    I had this problem in June and as a Hail Mary - I'm not set up to intricate problem solving - I took a few Q-tips, and some isopropyl alcohol, and swabbed around the capstan drive and other parts that hold and guide the tape (you have to reach the Q-tip through the 'cage' which normally holds the tape. [I might add that when the tape doesn't come out, you can do a battery reset by removing the battery and that will allow the removal of the tape most times.]

    I never considered that to be the perfect fix but it got it working again. It suggested that the problem was either a dirty sensor or one of the dozens of tiny parts that have to function perfectly to allow the camcorder to operate.

    The "C" in front of the error message implies that the owner can repair the problem (IF the camcorder isn't misinterpreting sensor data) and elsewhere it was stated that using a headcleaner would solve this problem... but if the camcorder won't play a tape it sure as hell won't run a head cleaner...

    Anyway, two days ago I made the classical mistake. I tried to dix smething that wasn't nroken by using a head cleaner on my camcorder... and you guessed it, the alcohol trick doesn't work,

    So the problem is likely a mechanical problem and my guess would be that it is related to a force being applied to the tape 'cage' when an ejection is in progress. One of the tiny parts gets distorted and that affects the sensors and the tape emchanism.

    Well, over and out.

safety. earlier models
domino the defect if

According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion.
