The tape carraige doesn't pop up when ejecting and doesn't close when pushing down

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. The spindles turn & it makes a running sound, the little tape door will close but then pop back open. Any thoughts on what this could be?

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.


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 ... Digital Cameras

My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this started when i put in a cassette in which the tape has somehow become crunched. There was some pushing involved and the camera auto-ejected teh tape a couple of time before i realized that the tape inside was crunched. I then straightened the tape by pulling it partly out and rewinding it manual

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)

Since I bought my HDR-HC1E in December 2005 I enjoyed really my camera, but since a few years now I have experienced so many times a warning about 'moist condensation' then I have to 'eject tape'. This just doesn't work for a long time. It is very tedious and I only found out by accident a way to overcome this problem is by ejecting the mini DV cassette (but keep the mini DV tape in the cassette holder), switching off the camera, remove the battery. Close the cassette holder and then slide in th

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

My olumpus XD-Picture Card is stuck in my laptop. It is the kind you pop in, and then press slightly to eject. It does not respond to being slightly pressed (pushed) to eject. I have been unable to dislodge it with tweezers, and it is a snug fit so tilting the computer does not work (gravity is useless since it is not loose).


It's fixed. I took a key-chain-size Kroger card, cut it so that it could fit into the slot under the card, put a piece of tape so that the sticky side sort of grabbed the card, took the tweezers and pushed down slightly on the top of the card while ... Olympus D-535 Zoom / C370 Zoom Digital Camera

Sorry to tell you that this is a common problem. You may be lucky in that the usual case is that the flash gets stuck in the down position and is unusable.

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
