I had a similar problem with an older panasonic camera. Mybe you have tried this, but opening the door and pushing up on the tape. Push in and use enough force but don't try to break it. Try pressing different spots. Sooner or later the motor might start moving it up. Just a though, it worked for me.

Tape is stuck

First take out the battery. Then start unscrewing the outside panels to take it apart. Basically any screw you find, take off. The easiest way not to loose them is by sticking them into the side of a box. After you get the camera panels off, you should be able to carefully get inside and dislodge anything that may be in the way. Once you are able to dislodge the cord or whatever is causing this problem. Try inserting the battery and ejecting the tape. Let me know if you are having any trouble with this or have any other questions and I would be glad to help.

Good luck

When opening camera to insert tape,tape tray slides out,does not

This is new for a sony camcorder technician. Here is what you should do. There may be a sticky substance holding the side tape door to open then the whole tray will go back down. Using battery, press the eject button when the tray is all the way up, disengage the battery to turn the power off. This way you will have the tape tray at posititon just before the opening of side door. With you finger nudge the door outward to see if it is just got stuck by substance. Using Q-Tip with some "windex" go around the edges of the tray. You can also take the door off by removing two screws. -James. For additional assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Cassette Jam

The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
