Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Tape will not eject / Battery full


while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.

Tape will not eject servo reaches halfway but sticks XL1s


Try this...

Hit the eject button. As soon as it makes it half way, take the battery out.
Leave the white cover open, put the battery back in.

This should take the tape cartridge up all the way and eject the tape.

I had the same problem and it ejected the defective tape

Eject

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To manually remove the tape from the Canon ES900 video camera do the following after reading all below.
1. Remove the two small screws from the tape door face. I show the entire carriage removed.
2. Look for the small metal peg on the left side, about 1” down from the top of the tape carriage.
3. Using something small push down on the peg to release the tape door.
4. Important Note: Most likely the tape will still be wrapped around the video head and held there by two capstans, (one on each side of the head)
5. Carefully pull out the tape not damage it any more than necessary. Keep in mind this might cause the player to “eat” the tape at this area so smooth the tape here with your fingers (nothing metal) and wind the tape to begin playing past this area if possible.
It seems this is a common problem with this unit; Canon should have put a better motor here in this critical area.
Good luck, hope this helps everyone,

Playback & Ejection Problem


Hi, You usually get an EJECT TAPE when the camcorder has found an internal problem and either the videocassette or the camera itself has developed a problem. In you case, it looks like you tape has a problem. Daniel
