Playback & Ejection Problem

I have a fully recorded tape that I won't playback. When I load the tape the camera (Canon zr25) immediately says EJECT TAPE. It will accept other tapes, and it was playing this tape earlier. Any ideas?...

Hi, You usually get an EJECT TAPE when the camcorder has found an internal problem and either the videocassette or the camera itself has developed a problem. In you case, it looks like you tape has a problem. Daniel

TAPE MECHANISM WON'T ROLL THE TAPE, IN EITHER RECORD OR PLAYBACK


Problem with the tape transport mechanism; could be the rollers are not contacting the tape itself or it could be the springs in the transport. Sounds like an older model. Could clean the rollers with alcohol and swap and if you can open it a like observe what happens with the rollers when you place in playback. These are rather delicately adjusted machines. I would again 1) try cleaning as best you can and very light oil in moving joints/gears aferward. 2) check adjustment of springs when moving from stop to playback. Once you have that whipped the record mecanism may start working as well.

In playback my camcorder stops and 31:11 flashes. Any ideas?


This most likely means the taps is jammed.
You can try and get the tape to eject. To do this, remove your battery from the back of the camera. Also if your camera has another small battery under the LCD (the size if a nickel) remove it too. Wait 2 minutes. Then, plug the camera in with the power cord. Try changing the camera from playback to record mode. The tape should eject at this point. If this doesn't work, try it again but this time start in record mode and change to playback after plugging it in.
I hope this helps.

My canon camera seems to work fine in record mode. The LCD shows the video and the timestamp, and tape is moving. Yet in playback mode no matter what Tape I use (even if I know the tape has video on it)...


The playback head is dirty. Insert a brand new tape into the drive and perform a record, through the entire tape until it reaches the end. Then play a pre-recorded tape.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
