I have the same problem. Contacted Canon and they admit that it is a common problem, but will not admit it is their fault. They try to blame it on inferior cassettes, which I have never used. They are happy to fix it for about $400. Canon is absolutely useless on this issue.

How do I fix the tape holder system on my camcorder? The door won't lock, and the cassette won't get inside the compartment.


hi,
is it close without a cassette ? if so the reel sensor in the cassette compartment may be faulty. if the head drum not rotates the cassette drive will not work correctly, if so please loosen the head drum with a plastic rod or some tools like that. do not put your finger in hence sometimes will jam your finger. remember don"t touch the scanning chip of the head.

Cassette Door open and close but tape won't go down into deck


The loader motor turns a belt to draw the tape out of the cassette. Probably needs replacing.

Hi Donald. not sure how many calls you get from


The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver.
This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends.
Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.

From your question, it sounds like you are trying to view a video which has already been recorded on. If that is correct, the video cassette may need to be rewound to the beginning of the tape,

Cassette doesn't load and move down into machine


I had the same problem. With the camera on, keep taking the battery off and putting it back on. Start to close the door and then open it. Eventually you should hear it try to move. Keep doing it and it should move down all the way.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.
