Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I've tried all the troubleshooting steps... turned it off, removed battery, turned on with eject button pressed, pressed the reset button, left the tape compartment open for an hour..... nothing seems to work. any help would be appreciated.. thanks
I have managed to eject my tape by powering 4.5 V the little motor which drives the eject mechanism.
Problem is that you have to dismantle half the camera to do this (be very careful with the flexy wires they are fragile) and I wouldnt' do it without the service manual.

If you turned on the power or inserted the battery while pressing the ejct on the camcorder then you have a serious mechanical control curcuit fault or a power supply thats bad inside the camcorder. Probably those small surface mounted pan caps that ALWAYS go bad. It time to take the unint to a pro to be checked unless you have all mthe speacial tools and extenstion cables to work on this camera. Good Luck
