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 name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Failing to recognize tapes in Sun StorageTek C2 tape library


Are you seeing a cleaning light or is it just ejecting the tapes? If it is ejecting them then make sure to try a brand new tape of the right type (if it is the wrong tape type it will eject).
Also try a cleaning tape if the cleaning light is on.
If that does not work then you will need to send in the tape drive somewhere for repair as the head might be worn out or the drive needs a good service.
Try going to http://tape-drive-repair.com who sell and repair these units. The LTO2 and LTO3 drives are pretty inexpensive now and so this should be fairly cheap to have sorted.
Also this unit is the same as the Quantum superloader3 so that might help if you are still googling for a solution

Hi I have a provlem, I have a canon xl1 and when I try to open it to tack the mini dv out but the only thing it opens its the door but the mini dv dose not comes out, if someone have some recommendation it...


You have to have a battery attached in order for the camera to eject the tape, also sometimes if you don't open the door all the way it won't eject the tape either. If it's not that the DV deck may be broken and you could send it in to the company or you could pay a local camera repair company to fix it.

My Sony DCR-TRV240 camcorder won't eject the tape. The power and all camera features work, but it won't eject a tape.


I'm sorry that the Camcorder is not ejecting tape. Please follow the troubleshooting steps provided below and check the operation:

1. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged. 2. Perform Reset by following steps:

1. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD panel of the camcorder. 2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds. 3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

3. Perform a manual power reset by following the steps:

1. Turn off the camcorder. 2. Disconnect AC power adapter. 3. Remove the battery pack. 4. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds. 5. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position. 6. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack. 7. Turn on the camcorder.

I put in a tape and hit record. The eject symbol flashes and won't let me record or play back footage. Sometimes it will eject the tape.


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

VHS tape will not eject


Ida oh Ida................it won"t be you that removes the tape!
 It should be the Technician you offer $25 to do it for you. It can usually be done with the right gear and often without major damage to the tape itself particularly if what is on it is very important to you!
At the same time you may learn if the repair is worth it.

good luck
