    camcorder rejects cassettes 

  • ThomVan Aug 30, 2008

    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

Tip

Remove tape issue


I just rec'd. a response from Canon in regards to my recent issue that you are all having with tapes being ejected, not loading. I was told that the issue was due to the many different tape manufacturers using different types of lubricants for their tapes. These lubricants can build up on the head and cause the tape eject issues. They suggest trying a dry cassette cleaner, but as my camera will not even accept a tape that option is not viable. I will try using denatured alcohol on an electronic swab (large q-tip available at Radio Shack) and try cleaning the head. I will keep you all posted on the results. Also Canon said that the posts can be loose and this will also cause problems. I noticed someone else had similar concerns this also something I am exploring and will keep you up to date on.

Cannot get tape to eject


It could be a couple of different issues. These things could help.
(1) Power OFF the camera, remove battery then replace the battery, power up the cam and try to eject tape again. Nothing? try...
(2) Gently press inward on the tape cover with both thumbs a few times. Then, while pressing gently inward with one hand, press the release/eject-tape function until you hear a click or release sound. Then, if it doesn't open automatically, gently "help" open the hatch.

If it remains stuck, after follwing these steps a few times it would be my guess that perhaps the camera has been dropped in a way that jammed the mechanism controlling the eject function.

TIPS that may prevent having eject problems: When loading tape, be sure to insert the tape correctly and slowly, makeing sure the tape is placed properly. Gently press on the specific location indicated to close the tape holder, and wait for the tape to "seat" properly before closing any other part of the tape cover or hatch mechanism. Taking a few extra seconds when loading the tape can save extended frustration later.

This is a common problem often caused by a problem with the head/motor assembly. This is not a DIY repair. It is possible that this can be repaired without any parts. Expect to pay in the $150 range for labor.

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.

I can't eject cassette from my Canon MV800i


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.
