    The model is a canon Mv 800i and the cassette used is a tdk mini dv 60. When inserted it takes 5 seconds and ejects it. With no tape inserted the mechanism loads and operates correctly. It is plugged into the power supply so it has full power, as displayed on the screen, so that is not the problem. We have tried different tapes and this made no difference. The screen displays "remove the cassette".

    We tried this last night, but it made no difference. Have you another solution?

    Tried removing the tape and leaving it open and on for longer than an hour, but this did nothing.

    That would be great to try. The camcorder is longer in warranty.

    Thanks

Hi,

To my understanding of your concern, three possibilities:

  • the tapes themselves;
  • loading belt/drive/motor;
  • other mechanical issue.
Related probable corrective actions:
  • Depending on the weather condition in your region/area (rainy, humid, cold, hot), the tapes have a tendency to stick together to the point that the Canon MV800 might not be able to unstuck them and load the single layer of tape across the video head. The machine will sense a fault and therefore request the eject. Suggestions: Keep the machine and tapes in the same room for them to be at same ambient temperature; Before using, power the MV800 a couple of minutes (say 5~10) to warm it up (for possible condensation; Use a cassette rewinder/forwarder to exercise the tapes; and pls verify that the tapes are not dusty, moldy or for the presence of foreign materials such as bits of paper and others.
  • There might be a problem with the loading belt, drive or motor; this of course would require the services of a qualified and competent repair person. However, it is possible to check by visually inspecting the visible mechanism to look for signs of damage/fault;
  • Other mechanical issues could include tape inside/down sensor, spreader arms, capstan motor, pinch roller and the other mechanical. Again, this would necessitate the intervention of a skilled technician.
  • In some instances, it is possible to have foreign objects/materials inside the unit, to try and clean without opening the MV800, a can of compressed air might help. Of course extreme care in using/pointing the nozzle as some components are fragile such as the video head.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    it has been reported that this error would be fixable by removeing the tape for around a hour, see this page

    http://xanli.blogspot.com/2008/02/canon-...



    its not actually your model but a close one still, give that a try.

  • Ekse Jul 31, 2008

    Sorry for delayed response, We can try a firmware update incase its a software problem, if that has no effect you may have to send it in for repair.

Insert sim card


What is your problem with your Sim card? Is your phone shows the "No Sim" or "Insert Sim" or "Sim Rejected" or "Invalid Sim" error? If it is so i am here to help you. If your Samsung SGH-E840 shows the "No Sim" or "Insert Sim" error then remove your Sim from your mobile and place it again correctly. If your mobile shows the error message "Invalid Sim" or "Sim Rejected" the your phone is locked to a particular network. To fix this problem you need to unlock it. Use unlock code to unlock your Samsung SGH-E840. To get the code you have to submit network provider, country and IMEI number of the mobile. Make sure yourself whether you have knew the network provider to which your mobile is locked, country to which the locked network belongs to and IMEI number of your mobile. If not you can find the IMEI number in two ways:
1)Go to Options>status
2)Find IMEI on the back of your mobile, behind the battery.
3)Type *#06# and press call button. It will display your IMEI number.
You can find the network provider to which your mobile is currently locked by switch off your mobile and switch on it again. A logo of the locked network will get displayed on your mobile screen. After knew all these get the code from the site Mobileunlocksolutions.com ,by submitting these to them. Unlock it yourself using unlocking instructions which is given in the site itself.

My Nokia N70from SFR , working with CALL IN EUROPE Sim card , I tried a MOBILIS Sim card ,it ask pin code , I put the Mobilis pin code , no result. I tried the pin code given to me by CALL in europe , no...


Pin Rejected or Sim Card Rejected ?
Of course sim card rejected otherwise you would have blocked the pin code and phone would have asked you the PUK code already but anyway !
Sim Card Rejected !
Options - There is a free unlocker
Click the link to download but you should have special cable ! It is called DKU-5

You do not have one or you could not manage to unlock ?
  1. Take your phone to a unlocker !
  2. Buy code online


Best Regards

Canon mv800i fault


OK after searching the net to fix this problem and no one having the answer I decided to fix it my self.
My Canon MV 800i cam had the same fault to I took it to bits. Inside there’s the cams main board that has loads of ribbon cable connecting on to it from its bits like lens, power supply, viewfinder , cassette deek. I unplugged all of these and removed its main board and cleaned all the ribbon cables connecting end with isopropyl alcohol, you can use most electrical cleaners should do the some trick. Then just reassembled the cam and tested all fixed
Give that a go and see how you get on
