Question about Canon ZR300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My canon zr300 mini dv camcorder keeps ejecting tapes, can't get a tape in to record or anything My Canon ZR300 video camera is having the same problem. It just started two weeks ago. When I insert a tape and try to close the lid it beeps and says "remove the cassette" and the lid will not close all the way. I tried a newly charged battery and a new tape several times and it still has the error. The manual said something about a camera malfunction and this message is to protect the tape. I was hoping I would be able to troubleshoot without having to send in for service but I have not seen any posted solution.
Wholey ****!!! that actually worked!!! I tried tapping it once or twice with no avail, then I punced it 5 or six times and it worked!!! lol.

Wow! The "Fonzie" method really did work for me too! I put my camcorder on my bed with the tape enclosure (closed) facing me and I gave it a good whack with my fist. I turned it on and it accepted the tape. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
