Sony Video 8 TRV30E Handycam keeps ejecting tapes

The real reason this is happening is the spinning heads can not equalise, either with a preset speed or match the speed of the recorded media and so it ejects the tape as being incompatible.
As I have done this in frustration and to just get the camera working, the mechanism inside these Sony cameras is so delicate and on such a soft-metal base plate, that the plate bends and is likely to be the cause of the problem in the first place (a small knock in the bag etc - you know where it says on the tape cover to 'press here' and in the instructions it says "do not press elsewhere on the cover" thats why, it's delicate).
Before you damage that camera and loose the ability to adjust/correct the speed of the heads all together, I would strongly suggest you take it in for repairs to a very reputable technician.
NOTE:: If your speed is wrong now and it is fixed, all that you have taped on the wrong speed may not be playable when you get it back - backup/copy all your compact (8mm) tapes to your computer/DVD/VHS anything.
