Question about Canon GL1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Canon GL1 Remove cassette error

This has happened to the last 3 tapes i've put into my GL1. I film fine with them and then i start to rewind and it rewinds for about 15 seconds and then says "REMOVE CASSETTE". I try putting it back in and the second it closes it starts beeping and telling me to remove it again. But then when i put a brand new tape in it is fine, until i rewind it and then it won't let me use it. I don't think it has anything to do with condensation because it only happens on rewind and new tapes work fine

    i have the same problem , i even tried a head cleaner...as soon as the door closes it ask you to remove the tape.

    the problem started when i switched from JVC tapes to FUJIFILM....i taped about 10 minutes on the FUJI tape and rewound it then the tape needed to be removed.

I certainly don't intend to be rude or obnotious but your comments on this known prpblem are contraditory to say the least! :
"The problem that you are experiencing with your Canon GL1 camcorder is a common complaint on this model camcorder. The “eject the tape error” is the camcorders way of saying something is wrong and it needs to be sent in for repair. It is not a defect with the camcorder, it is simply the most common complaint when the mechanical assembly is not running smoothly and perfectly." If something is wrong and it's a common problem then it must be defect?!?! Also your pricing for this "repair" is pretty close half of what a used GL goes for over here in Europe. I would definatly be looking for another quote and repair service other than yours!

My Sony DCR-TRV740 camera I just purchased (used), has a playback problem with my 8mm's. When I got the unit I cleaned it well with chamois swaps and MG video cleaner(Recommended by all experts it see


You have a clogged video head. It happens. Do not use the chamois again. Instead, purchase an 8mm head cleaner and give that a try. Only use a brand name cleaner - no generics, and make sure it doesn't come from China!

Panasonic PV-7400 VHS VCR seems to be stuck in Memory Rewind Off mode. I power on, it attempts to rewind (though there is no tape in there now) for about 20 seconds, then powers off. I've pulled


Most of these problems are caused by a faulty mode switch. If the mode switch has gone off of it's true position, then the electronics might well think it's in rewind mode even in the off position. Sometimes it's just the switch that is faulty, but sometimes damage to the mechanism has thrown off the switch.

Video tapes only paly for about 2 seconds then stops


The heads need cleaning and/or the tapes are old and dirtying up the playing heads.
Run a wet tape head cleaner through an see if this improves.

Rewind button is stuck


It can definitely be fixed but let's try one thing before forking over few bucks to technician. Assuming it is a SLR camera, When you rewind, hold the rewind knob pushed in and try it. If you have a point and shoot, let me know which model. I'll be ready to assist when you respond either way.-James
