Hi,
I just posted that I had the same problem with the Elura 100 not taking the cassette, although the compartment will close without a cassette. And I did have the problem with the left wheel rewinding, then the beep occurs.
I was tinkering a bit. I decided to take some video on the SD card, and I let it record for a moment. After that, I went back to trying to get the cassette compartment closed, and it worked! Almost like the camera needed reset.
We'll see if it stays corrected!
Prior to that, I have tried using a can of air, loading a new cassette, etc. And I DEFINITELY did NOT have any condensation!
Hope that works for ya!

ccbrandneier:
If the camera battery is over a year old, then there's every chance that it has reached the end of its usable life and you will need to buy a replacement battery.

A quick Google search found a replacement high capacity battery for your camcorder here:

Please be sure to recycle the old battery.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

Most Windows PCs have USB ports, but no Firewire port. As they do not come with this interface, you need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card into one of the PCI bus expansion slots. You can buy these cards cheaply from eBay or Amazon. They will come with a driver for the card.

Of course, this only works with desktop computers, laptops or notebooks cannot be expanded in this way.

Your camera is designed to use SD cards, not SDHC cards which are a later evolution of the SD card with different technical standards.

Your fix is to either stick with mini DV tapes or with SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

It took me a while to figure this one out but I finally did and mine is back to working perfectly. The problem: The Play option worked fine but the camera did not. When turned to camera mode the blue canon screen would come up and then freeze. The only way to turn it off was to remove the battery.

The fix: I was brave enough to take the entire outer shell off the camera. On the main board, underneath the screen/battery side, all the different parts are connected together. There is a single connector from the lens that had come out of its port. The ribbon connector must have somehow been shaken out of the port at some point. With needle nose pliers I carefully fit the ribbon connector back into the port. I carefully reattached the outer shell and everything was back working!

I will warn you that this task takes some time due to many many screws. It's a lot better than sending it off for hundreds of dollars though.

To download from the tape (not the memory card) you need a firewire cable, and a computer that has firewire compatibility. Most laptops have this, but desktops may require a firewire card to be installed.

Not using a camera much, along with time and chemical degradation within the battery itself, and oxidation on contacts both within the camera and on the battery, can cause this problem. It's always best to measure the voltage on a power cord with a voltmeter, but in your case it's probably good since it's new. In certain types of rechargeable batteries, you have to "recycle" them with at least 3 or 4 different charging periods. This is true for new or old ones that haven't been used much. It takes this to get them to fully charge. Make sure the battery is charged fully, if you try a new one, upon discovering a bad or shorted present battery. If it still doesn't work, clean the battery contacts both inside and outside the camera. They can be corroded slightly from battery leakage, or just oxidation from humidity over time. Use a pencil eraser, and wipe them with alcohol and a soft cloth or q-tip. Hopefully, you will have it working. If not, it could be a corroded contact pad on the on/off switch, or something even trickier. Make sure you get an estimate if you should elect to have it repaired. That will usually tell you whether it's time to buy a new one, as you're thinking, anyway. Try these simple things, you might get lucky. Good luck!

well, first, u should check what format of the video file from your cannon. In my opinion, it may be mod format, and vista and lots of players will not support mod. u should try to convert mod to some regular format .
