Question about Canon Optura 10 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I opened my Optura 10 after a few months and the mini DV cassette would not come out. When I open that side flap, the carriage brings the cassette out, but the side latch does not pop-open. What cold ahve happened?
is this a common problem,
if this is just a mechanical jamming issue, is there any spray torelease the jam?
Please please please DO NOT spray anything in to the camera. The problem is that the main drive belt is slipping or the motor is tired and the mechanism is not completing the unload cycle. This is a trivial repair for an experienced camera tech. The belt should not be more than a couple of $$. The rubber has dried up a bit and is now a little slippery. Call around for the best labor rate and have the unit repaired. It is worth it.
