Hi,

Looks like the Canon Camcorder has failure in the drive system for the tape. This is mechanical issue, so you would need to take it in to get fixed.

A few times I've been able to resolve this by blowing compressed air in the frame and cleaning the head
( try this if you can do it )

Else, you will have to get this repaired by a professional technician.

Remove tape from dead camcorder?


I think the battery failed, I would replace the battery. You can buy the battery by number (battery info is printed on the battery) on eBay.

Hello, I want to download video clips from my Optura 50 tape onto my mac computer, and I have various adobe software applications available like final cut pro


You will require a firewire cable to connect to the Mac. Usually a 4 to 6 pin cable, the newer Macs use a 9 pin version.
iMovie will do the job as will Final Cut.

DV tape won't eject from Canon Optura 20. Power on, screen flashes "eject". Battery is fine. Tape comes up but won't release.



Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

My camera is jammed up and won't eject the tape. Any thoughts? When I plug in the power cord it won't even power up???


Sounds like you have a "dead" camcorder. This can be caused by a circuit protect (tiny fuse) being blown or a bad board. This will need to be repaired by an experienced technician. <a href="http://www.austintelstarservices.com">www.austintelstarservices.com</a>

What kind of cable do I need to upload my video tapes to my computer. I have a Canon Optura 50 mini DV


you need a firewire cable
it is also called IEEE 1394.
however you need a firewire port on your computer as well.
if you don't have a port like that, then you can buy a firewire pci card.
ask at your local electronics shop.

Canon Optura 40 playback - only get blue screen - no image, no sound


Try a cleaning tape. Buy a good quality cleaning tape (Panasonic makes one) and remember: cleaning tapes are abrasive so don't overuse it! Overuse can result in the need to replace the rotating drum assy in the camcorder. I'll bet a cleaning tape takes care of your problem.

Optura Pi is eating tapes


hi from what i understand by "eat" is that the coil is popped out what it means is that the coil leader is misplaced and letting it to run free out of place this can be fixed by you if you will find what had gone wrong in that path (broken pin, cog etc...) and glue it back or fix the missing element in place good luck
