While downloading a movie to a PC using Microsoft movie maker I decided to change the tape. I opened the tape normally, the tape ejected normally, I inserted another tape and squeezed the tape catch normally, however the tape would not recede into the camera. If I turn power off then on the tape catch releases and opens. I can do this over and over but will not reced or slide into the camera allowing the door to shut naturally.

First take out the battery. Then start unscrewing the outside panels to take it apart. Basically any screw you find, take off. The easiest way not to loose them is by sticking them into the side of a box. After you get the camera panels off, you should be able to carefully get inside and dislodge anything that may be in the way. Once you are able to dislodge the cord or whatever is causing this problem. Try inserting the battery and ejecting the tape. Let me know if you are having any trouble with this or have any other questions and I would be glad to help.
I've had this happen to me a few times. The only way I could get the tape out was to take the VCR apart and carefully pull the tape out of the mechanism and all the tape that had pulled out of the cassette into the machine had to be carefully rewound back into the cassette. The tape itself is usually folded into many folds - so the movie needs to be copied as soon as possible onto a new cassette; as it won't play too many times with all the folds before getting stuck again into the VCR.
There is a little button near the door on the side of cassette itself that will allow you to open the door and rewind the tape easier.
Use Window Movie Maker.
Open Movie maker while the camera (on) is connected to the computer.
Click on Capture video from device and follow the steps.
Look out for any options like create clips and disable them.
Dear etu7diante, The another way to release the cassette from the deck is by moving the flywheel manualy after opening the cover of the system. The system should be disconnected from the power supply. If you are able to to do this please let me know .later I can guide you to do the job. ramesh22
In most video editing programs such as Windows Movie Make, there should be an option for "import video" this should then find your camera and extract the video. As it is a tape based unit it will actually need to run the tape to extract the information.
The folder you are seeing maybe for a still picture feature your unit may have
I had a similar problem with an older panasonic camera. Mybe you have tried this, but opening the door and pushing up on the tape. Push in and use enough force but don't try to break it. Try pressing different spots. Sooner or later the motor might start moving it up. Just a though, it worked for me.
I had the exact same problem, and just by dumb luck, I managed to get the tape compartment to pop open after trying hundreds of things. Maybe this will work for you too...who knows??? What I did was to first remove the battery and AC power to "reset" the camera (I guess). I then put the battery back in place and WHILE HOLDING THE CAMERA IN THE UPRIGHT (AS IF USING THE CAMERA FOR VIDEO) POSITION, I pushed the "Open/Eject" latch. VIOLA!!! Like I said, it may be dumb luck, but I haven't had the problem again. It may be that gravity helped to take the stress off the ejecting mechanism...dunno???? BTW, when I was having the problem, the mechanism would "click" 3 or 4 times while trying to move the tape out. Good luck!!! I hope this helps someone!
