Question about Canon ES10V Camcorder

1 Answer

Camcorder is DEAD, need to get the tape out!

This Canon ES10V is completely dead, won't power with a cord or battery, and one of my tapes is still inside. I need a way, schematic or illustration, to get the cassette out manually. I have already removed the tape door and everything is exposed, I just don't know what to do next to get the tape to pop out. The camera means nothing to me, I just want the tape inside so I will take whatever action needed, just need some direction.

Again, the camcorder is DEAD, WILL NOT POWER UP BY ANY MEANS, need to MANUALLY remove the cassette.

    Again, I need a schematic or illustration from someone who can help, I'm not good at guessing at what I need to do.


    Thanks

Tape door won't open or close to release tape

1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com
- if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open.
Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

Camcorder is dead, need to get the tape out!


I would not recommend trying to remove a tape that is stuck Because the eject and load mechanism is controlled by a motor and you have to supply voltage to in the correct polarity to get the camcorder to take the tape in or eject it, that means that you would have to disassemble it.
That is the case with all camcorders - analog, digital, new or old. If you need the tape I suggest sending it in to a shop If you can do the repairs yourself
Dismental the camera. Try to locate the power board. have a look at the components near the battery connector or the power connector. there you will be able to locate 3 to 4 safety fuses. check the continuty. if found open replace it or jump them and and try to eject it.
you can also try to locate the motor for tape deck loading mechanism. Remove the flex ribbion connector of the motor from the pcb, then try giving 3 volt supply from an external device to the motor in both the direction. in one direction it will move the deck outward, but be carefull when the cassette is being ejected a little portion of the tape may get damaged.

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>

Camcorder is dead - power supply not to blame.


Intermittent fault? Playback of recorded footage not possible.
Even tried to check 'playback' with an older tape.

FG fault when starting capstan.

Make sure battery is fully charged or a/c cord is used. Turn power on, and push reset button, try to eject tape again. Your capstan motor may be dead.

No power


One of the fuses is blown on the main pcb, needs to go in for repair if you need to get the tape out i can maybe take some pics at work and post them for you to see sorry.

Tape deck won't eject tape


The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.
