Question about Canon ZR20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
(I know this is old but I'm answering it anyway since this just happened to me)
I had to manually remove the tape from my zr20 because it kept telling me to remove the tape, but the tape never actually popped out. The metal holder kept on sliding up and down but never opening.
I would recommend getting this checked out if you can afford it. Otherwise, open the bottom wait until it gets as far up as it goes and remove the battery. Then, use an eyeglass-repair screw driver to pull the tape portion out horizontally. Watch out not to bend any metal, don't try to force it. Once the tape pops out take it out of the camcorder and put the battery back in. Close the tape holder and the cover. It should work now. The problem shouldn't occur the next time you put the tape in. If it does there's something actually wrong with the camera.

Try toggling the opening hatch, tricking the machine into thinking it's being opened and closed...
