Oftentimes on a camera of this age the motor for the tape transport will go out. I've had it happen on two older models. Your only option if this happens on every tape is to send it in for repair to Canon. It can be spendy though.

reading other threads here the soloution that works, yes for real, slap it on the tape side (closed) a few times then try to reload the tape, if it doesn't work the first time, close it and try slaping a few more times. I had to do it a few times but it does work.

Examine the laptop along the edges and look for a **** about 2cm long (about 1 inch). As you look around the edges (left, right, front) try reading the markings.You might see something like SD. Access to the port may be covered with a dummy card which you press with the finger to make it pop out to open the port.
