Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a tape stuck in the Sony CCD V8afu video camera. When I press the "eject" button, the tape disengages from the recording head, rewinds and is ready for the tape carrier to "pop-up." It just does not "pop-up." Any solutions, as the stuck tape holds our childhood memories? Thanks.


Answers :

From your description, it appears that the unload sequence is not completing. There is a small latch that moves to allow the cassette carrier to release. To reach this latch will require some dis-assembly. This is not an unusual failure and should be easily fixable by a repair shop. Can you indicate where you are located? This is not a repair I would recommend for a novice. I will try and locate some pictures to show the latch area.

Hello

\015\012Press the eject button, and as soon as it makes the noise that its trying to eject, try using a flathead screwdriver to gently prize open the cassette holder. A few attempts may be needed. It may simply be stuck on the inside edges and needs some gentle leverage to get it open.

My panasonic pv gs32 camcorder is stuck and the tape won't pop up. I get a "press reset button" message and when I do this I hear it trying to lift up and out, but it doesn't move at all. Are they any steps I can take other than taking the battery out and recharging and trying it again?

Ok, Harold, I have seen the other answers and must inform you that before you can do anything at all, you MUST obtain a Service Manual. Without one, is is nigh on impossible, for a qualified engineer, like me, to repair this unit.\015\012\015\ ... Digital Cameras

I have a SONY mini handycam model DCR-HC52 with 40x optical zoom. It has been working fine until a few days ago. When I insert a new tape the tape holder will not close. You can push the tape sideways into the carrier but the carrier will not descend into the camera. The lcd screen tells me to reconnect the power source. I have tried the camera with the charger cord plugged in and with a fully charged battery with the same results. The minimum repair cost from Sony is over $200 which is over hal

I have a Canon Elura 100 Mini DV Camcorder. Previously there were times when it would not eject a tape until it stubbornly decided to. Now it will not accept a tape.

Can open the tape door, but tape holder mechanism will not pop out. Do not hear anything when I do open tape door. Help...!


Most likely the motor for the tape mechanism is burned out, in which case you will have to take it to a place to have it repaired, in which case it will probably cost more to fix it than to replace the camera. Although if you are using a tape in a ca ... Digital Cameras

Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)
