Inside your camera there is mechanical movement when you zoom. There is a motor that turns a wheel is connected to a belt with teeth that goes to your lens. this moves the lens in and out. If a screw on this assembly is loose then anything of that sort can happen. You to have the lens assembly opened professionally then check if the belt and motor are still running properly and if the assembly is not loose. You can tighten the screws or if something is cracked you can use superglue to join it together. Using it like that will make the situation worse and it might stop working.

This is a fault in the loading section and so unless the camcorder is pulled out it is not possible to get a clear look into the circuits and mechanism.
It needs to be checked if there is voltage on the loading section from the loading IC and also if the motor loading mechanism is in order. Sometimes the gears, belt or pulley can be faulty.
If not the loading driver IC can be faulty . finally check on the eject microswitch.
Attempt only if you are equipped.

You will need an Analogue to Digital Converter box to get the signal to a computer.
Use the RCA video and audio connectors (yellow, red, white) to go from camera to A/D Converter and then a firewire cable from the A/D Converter to the computer assuming the computer has a firewire port.
Firewire is also caleed IEEE1394 or iLink.

your sony ccd-trv 108 will transfer videos(stream) to a computer using firewire connection. install the supplied software or use any program compatible for streaming like windows movie maker. use a firewire cable. check your computer for a firewire port(port with IEEE symbol) make sure that the tape is totally rewounded then press the record button on windows movie maker as the same time as you play the video from the camcorder. (its basically playing the entire video in order for windows movie maker to record it.

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The pinch roller is held in place by a pressure connector and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

C:31:22 T reel fault. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.

I had one of these before I bought my new Hi 8 digital camera, I would be keen to ask what problem have you got that needs this job doing? I know that the small black screws on the top and back allow the outer case to be removed, but you will find that most of the things that go wrong are more electric items rather than mec side of things, so most type of problems the man in the street could not repair anyway.
