DCR-HC28 The tape door won't open.

  • chriselsonin Oct 18, 2008

    Interestingly enough, I repaired on my own after sony couldn't help. There was a tape inside, but the door wouldn't open. So as a desperate last resort, I unscrewed the 2 small screws on the door. I had no idea what would happen, or even what I would do after that, but I took out the 2 screws and Wha la!



    The door opened!! i put the scews back in, and it works great! Don't have any idea what happened or why, but perhaps the door was a little cockeyed, and this loosed it.

The C32:11 error is a motor movement error. This means that a motor or gear is NOT moving when it should. As a sfety feature, this will prevent a tape from getting loaded and getting damaged. This unit requires repair. This is not typically a DIY repair as opening these up is tricky and if not done properly can cause additional damage. Check for local labor rates as well as the fixed repair cost from Sony directly. The fixed rpair cost from Sony will also include any parts that are required.

Hope this helps,

This can be due to failure of the loading motor mechanism . Since you are hearing the clicking sound , it is possible that the motor is working to the command from the processor but there is failure in the mechanical drive., This can be due to pulley slipping , gear failure or belt failure.
Unless the camera is opened to remove the covers and get access to the mechanism , the exact fault cannot be confirmed.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

The camcorder has detected an issue that may require a power reset.
To power reset,
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
