    I had the same problem with my camera and tried the solutions listed on the web like banging on the side of it, pulling out the battery and putting it under a 60 watt bulb. I eventually sent it to a repair shop and this is what they had to say. The motor starts to wear out and turns at a slightly slower speed than normal which will mess up the recording process. The camera detects there is a problem with the motor speed and will not allow you to put another tape into the camera since it won't be able to record properly and protects you from wasting tapes. The fix is to replace the servo motor. It is going to cost me $127.00 to replace the motor and have it cleaned. I asked if this is a problem with just Canon Eluras in particular. He said he has seen this happen with various brands of cameras. The motors just eventually wear out.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD-FX340 NTSC. It will not accept a tape. I can hit the eject button and the tape mechanism will come up and pop open. If I close it without a tape, it will go back down....


This problem can be caused by condensation. Leave camera and tapes in a warm dry place for a day and try again. If that doesn't help, there may be a tape threading fault. This can be something as simple as a broken drive belt, but still will require professional attention.

Wont take tape


Hi,
I just posted that I had the same problem with the Elura 100 not taking the cassette, although the compartment will close without a cassette. And I did have the problem with the left wheel rewinding, then the beep occurs.
I was tinkering a bit. I decided to take some video on the SD card, and I let it record for a moment. After that, I went back to trying to get the cassette compartment closed, and it worked! Almost like the camera needed reset.
We'll see if it stays corrected!
Prior to that, I have tried using a can of air, loading a new cassette, etc. And I DEFINITELY did NOT have any condensation!
Hope that works for ya!

Won't except tape


I have a ZR100 that did the same nearly the same thing - but it was only beeping twice. I followed the advice another thread suggested - I banged it twice on the opposite side from the door but it didn't fix it. Then I banged it twice on the side with the tape door.... and now all is well!

I couldn't believe that "fixed" it. Like banging the ol' tube color TV on the side to fix the picture. Maybe it is short lived, but if it holds for the rest of this year until the camcorder Christmas sales begin, I'll be happy!

Will not close while tape is in ejecter,alarm beeps and screen says (remove cassete), but will however close without tape??? canon mv830i digital camcorder...


Several things could be happening...the tape is backwards, upside down, inverted or just wrong type since it closes without it. Next check to see on the inside if something is jamming the tape. While it closes without a tape there could be something that jams when a tape is inserted.

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.

Will Not Load Cassette


I have the zr850 which I have used less than a dozen times, and it does the same thing as you describe. Was told by canon tech people to try a maxell brand tape and a head cleaner tape. Have not tried their sugestion yet. camera is 3 months old.

I'm not from the UK so can't help you find a lab. but regarding your problem - The fact that it works well without a tape tells us that the load motor and possibly even the capstan motor and associated mechanisms are working. It doesn't tell us much about anything else though. Could be that the head drum is not spinning - This can be the result of a siezed drum motor, or power supply fault(if seized it will draw excess current, thus giving a battery warning indication). A faulty, or possibly even a correcly working dew sensor - This will allow the heads to spin, but prevent the tape from actually lacing up. This is a 'hard' one really, because if the dew sensor is faulty you will get this problem, but you will get the same problem when the sensor is working and actually doing its job in that it has really detected moisture. There are many other possible causes too. The first thing to look for is to see if the heads are spinning - or at least see if they *try* to spin, because unless they *are* spinning the tape will never load. Also, the heads *shouldn't* be spinning with no tape inserted - if they are then this suggests that the dew sensor has been activated (the heads are made to spin under this condition in an attempt to dry things out). If this gives no clues, the next step would probably be to dismantle the thing and attempt to load a tape by hand (looking for signs of jamming mechanism, etc. Anything more serious than this is one for the workshop. Platano guatemalteco? Good luck!
