Question about Canon ZR10 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
With tape access door opened properly, tape deck won't eject tape (with power on or off). I can hear it trying, but without success. Suggestions?
Put the power switch in the off position and close the tape door. Pull the battery off. Pull the power cord off. Now plug the power cord in. Wait... Now unplug the power cord. Now plug the power cord in again, wait a sec, and open the eject door. Worked everytime for me. This was the only way I could get mine to fully eject. It won't load a tape to save its life. Its dead to me.. along with all Canon **** devices. Good luck!

The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.
