    Canon MV800i Mini DV Digital Camcorder


    Camera will not allow tape to be loaded.  It beeps a few times and ejects the cassette.
    Without cassette it goes through the loading motions but with cassette the loading sequence is broken and is rejected

My Canon camrecorder will not load cassettes. When you close the compartment without a tape it closes fine but with a tape inseted it will not close. The mechanism whirls and ejects the tape rather than accepting. It is a Canon MV800

I have the same problem but nothing has worked! There's a bit of a burnt smell inside the unit but it powers up ok - well to the point of the annoying 'eject' sounds, and the more frustrating problem of...


This is commonly a 'capstan motor' the part that drives the tape. This causes no eject, sometimes a burnt smell and blown internal fuses.
The motor needs replacing, possibly a fuse and a check for why it has a burnt smell.

Hi,
The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
Thanks for using fixya.

Loading tapes


I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

Canon mv800i fault


OK after searching the net to fix this problem and no one having the answer I decided to fix it my self.
My Canon MV 800i cam had the same fault to I took it to bits. Inside there’s the cams main board that has loads of ribbon cable connecting on to it from its bits like lens, power supply, viewfinder , cassette deek. I unplugged all of these and removed its main board and cleaned all the ribbon cables connecting end with isopropyl alcohol, you can use most electrical cleaners should do the some trick. Then just reassembled the cam and tested all fixed
Give that a go and see how you get on

Loading tapes


I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.
