Cassette Loading Problem in Canon ZR200

I could not believe the "smacking solution" for the cassette rejecting problem of ZR200 until I tested it by myself. What is the actual technicality behind it?

My Canon ZR 200 was electing all cassettes new and old alike. On FIXYA I forum I found a superb solution. That is just SRTIKE at the cassette side of the camera twice. YES I did it and it PERFECTLY OK now.
Can anyone say the actual mechanism behind this fixing?

This sounds to me like tape slack. Try to open the tape path of your cassette carefully and wind the loose tape back until you regain tension. Close back the cover and retry. In case the same effect happens again, the tape department of your ZR200 is faulty. Only well schooled stuff should open your Cam because of delicate parts inside!!!

Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Canon zr200 cassette loading


reading other threads here the soloution that works, yes for real, slap it on the tape side (closed) a few times then try to reload the tape, if it doesn't work the first time, close it and try slaping a few more times. I had to do it a few times but it does work.

First if you have a very bad tape (miniDV) (hard to turn by your hand) the camera will automatically eject coz it cant load the tape to it. it is not a head problem. It seems that you have a mechanical loading issue here. But try to put new miniDV tape. ANd post here what happen. PS Dont use compress gas to clean it you might put new problem. Please use only the head cleaner tape (MiniDV) if you want to clean the head. Hope this may help you
