The tape is jammed. You can try to forcibly remove it your self but you may end up causing more damage to the tape carrier. Take it to a repair shop where they have the tools to remove it correctly.

Canon ZR300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder THE MINI DV TAPE IT DOES NOT GO INSIDE THE CAMERA, SOUND LIKE IS GOING BUT IS EJECTED WITH A AUDIO WARNING AND IN THE VIEWFINDER SAY REMOVE THE TAPE AND A X APPEARS,...

I know this is going to sound strange. I had the same issue with my ZR300. When you insert a tape and close the mechinism you hear the tape whirl then it pops open and chimes. I found a solution online and thought it was to good to be true. It said to hold the camcorder in your left hand with the right side up (the opposite side of the fold out viewer). You then hit the camcorder , not real hard like slapping something. Open the door and insert the tape and WHAM! It loaded fine. Eight people had tried it according to the review and all eight people had success. I was skeptical but it works! Don't hit it so hard you break it. I did mine twice before it worked but it works everytime now. Trust me just try it and it will work.

Tape is locked inside and cannot eject it. We took to a local camera shop and they said it would cost $200-$250 to help us get it out. I don't need to fix it if that is the case. I just need a player that...

The reason your tape wont come out the camera is because you may have not cleaned the record heads of late, they get tacky, grab your delecate tapes and twined them round the capstan and heads, then yes your little tape is well and truly stuck, trapped like a rat in a cage.
I have managed to get tapes out within a few minutes with a small screw driver and small pin, so I cannot see why they told you that stupid amount of money.

Cassette does not eject

Either the tape is jamed round sound head, or the door is stuck with somthing like a handle of the case on side of camera, but sounds like tape stuck, run film backward a little (not forward) as more tape will get stuck in forward motion.

Tape transport stuck in open position. Will not take tape into unit.

It could be possible that the tape is in the wrong way or that the tape is the wrong size those are both reasons that it may not be closing

When I insert a tape, the screen flashes "reinsert cassette".

Hit your camera several times with a flat hand (bottom, tape side). Its strange but my problem was solved. On internet I found maybe 10 or 15 other people who did the same.  Really works!

Cassette holder does not close

Try inserting another tape first. If the trouble is still there,Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
