Question about Canon ES900 Camcorder

1 Answer

Self-eject My ES900 has developed a problem with self-ejecting the tape when user has not called for ejection. Sometimes the tape is still engaged and must be careful when removing cassette. Without any rhyme or reason, must reinsert and close awaiting camera's own decision to accept so can record and/or play back. Any suggestions?

Hi there, I think I can offer some info, though it's not good news.
This cassette ejection is controled by a small motor in the bottom of the cassette carriage (see picture). Unfortunatly whether the problem be this cheap little motor or a switch that controls it, taking it to a repair shop would cost much more than this little camcorder is worth.self-eject - 8477600.jpg Sorry for the bad news, I have the same camera as you can see it's taken apart now. I posted another solution to get the tape out if you come to that problem.

Hope this helps

Tape keeps getting ejected

This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

Tape's film not being released when ejected.

I think you mean that when the tape is ejected it leaves some tape loose in the machine this is caused by failure of the take up clutch to engage on eject probable cause can be belt, or clutch mechanism

Eject

dbfe0d0.jpg
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To manually remove the tape from the Canon ES900 video camera do the following after reading all below.
1. Remove the two small screws from the tape door face. I show the entire carriage removed.
2. Look for the small metal peg on the left side, about 1” down from the top of the tape carriage.
3. Using something small push down on the peg to release the tape door.
4. Important Note: Most likely the tape will still be wrapped around the video head and held there by two capstans, (one on each side of the head)
5. Carefully pull out the tape not damage it any more than necessary. Keep in mind this might cause the player to “eat” the tape at this area so smooth the tape here with your fingers (nothing metal) and wind the tape to begin playing past this area if possible.
It seems this is a common problem with this unit; Canon should have put a better motor here in this critical area.
Good luck, hope this helps everyone,
