Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right diagnosis in answer to your question.

 

Do the tape cassettes come out without a problem?

Is the problem rather that you cannot get the camera to take in a new cassette or an inserted cassette?

Does any error show on the camcorder's indicators (or, screen) ?
