    Hello everybody,
    I have a problem with my Grundig camcorder LC 535 (8mm). It is impossible to
    load a cassette. When i press 'Eject', the tape room raises at half height,
    then I ear a sound of something rotating: I must force by hand to help the
    mechanism to raise completely, so the tape door can open. After inserting a
    cassette, and then closing the tape door, I ear the drum spinning very fast
    for about 10 sec. and then the cassette is rejected.
    As the repair by Grundig is not worth, I wonder if i am able to repair it.
    If I open the camcorder, could I resolve the problem?
    Thank you very much.
  2. Maybe, but I doubt it. Camcorders are difficult to work on. Google for
    specific information, by the way.
  3. Forcing it open may have damaged it more.
    It could be an electronic problem like a bad sensor, switch, or ribbon
    Or it could be a mechanical problem like a stripped gear, broken lever,
    bad belt(s).
    Or any combination of those faults.
