Canon ZR60 won't eject the tape.

by Acreekfreak / July 29, 2005 2:29 AM PDT

My 2 year old Canon ZR60 won't eject the tape. When I open the door, the carriage comes out but doesn't pop open. When I turn the camera off, then back on, the carriage slides back into the camera.

Is there a trick? Can I service this myself? Reccomendations on where to have it serviced?

Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem

Canon wants 161.00 to repair or 150.00 exchange for a refurb replacement ZR900. It's a known proble with the CCI chip. but they won't budge on the repair cost.

thats surprising. i bought a cam off ebay and wanted a remote. i called direct to canon for it and they informed me if i had a bad screen theyd replace it for free cause it was a known problem. and this was on a 4 year old model with no warranty

The screen problem is not their problem, probably SONY's and SONY agreed to replace FOC. The chip which control the cassette mechanism is probably Canon's own, and they see no reason to repair it FOC ...probably because although "known", it is not "wide"....
