Question about Canon ZR45MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

My canon zr45mc will sometimes not rewind mini dv tapes and an "eject cassette" message will appear over and over - sometimes my tapes have been eaten. I thought it needed a cleaning so I bought one of those mini dv camcorder cleaners - no dice. Please help!

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.

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.

Canon zr45mc chews tapes and cleaner cassette.


This happens because the "Pinch Rollers" are faulty. They will most likely have to be replaced. The ONLY thing that can be done, due to the delicate and complex nature of any DVR, they MUST be returned to a Canon, authorised, service center. Then ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repair.

MX2, it displays the following: "remove the cassette" or eject. I thought it was a condensation problem but all attempts failed, please help me.


On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.

Tape will not eject / Battery full


while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.
