Camera won't accept tape...

First, yellow indicator blinking in middle of screen... looks something like a teardrop inside a box. Second, to specify more, the number blinking in upper right-hand corner says C:21:00... Any help?

Have the same problem and it is fixed! I laughed when I first read this but it does work! Take off your battery from the back of the camera, turn it over and give it a nice firm wack. Put battery back in and it WILL get rid of your error and work. I've tried the hair dryer before and it has worked but this time for me it did not.. It truly works... Hope your as happy as I was when it worked....


Good luck..

Bob

How to fix Jvc GR-D239E safemode 06?

Safemode 06 on JVC camcorders usually indicates a problem with the tape transport mechanism. It could be a mechanical issue or an electrical issue. It's possible that the black rubber you found inside the camera was a part of the tape transport mechanism that came loose or broke off. It's also possible that there is some debris or dirt stuck in the tape transport mechanism, preventing it from functioning properly.
One thing you can try is to clean the tape transport mechanism with a soft brush or compressed air. Be careful not to touch any of the delicate parts inside the camera. You can also try using a different tape to see if the problem is with the tape itself.
If cleaning the tape transport mechanism and using a different tape doesn't solve the problem, it may be necessary to take the camera to a professional for repair. They will be able to diagnose the issue more accurately and determine if any parts need to be replaced.

What does the teardrop in a square yellow symbol mean? It wont take any tapes

You posted in the wrong category but that sounds like a condensation warning. Leave the camera open indoors and allow it to warm up and dry. Keeping the tape door open will speed things up. Don't subject the camera to rapid temperature changes like warm house to cold outdoors.

Red light blinking won't accept tape

If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

I have flashing yellow looks like teardrop in yellow box. Top right corner flashing c:2100. tape won't go back in after ejecting.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I placed a sony digital8/Hi8 tape in the camera and attempted to record but only got a blinking yellow underscored triangle in the middle of the screen and a blinking code; C32:00 in the upper right corner...

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error C 32:00 is caused due to bad Gear assembly, to resolve this issue with the battery &cassette removed try whack on the underside, if after doing this still the issue is not resolved then you'll have to get the Gear assembly replaced. To remove the tape thats stuck you'll have to remove the two screws that hold the cover on the tape holder. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Cannon zr100 digital video camera tape compartment will not retract and tells you to remove tape,, also tried other tapes.. What could be my problem?

This is caused by problems with the mechanism. There should be an indicator on the LCD screen when this happens. If the indicator shows a teardrop, it means the unit thinks it has moisture (dew sensor).
The most likely fault is a defective capstan motor, the motor that moves the tape through the camera. Time for a Canon service center.

We own a Sony handy cam model CCD-TRV37 and the tape will not come out. When pressing the eject button a little yellow arrow blinks upward on the screen and a code C:32:20 blinks in the upper right corner....

Error C:32:20 indicates that the take up reel of the cassette that winds the tape into the video cassette is not taking up the tape fast enough thus causing slacking when unloading.
Remove the battery or power cable, connect, and perform operations from the beginning.
if this fails take the camera to a repairman to remove the tape manually.

MY CAMERA SCREEN IS BLACK TAKES PICTURES STILL BUT DOES NOT SHOW TIL I DOWNLOAD PICTURES

You need to press the second button on the right hand side. There is is playback button on the top then the next button is the display (it has a grey box inside of the outlined box) and then the arrow keys. Hit the second button (or middle button how ever you wanna look at it) until you see your screen. Hope that fixed your problem

Error Message Reconect Power even if power is connected

It sounds like the tape door is out of alignment, causing stress on the tape and the inside mechanical system.  Requires a visit to the service shop.
