This most likely means the taps is jammed.
You can try and get the tape to eject. To do this, remove your battery from the back of the camera. Also if your camera has another small battery under the LCD (the size if a nickel) remove it too. Wait 2 minutes. Then, plug the camera in with the power cord. Try changing the camera from playback to record mode. The tape should eject at this point. If this doesn't work, try it again but this time start in record mode and change to playback after plugging it in.
I hope this helps.
The "will not run problem" was solved by replacing the CR-2025 Lithium battery. The eject symbol continues to appear sometimes and I can remove it and continue operating the camera by turning the power supply "Off then On" again. Camera is now running a recorded cassette but quality of picture is low.
Make sure you turn your other settings in the menu while in camera mode to ext, both or chain. Ext. mode, means pushing record on the camera makes the hard drive record, but not to tape, Both means that both tape and hard drive will record, Chain means when you run out of recording onto tape, the hard drive will automatically start recording as the tape runs out.
You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well.
