Question about Computers & Internet
The model canon camcorder is MV800i , the cassette is a TDK mini dv 60.
The loading mechanism will operate correctly with no tape installed but as soon as the mentioned tape is installed it wont even allow the tape to lower into the camcorder and after 5 seconds reopens and the lcd display says "remove the cassette".The camcorder is plugged into the power adapter and shows full charge, so low power is not the problem.
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
