controller processor section.

You can check and see if there is any mopisture build up on the panel, if so use a hair dryer to warm carefully. If not remove the eject panel and check the eject switch, check if the switch is too loose to activate. If so replace the eject switch.
Other wise the fault seems to go further into the processor section which migght require you to open and check the input to the processor for the eject activation or if the eject load motor is activated in an error.

Camcorder's eject sequence will not activate so i can't switch tapes and this one is almost full!. hardware problem? where's a good place to send it in for repairs if it's not an easy fix? i'd like to save...


This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry and can usually vbe repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed


Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

Tape keeps getting ejected


This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

Hopefully, you won't find any spilled tape in the unit.
Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear or gear with missing teeth.
Let me know what you find out and we'll go from there.

BUSH BTV19SIL NOT LOADING TAPES


There is a small CAM under the foward\reverse takeup wheel. Like a combination lock, must be set in proper sequence to send a signal to eject or load tape. Panasonic VCR has them also.
Hope that this helps, Buddy
P.S. The motor\rubber assembly MUST be set in such a way that the "end of Rubber band line" reaches a certin point WITHOUT turning any more then neccessary because it wll through the switch off aligement.
The LED that the VHS tape covers when it comes down on top of and covers it will give the same problem when it is " caca ".
