My Camcoder says eject the cassette

My camcorder was working fine. But after recording , when I tried to convert to CD, I came to know that the recorded picture is striped and dotted. When I checked manual, it said head cleaning problem. I tried Panasonic head cleaning problem, but as soon as I insert the tape, it says eject the cassette.

Help me out...
I tried inserted a new tape too, it says eject the cassette..

Your help is really appreciated

    Sharp camcorders have problems with
    - DEW
    - head cleaning
    Camcorders have sensitive sensors, put in factory, but no easy solutions.
    DEW will not go after few hours (as indicated in manual)
    even under hot bulb. One friend suggests ladies hair dryer in Hot???

    Sharp head cleaners not available any where. Sharp should offer these accessories or withdraw the products.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette


Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

Hi,
The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
Thanks for using fixya.

Sony ccd trv218e, recording & playing back does'nt work


I had that problem also and I found that using smaller tapes helped. I was using the 120 minute tapes, I think they may be too heavy.

Tape will not eject


If you open the eject thingy like normal then look for a small white plastic tap. its located right underneath the "start/stop" text you see on the back end of the camera (where the record-button is). You´ll need something like a small screwdriver or similar. Press it and and the tape ejects like normal. Worked for me. Saved me the repair bill :)

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.

Cannon ZR 60 camcoder Cassette copartment does not open


Loading unit problem is a common mechanical problem in camcorders. To remedy the problem, trained tech need to disassemble the mechanical system around the loading and replace few broken gears (plastics) and adjust it. Repair cost may run close to half of the new camcorder. If you really got to repair this camera for some sentimental reason or for special needs otherwise better to invest the repair charge into a new camcorder.
