Canon optura 30 not ejecting tape

Ensure that the cassette is "squeaky clean" before placing it in the camera. Even almost invisble specks of fluff will jam the whole eject mechanism.

Camera problem

CCD sensor faulty and has to be replaced. Manufacturer will probably repair free of charge even if the camera is out of warranty. Worst case insist on paying only labor to have new CCD block installed ( not expensive : +- 1 hour for trained technician ).

How to remove a tape out of a canon es55 that will not power up even if the battery is charged

If you suspect that your JVC camcorder may have been damaged by plugging in the wrong power cord, it's possible that the cassette mechanism may not release as intended. However, you can try the following steps to manually release the cassette:
  1. Turn off the camcorder: Make sure the camcorder is turned off and unplugged from any power source.
  2. Locate the cassette release button: The cassette release button is usually located on the side or bottom of the camcorder near the cassette compartment. It may be labeled "eject" or have a symbol that looks like a triangle with an arrow pointing up.
  3. Press the cassette release button: Press and hold the cassette release button for several seconds to see if it releases the cassette. You may need to press it firmly or use a pointed object like a pen or pencil to press it.
  4. Manually release the cassette: If the cassette release button does not work, you can try manually releasing the cassette. Look for a small hole on the camcorder near the cassette compartment. This hole may be labeled "emergency release" or have a symbol that looks like a triangle with an arrow pointing down. Insert a straightened paperclip or similar object into the hole and press gently to release the cassette.
If you are unable to manually release the cassette, it's possible that the camcorder has been damaged beyond repair.

My Canon ZR-40 Mini DV Camcorder only has a blank screen when in VCR mode. Cannot use any VCR functions. When I try to record, it says 'No Card' but there is no slot for an SD card at all.

It's possible that the video head is dirty or damaged, which is preventing the camcorder from playing back tapes. You may need to clean or replace the video head. As for the "No Card" message, it may be a default message that appears when the camcorder cannot detect a tape. Check that the tape is inserted correctly and try a different tape to see if the issue persists. If the problem continues, it may be a more serious issue with the camcorder that requires professional repair.

My CANON MV940 DIGITAL VIDEO CAMCORDER cant charge.....when i plug it in the battery charge indicator does not flash or light up

If your Canon MV940 digital video camcorder is not charging when you plug it in, there are a few things you can check to try to determine the cause of the issue:
  1. Check the power adapter: Make sure that the power adapter is securely plugged into the camcorder and that the outlet you are using is working. Also, check that the adapter is not damaged or malfunctioning.
  2. Check the battery: Make sure that the battery is inserted correctly and that it is not damaged or worn out. If the battery is old or has been used for a long time, it may no longer hold a charge and will need to be replaced.
  3. Check the charging port: Make sure that the charging port on the camcorder is clean and free of debris. If there is debris blocking the port, use a soft-bristled brush or a can of compressed air to clean it out.
  4. Check the battery terminals: Make sure that the terminals on the battery are clean and free of debris or oxidation. Clean the terminals using a soft-bristled brush or a pencil eraser.
  5. Check the firmware: If the problem persists, check to see if your camcorder's firmware is up to date. If it isn't, update it.
If you've tried all of these steps and you still cannot charge your camcorder, it's possible that there is a hardware issue with the camera. In this case, you may need to contact Canon support for further assistance. https://amzn.to/3WisSDI

Need help understanding a transfer from the Canon MV830i camcorder to Macbook

  1. To transfer video footage from your Canon MV830i camcorder to your Macbook, you will need a FireWire cable and a FireWire USB adapter. This cable connects the camcorder to your computer, and the adapter allows the FireWire connection to be recognized by your Macbook. You can find this cable and adapter on Amazon or other electronics retailers.
  2. To transfer the footage to your computer, you can use the built-in iMovie software on your Macbook. This software lets you capture the footage from your camcorder and import it into the program for editing.
  3. You can reuse the tapes by recording the footage you have already captured. Make sure you have transferred the footage to your computer before recording it.
  4. Some other advice:
  • Make sure your camcorder is in VCR or VTR mode before connecting it to your computer.
  • Test the connection and transfer process before filming important footage.
  • Check the manual of the camcorder for detailed instructions on how to transfer footage.
  • Be patient; transferring footage from a camcorder to a computer can take some time.
Remember that transferring footage from a camcorder to a computer can be a bit complicated, but with some patience and practice, you'll get the hang of it. Remember always to consult the manual of the camcorder for detailed instructions and always keep your computer and software updated.
