I have a slack tape in our DVCPRO deck with error code 55 (tape unload failure-duh). I can see the tape partially out of the cassette and was wondering if there is a procedure to manually retract and eject the tape. I have a suspicion the underlying problem is a bad reel motor. Many thanks for any advice.

I don't have the manual here, but usually these things have a place in the mechanism that you can manually drive the loader using a screwdriver, possibly with a hex head. It might look like the top of a worm gear, but I'm only guressing. Because of the gearing, it may take a long time of cranking before you see a result. IF you can get the lid off to reach the mechanism, you can possibly spot it by eye.

Okay, Mark. Your tip was what I was looking for. A tiny red socket... a lot of turning... the tape is out. A little edge damage, but it was at the tail, so I think I'm good.
Now if it was a digital file with a little edge damage... the whole shoot would be gone!!
Many thanks!

Robert, post a picture here and we'll try to find it together.
