Samsung SCD-5000 miniDV tape deck problem

I open the tape deck by pressing the eject button, then I hear the mechanical system trying to eject the tape deck, Once I open the tape door the tape should pop up to easyly load/ unload tape.This seems to be the problem I have, then when I load a tape it does not get wrapped aroung the video heads as it should once the tape is loaded, Im assuming because once I take the miniDV tape out of the device it looks like its chewed up. Any suggestions will be great, parts numbers would be great as well.

How do I eject cassettes from a Sharp RT-W800 dual cassette deck?

It should work with a second press of that button, after the stop is pressed. If it doesn't there must be something wrong with the mechanism that removes the tapes.

The mechanism maybe out of alignment. Technicians and a service manual is how this gets fixed. The new belts are put in an the mechanism is position to the stop mode for the eject to work.

Pinch roller stuck in "up" position, eject button won't open door

The very first mistake is to pry a door open. That damages them. You are never to do that. The correct way to get a tape out is to open the unit up and find out why the tape is stuck and then take action to release the door in the normal way- usually it is a loose belt or defective cam motor. As to the Pinch roller there are slide plates and even some pinch rollers had lubrication on them so that may have dried leaving you with a stuck part. The normal order of business is the find out what is stuck and then take action to clean and lubricate the mechanism to return to normal function. The problem with some Pinch Rollers is that there may be a particular spot it needs to be set at. This is true if it has a guide fitted to it. Then you will need either a jig or mirror tape to be able to set it correct again. I can not give any further advice without seeing the unit but this should get you started.

Cannot get tape to eject

It could be a couple of different issues. These things could help.
(1) Power OFF the camera, remove battery then replace the battery, power up the cam and try to eject tape again. Nothing? try...
(2) Gently press inward on the tape cover with both thumbs a few times. Then, while pressing gently inward with one hand, press the release/eject-tape function until you hear a click or release sound. Then, if it doesn't open automatically, gently "help" open the hatch.

If it remains stuck, after follwing these steps a few times it would be my guess that perhaps the camera has been dropped in a way that jammed the mechanism controlling the eject function.

TIPS that may prevent having eject problems: When loading tape, be sure to insert the tape correctly and slowly, makeing sure the tape is placed properly. Gently press on the specific location indicated to close the tape holder, and wait for the tape to "seat" properly before closing any other part of the tape cover or hatch mechanism. Taking a few extra seconds when loading the tape can save extended frustration later.

    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...

    My handycam sony steady shot , the tape deck will not open

    Try using the battery charger while attempting to eject it. The battery, although you may not know it, probably cannot supply the power needed to open the tape deck. If it makes a little Ding sound when you press the eject button, that means it is trying to eject the tape. Hope this helps!

    Gs36 tape door doesnt open

    In case anybody read this....     I have a GS-36 that would not eject the tape. I removed all the screws from the bottom and pulled the bottom plate off. Then I fidgeted with the mechanism near the eject button towards the front of the camera.  In my case it had just become stuck and needed to be gently pried open.    Tested it a bunch of times with tape - seems to be o.k.!

    Tape deck won't eject tape

    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.
