Question about Sanyo Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have an old Video Camera, Sanyo VM-RZ2R 8mm camcorder. I can't get the cassette holder to eject. There's no cassette in it at the moment but when I press the eject button, the camcorder turns a couple of little plastic wheels within it but the cassette holder does not eject. I have some old footage of the kids and was hoping to get it copied to digital eventually. Can you help? Thanks.

Your eject problem will be one of three things. 1- the gears for the eject mechanism have shifted and not making contact with each other. You can fix this by realigning the gears. 2- The gears are stripped and need replaced. 3- there is a small plastic pin that releases the cassette bay. check to see if this pin is broken. If so, then you will need to replace the pin or the gear the pin is attached to. With this being an older model, parts will be extremely hard to find. Let's hope that the gears are just misaligned.

Canon 330 i wont eject cassette battery is fully charged it makes a whirring noise then stops


What cassette? it is a digital camera, and it contains a battery and a memory card. The card should be come out, after you pressed it once. I hope you did not put in the memory card the wrong way around, because it could damage the contacts in the memory card holder.
Again, try to remove the battery for a few moments and the memory card. Then after inserting both everything should work. If not, contact a Canon certified repair centre. Fist ask what they will charge you for a diagnose. And also check what a new camera will set you back. Then decide if it is worth visiting a repair centre.

My canon mv750i camera is broken and wont switch on but i want to get the video cassette out. How do I get the cassette out without turning the camcorder on. Thanks


on the cassette holder there should be a little manual release hole where you can insert a paper clip and have it release the lock so you can pull the metal enclosure out like the automated system does when there is power to the motor.

The cassette mechanism on my My Panasonic PV-GS120 camcorder will not open. The outer door opens and the camera repeatedly makes a sound like it is trying to raise the cassette but something is holding it...


HI
This looks like the door is jammed. Try to yank it out after pressing the eject button. Try this a few times and if the mechanism is not damaged should set it right. DONT USE TOO MUCH OF FORCE CAUSE THERE IS A RISK OF DAMAGE.
Regards,
Plz. dont forget to rate my suggestions.

Sanyo VM-RZ2R camcorder cassette not releasing


I'm sorry I don't know the location of the pin in this unit, just that there should be a small pin that presses the release mechanism. I couldn't find any on line service manuals or breakdown diagrams for this model. I did find several sites where you can purchase a service manual for it. here's a link to the Google search I did for the service manual, it lists several places that sell it.

I have an 8mm high digital camcorder tape which got tangled in the camcorder. when i wound the tape back in the case and returned it to the camcorder it would only play a high pitched sound with no...


I've had to fix this problem several times. You need to open the 8mm cassette, and manually rewind to where the tape got twisted around. Then untwist it, and manually wind the tape back on the reels. and then put the cassette back together. If the tape isn't torn you should be fine. There might be creases in the tape- but they will only give you a slight picture glitch or drop out. You need to run a head cleaning tape through your camcorder before you try taping again. It might hose up the next tape if you don't.

Sony tr105e camcorder. Frame wouldn't lock on playback. Found one of the left hand pulley assemblies had dropped into the bottom of the cassette housing. Replaced it and it worked ok intermittently, but...


Tried to replace the pulley asembly but, at 83 yrs old, my hands were too shaky for success. So I'm selling it for spares and have purchased a used TRV340E on eBay to view and convert my 150qty Video8 cassettes to DVD.
However, I do have a problem with my Sony EV-C3E PAL 8mm VCR - the picture won't lock (i.e., the Frame Hold doesn't synchronise). Does anybody have a simple DIY solution?

Good camcorder gone bad


I've usually had to disassemble the cassette housing to extract the tape.

I have need of a remote for the model 158. Is yours available?
thanks
