Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Canon ZR200 camera will not eject the tape. I never had this problem before. Camera has never been dropped but all of a sudden the message to eject tape showed up but it won't do it. After repeated emails to Canon it is evident that they are not going to give me the info to remove the tape myself. They want me to send it in (for a price to be determined after I send it in) or to trade up at a cost. I don't want to do either, just get the tape out of camera. I don't even care if it never work

Does anyone have the help I need to get a service manual for a Canon\015\012ZR200 digital Mini DV video camera. I need help in opening the camera\015\012to get the tape out. It will not eject the tape and I need to get it\015\012out for a customer. By their request I cannot ship this camera with the\015\012tape in it. I don't care about the warranty or if it never runs again,\015\012I just need the tape.

I'm camera tech and will guide you to get tape out.
Please unscrew all screws around camcorder (as you said, you just want tape and do not want camera) and apart its cabinet, unplug LCD flexible wires, take off front cabinet that has mic connections unplug this connector, now unscrew camera lens assembly and unplug 2 flexible wires from main board, unplug viewfinder flexible wire and unscrew it, now take out all these things and here you have main board, now unscrew main board, unplug connectors from mechanism (probably its 4 connectors) and take out main board, here you will see bottom side of mechanism, unscrew it and take it out mechanism from camcorder chassis, now you need 3 or 4.5 volt dc supply ( you can use any mobile charger/ cd player charger/ any charger that has up to 4.5 volt dc output) now connect charger output plus-minus to loading motor terminals that is situated in corner of mechanism near video head, loading motor will rotate and unload the mechanism until tape compartmnet ejects. take out tape.
If tape mechanism does not unload or stuck some where during unloading, unscrew tape compartment and take out mini dvd tape. Be careful the tape do not cut as its loaded on guides and video head and pich roller assembly.
You can email me (good qaulity) snaps of camcorder at [email protected] for further guidance and I will mark necessary parts that requires to be removed.

First of all check out is the battery charged or not.also try connecting the camera directly to the wall power outlet and then try ejecting.if this does not helps then.Turn off the camera.remove the battery and hold the camera tightly in both your hands and shake it vigourlsy for couple of minutes.please do it carefully.and then check out is it ejecting the tape.if still not then,keep the camera on and eject button continuisly pressed then tap the sides of the camera slowly for couple of minutes .if this all does not help then.take a thin knife and insert it slowly in the area where the tape is inserted and press the eject button.donot insert the knife very much in.just oneforth of knife.

I have a JVC GR-DX25EK digital video camera which I have had for several years and never had any problems with. I used it yesterday to video my daughters wedding but when the tape ran out I couldn't remove it from the camera as it won't eject it. This has never happened before and I don't want to damage the tape. Please can someone advise me how to get the tape out of the camera? Michelle Gillingham 19.7.08

When you get errors do a complete rewind or fast forward to the end of the tape in order to pull out tape slack. Then remove battery and tape for a while. If still screwed, then yes, sharply tap (not hard!) on the closed tape door. That may repositi ... JVC Digital Cameras

The cassette cage holding my tape in my Canon ZR65 camcorder will not release the tape. The door is open and the cage tries to move forward or backward (barely) and then stops---won't open up. I dropped my charger for my battery a few days ago---could the battery not be getting enough power to the camera to release the tape? This has never happened before.

You can test the charger using a multimeter (it has +-0.5 volts from voltage written on charger), or go to a local repair shop and have it tested.A more serious problem is if the tape is stuck inside or the release mechanism is broken. In ... Digital Cameras

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?

Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
