How to eject the cassette manually?

My camera is not operational. I don't know if the problem is the camera, battery or something else. Right now, most important for me is getting the casette out of it. How can I do it manually?

Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: cassette stuck

I have the same problem eject cassette stuck on my brothers camera he gave it to me to bring home to try and fix for him how-ever not before his son tried to force it and damaged some of the casing that holds the cassette. I straighten it all out and then found that a very small spring at the back of the camera had come off which was stopping it from ejecting. Once I lifted this spring and hooked it back on that it now ejects no worries at all..

SOURCE: cassette loading - keeps on ejecting cassette

The "remove cassette" problem on Canon DV cameras is a general fault error that can be induced by many varied problems from faulty dew sensors to jammed mechanisms. These mechanisms are small and delicate and it does not take much to stop them working. If the head drum is starting the next thing that should happen is the capstan spins which in turn drives the take-up spools when the cassette loads. Tape tension problems (other than a broken tape) would not be detected until after the capstan is running. With the battery removed and the cassette door open, CAREFULLY attempt to rotate the capstan spindle. I use a small rubber insulating sleeve stretched over a small screwdriver. If this does not solve the problem then other possibilities are that the printed ribbon cable from the cassette mechanism to the camera needs re-seating or perhaps the capstan drive motor is faulty. However, try and look for the obvious first. To investigate further by dismantling is extremely difficult and I would not recommend it unless you want to risk writing-off your camera completely. I have done this operation (successfully) as a last resort and found that re-seating the printed cable in its socket solved the problem, however, I would not recommend or suggest this decision be entered into lightly. Its a good feeling when you get it working again but sickening when you have to allocate it to the re-cycle bin. As I say, this fault indication has many causes. Getting it serviced by Canon is not an option as the cost would exceed its value so unless you can find a local repairer that's prepared to look at it, then you have very few options.

SOURCE: Stuck CD cassette

Dear needhelp5246,
What you need is a screw driver not a sledgehammer. Open the bottom plate of the system and eject the cd magazine manually. Hope this solve your problem.

SOURCE: cann't eject cassette from Canon ZR60

I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60.
The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own.
I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever.
Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps.
Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it.
I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it.
Good Luck to you.

Hi, my Sony digital camera keeps having a beeping error saying 'reattach power source' and I am unable to remove the cassette from it or use the camera. Is this something I can fix mys


I do not have experience with that particular error code. But I can tell you that I was able to eject the cassette in my DCR-30 by leaving it unplugged and leaving the battery disconnected for a few days. When I reconnected the power supply after that, the cassette loading system reacted by operating normally again.

Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

We own a Sony handy cam model CCD-TRV37 and the tape will not come out. When pressing the eject button a little yellow arrow blinks upward on the screen and a code C:32:20 blinks in the upper right corner....


Error C:32:20 indicates that the take up reel of the cassette that winds the tape into the video cassette is not taking up the tape fast enough thus causing slacking when unloading.
Remove the battery or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning.
if this fails take the camera to a repairman to remove the tape manually.

Jammed tape in Sony camcorder


There is no manual eject.
The only way is to disassemble the camera outer shell, then remove the drive mechanism and using a 4.5 V power supply power the eject mechanism.
It takes 30 min of work when you know how to do it. If you find the service manual (free somewhere in internet) it will tell you how to open the camera.
Hope this helps.

Cassette Jam


The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds.
