Usually you need power to get the tape to eject from the carriage.

Is the camera dry yet?

It says condensation and wont work


This normally is cause from of course condensation got wet or damp, and some times it is just that the tape area needs cleaning. Best thing first is try to new tape, then of course make sure it is dry, leave cover open and camera in warm area, if not then needs cleaning. mike

When i put a tape in it beeps then would not eject


Ether the tape is cought inside the camera or the eject motor is not releasing the tape inside try the following

1. Take battery out
2, put it back in and press the eject but with the camera up to your ear.

If you hear it trying to eject the tape got ate inside the unit best thing here to do is take it to a camera shop have them extract the tape.

Hope this does help please do make sure you rate before you leave.

MY PANASONIC CAM RECORDER STOPPED WORKING BECAUSE


The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

Tape is locked inside and cannot eject it. We took to a local camera shop and they said it would cost $200-$250 to help us get it out. I don't need to fix it if that is the case. I just need a player that...


The reason your tape wont come out the camera is because you may have not cleaned the record heads of late, they get tacky, grab your delecate tapes and twined them round the capstan and heads, then yes your little tape is well and truly stuck, trapped like a rat in a cage.
I have managed to get tapes out within a few minutes with a small screw driver and small pin, so I cannot see why they told you that stupid amount of money.

Tape not loading


Chances are it is in need of a major cleaning. Usually by the time this happens the cleaning tape will do no good. A good internal cleaning is usually the only thing that will help it........Has it been droped? If it has then you could need repairs

I was getting the same code and a dinging noise. I tried a cleaner and I tried letting the camera dry out...it wasn't wet! Neither worked. SOOO...Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. The stripes/bars also went away. Camera1.gif instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.
