The dreaded canon cassette curse! "Remove the cassette". The tape would neither play nor record. I kept getting the message to remove the cassette. After opening and closing the cassette cover about 50 times the cassette was still stuck and then things got worse. The fuse blew. Shaking the camera with the cassette compartment open then produced a small spring.

On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.

Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.
