Question about Canon Optura 30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

My canon Optura 30 will not power on and will not eject the tape. I plugged it in the wall. I popped out the battery and re-inserted it. Nothing happens. What is wrong? What do I need to do? How can I at least eject the tape?

Remove tape from dead camcorder?


I think the battery failed, I would replace the battery. You can buy the battery by number (battery info is printed on the battery) on eBay.

Optura 60 cannot be turned on


Whether you think the battery is fully charged or not this sounds like a defective battery problem. Have the battery checked.

Tape won't eject on Canon Optura 20 MiniDV. About


This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry or a bad motor and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

DV tape won't eject from Canon Optura 20. Power on, screen flashes "eject". Battery is fine. Tape comes up but won't release.



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.

    Reads "eject tape" or "remove tape"


    Theres been a failure in the drive system for the tape. Probably mechanical, so you woul need to take it in to get fixed.

    A few times I've been able to resolve this by blowing compressed air in the frame and cleaning the head (if u can get to it)

    Optura Pi is eating tapes


    hi from what i understand by "eat" is that the coil is popped out what it means is that the coil leader is misplaced and letting it to run free out of place this can be fixed by you if you will find what had gone wrong in that path (broken pin, cog etc...) and glue it back or fix the missing element in place good luck

    Cassette Jam


    The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
