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,

Video Cassette is being automatically ejected when I insert it for viewing


You need to take the cover off and look inside to see if there is something inside that should not be. Perhaps you can look with a flashlight through the entrance hole. You could pick up the machine and shake it and see if anything is rattling around. These things have many plastic and nylon parts which can break over time and the machine will sense a problem and eject. If you cannot find a problem by the suggestions above then it will need to go for repair-unfortunately it would probably cost more than it is worth to have it repaired.

Your camera appears slightly older than mine so I will do my best for you. Have you tried ejecting the tape with the power off? If I have problems I slide the eject button when the camera is off but plugged in and the tape can be ejected. I suspect the tape mechanism is in trouble. When a tape stuck in mine I had to literally force the cover open. But this is a last resort.

Give my suggestion a try and apologies if you have already tried that...

power down the computer and then the drive, disconnect the drive from the computer, and then power up the drive. If it still fails to eject, power down the drive again and this time power up while holding the eject button.

Can't eject tape from deck


On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape - disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...

I have been using my machine with no problems, until recently. The machine will not stay on more than a few minutes when I try to use it, either watch a tape or tape a show. It starts, then just shuts down. When the machine is turned back on it ejects the tape????
Can you help, please.
