Looks as if it is worn out - replace it

Canon Elura 40MC... | Answered on Sep 30, 2017


I would take it in and have it retrieved as it could damage it if i told you another method. A camera shop will take this out and if damaged fix it and put it onto a dvd of some sort for you for under $25 bucks respectively. I would never tell my clients to try to get the tape out if I knew it might in danger its contents actually we are not allowed to. I also hate telling you to bring the matter somewhere else but to entertain the best way of getting the tape out would be a expert and nothing more.

You are not alone. This is a known service problem for this series of cameras. Cannon has a service notice on its website. Look here:

I got the same problem

What you have is a bad tape mechanism. It can be replaced. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

It's the camera itself, it needs some fine tuning. I'd recommend finding a local camera repair shop before throwing in the towel on this one.

What is the camera doing? Is it shutting off completely or is the screen turning off? Is the battery pack new or very old? How are the contacts between battery pack and camera? You can test battery with a voltmeter to see if it is holding or draining power after being charged.

If you can plug into the a/c outlet and to see if it turns on. If it does turn on, it is your battery. You can buy batteris for those relative cheap.

Go to canon's website navigate to its download page for camcorders, then plug in information about your operating system and download the new driver for Vista. Restart your computer, plug in cable and camcorder. Should work.

Additionally if you want clean up your registry, use free Eusing registry fixer to fix most problems. It is a stable product.

You write so little it's hard to tell what your problem is... Won't the tape door close? could you have the hinges reversed or something? Can you push them back the right way and then try and close it? Try loading a fully charged battery into it, or plug it into the wall AC. If you have more info please post again.
