Check and make sure the video head drum is spinning. If not, the mechanism will not fully eject. This is usually a componet (pc board) problem and will need to be sent to a Canon repair center.

Canon's knowledge base: My tape will not eject. How can I get it out?
"The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening a cover. When the cover is fully open, the cassette tape will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the tape still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility."

Have you tried to open it via connecting the camera to the AC adapter? If the same thing persists, then you've eliminated a power issue. Which would lead me to perhaps a tape issue. How often do you clean the heads? How often do you use the camera? Perhaps a service is necessary?

Keep us updated.

My canon zr850 is rejecting mini dv tapes what do i do?


Sometimes this is caused by the tape itself, or more specifically, the tape case. If the tapes are labeled, there is a chance that the flap which lifts to expose the tape is stuck closed. Check this by locating just bellow the flap on the tape a recessed button. Press and hold it while opening the flap. If it's sticky, or stuck and is difficult to open, this is your problem. Make sure the flap opens unrestricted by removing the labels from the case which would hinder this motion. Hope this helps.

How to fix a stanley power-lock 25 ft measuring tape


Take the four corner screws out and the last center (short screw out). Split the shells in two pieces. Seperate the yellow or measureing tape from the black spindle tape. The spindle tape holds or attaches the measurement tap to the spindle. I have only seen a plastic spindle and this tutorial only applies to the plastic one. Take the spindle out and set the half casings on their backs, so you can see the cavity of the shells. The black spindle tape will be preformed to only wrap one way. Go ahead and attach the yello measuring tape to the black spindle tape. Pay close attention which side of the yellow tape is facing up or in our intended direction which is towards the center of the spindle. This way when you pull the tape out it is facing up for the person can see the measure marks. Wrap the tape tightly. If the tabs are broke and there's no way to secure the Yellow to the black, use two strips of Duct Tape and adhere the sections together. Do not use too much tape, since the clearance inside the spindle is tight. Once you wrap the tape inside, put a temporary piece of tape to secure the yellow and keep it from unraveling again. Next take a 1" wood screw and a battery powered drill and insert the screw into the center of the plastic spindle. Slowly tap the screw until it catches, do not drill the screw all the way in, only enough to catch in the plastic. Once the screw is partly into the plastic place the spindle into one of the half shells. The reason for the drill and screw is to return the tension back to the internal spring. Whichever side you placed the screw into you need to be sure to apply a clockwise turn. Keep the hex head of the drill so to not release the tension. At the same time place the spindle in the half shell and lock its square center piece into the shell. Now you can remove the screw from the center, then remove the tape holding the yellow meauring tape down, Still holding the measuring tape so it wont unravel, begin placing the last half shell on. Obviously you need to line everything up so the tape slides freely through its opening. Align the tape slide stop, which rests between the two shell halves. Replace the screws and remember the short one goes in the middle and holds down the belt clip.

Tape will not eject


If you remove the power while the basket is halfway up, you should be able to remove the door. Then look to see if the reels are turning when you try to elect the tape. The error code you are getting indicates the reels are not turning for some reason. You can ssist the reels turning as the tape is ejected if you have a small plastic pick or a toothpick into the reels to assist the reels turning and tehn you may be able to remove the tape.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
