Sanyo VM-RZ2R camcorder cassette not releasing

Thanks Pyrhyc for your response. I can't see any gearing damaged. I suspect the pin you refer to is not moving, however, I can't locate the small plastic pin. Can you give me any further hints as to the position of this pin on this model ? Thanks very much.

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 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...


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 ZR500 won't close cassette bay


If your camcorder experiences an error, you may be presented with a ?Remove the Cassette? message. There are several reasons that this message may appear, but it is essentially a safety warning that is designed to protect the camcorder and/or tape from damage. The camcorder?s tape drive mechanism is made up of many precision components that, once damaged, may cause further problems if the mechanism continues to operate. When a problem is detected the safety mechanism is activated. The ?Remove the Cassette? warning and the camcorder?s safety mode may be activated by a variety of conditions such as: 1. Condensation is detected ? If condensation is detected by the camcorder, the ?Remove the Cassette? warning may occur. 2. Component failure ? If an electrical or mechanical component in the camcorder fails, the safety mode may activate to prevent any further damage to the camcorder. 3. Sand or grit damage ? The camcorder?s tape drive mechanism consists of many tiny gears. Sand or grit can cause a gear to jam and stop turning. This will cause the camcorder's safety mode to activate. 4. Impact damage ? If a camcorder is accidentally dropped or bumped against a hard surface, it is possible that a misalignment of the tape drive mechanism may occur. 5. Liquid damage ? If either the camcorder or the tape is exposed to water or any other liquid, a variety of malfunctions may result. Please avoid this situation. 6. Improper videotape insertion ? If a tape is forced into the cassette compartment, or if the cassette compartment is pressed down while the tape is loading, damage may occur to the tape drive mechanism. Please refer to the User's Manual. 7. Damaged or defective tape ? If a tape becomes damaged, please discontinue its use. Operational Recovery Steps Depending on the conditions that caused this message to appear, it is possible that the camcorder operation may recover. Please follow these steps: 1. Eject the videotape Insert a new or known good videotape. If the message does not persist, it is possible that the tape was damaged. If the camcorder still displays the message with a new tape, please proceed to step 2. 2. If condensation had been detected causing the Remove the Cassette warning, remove the cassette, and allow at least one hour for the moisture to dry. If the "Remove the Cassette" message continues, the camcorder may require service. Please contact Canon USA's Tech Support Center at 1 (800) 828-4040. Technical support hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00am - 8:00pm (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to carecenter@cits.canon.com.

Dew Detected message


When the camera's circuits detect condensation on the tape heads, this message is shown and the camera shuts down. This is to prevent damage to tapes, that could stick to the damp head.  It is recommended to leave the camera in a warm and dry place until sufficient time has elapsed for the condensation to evaporate. This may be several hours. Do not leave the camera anywhere too warm that is likely to damage it, like on a stove or radiator.  This issue is commonly caused by moving the camera from the cold outdoors, into the warmth of indoors. If the symptoms persist, the head may be dirty. try a head cleaner cassette, or failing that, return for service.
