This seams to be the problem, all the time, plus the sound goes off on most of theses camcorders, and the only way they will work is with an boom, mic.

Could I use an tape clearer when it says eject?

My canon xl1s eats tapes in vcr mode while in rewind. this has happened with two different tapes, sony dvc tapes.


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.

When put in a new tape it sound like something is off track what do i need to do to get working?


Perrhaps the pinch roller is chewing up the tape and is guiding it down.Look for possible dirt on the drum. the tracks or the roller. Also check for free movement of the idle rollers and action of the take up spool. Make sure that the tape is of good quality.

Chewing tapes up terrible destruction on tapes


This is a clear sign that the DVCam tape path needs cleaning. Use a mini DV cleaning tape 2 or 3 times and if it still does not have any effect get it to a camera store for a professional clean.

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.

Chewing up mini-dv tapes


These type of problems usually result from damage to the tape transport mechanism, Unfortunately they are impossible to fully diagnose without a physical examination of the mechanism.
There is not a magic tweak for this i'm afraid.
