Question about Canon ZR850 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camcorder will not let me insert a tape. When trying, it beeps and the screen says "remove cassette tape." The instruction manual says to take the tape out and reinsert it. I have tried this several times, and the camcorder will still not accept the tape. I would appreciate any help getting this to work. Thanks!

Tips for a great answer:
This can be caused by several problems including 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.
