Try this...

Hit the eject button. As soon as it makes it half way, take the battery out.
Leave the white cover open, put the battery back in.

This should take the tape cartridge up all the way and eject the tape.

I had the same problem and it ejected the defective tape

Eject tape now comes up every time i try to record xl1s


This can be caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Canon XL1S EJECT TAPE DISPLAY WITH NEW TAPE ... what is the solutions for this


This can be caused by several problems including a bad video drum, the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Hi 8 Tape Will Not Eject


If you remove the power while the basket is halfway up, you should be able to remove the door. Then look to see if the reels are turning when you try to eject the tape. You may be getting an error code that indicates the reels are not turning for some reason. You can assist the reels turning as the tape is ejected if you stick a small plastic pick or a toothpick into the reels to assist the reels turning and then you may be able to remove the tape.

TApe recording


try using a different tape, some tapes are what you call "wet" meaning they have a lubricant inside them and some cameras don't like them. Try to use Maxell Brand tapes I have used the for over 4 years and never had a problem

Tape ejection


The cassette tray motor might is more than likely damaged, and will need to be replaced. Before you go this route, make sure there is no debris inside the unit, causing it not to eject all the way. Unfortunately, this is not a cheap fix. The XL1S parts are not cheap, and they are labor intensive. So be prepared to shop around to get the best price.

Hope this helps some.

Eating Tape when rewinding in vcr mode


look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt
