Question about Canon MV800i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Camcorder was charging as per usual - i went to use it and a message appeared on the screen saying REMOVE CASSETTE! so that what i did. Only prob is that now it won't load any cassettes at all, but if you close the cassette compartment it closes happilly. In the manual it tells you just to unload the original cassette and then re load!! Well this doesn't work!! It is like it doesnt like the cassette but its the same ones I have used for eva - have tried new ones too!!

reading other threads here the soloution that works, yes for real, slap it on the tape side (closed) a few times then try to reload the tape, if it doesn't work the first time, close it and try slaping a few more times. I had to do it a few times but it does work.

you could hit like the method for if a canon won't let you put in a cassette but i don't know if that will work. just hit it on the non screen side a few times and in theory it should work.
if nothing it will get rid of stress

The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
Thanks for using fixya.

Sony HDR models that the carriage won't close is caused by the mode switch on the chassis. The mode switch controls the cameras function for loading and loading of the cassette. Basically tells the electronics what is happening. This becomes dirty and causes the chassis not to complete it's cycle on eject. Thus staying open. It has no idea where the mechanism is at this time. It can be cleaned and realigned but the chassis needs to be removed to get at it. Definitely a service depot repair. Sorry!
