Re: port wont close
You write so little it's hard to tell what your problem is...
Won't the tape door close?
could you have the hinges reversed or something? Can you push them back the right way and then try and close it?
Try loading a fully charged battery into it, or plug it into the wall AC.
If you have more info please post again.

find the motor and belt that controls the loading of the tape.
put the vcr on its side and put the tape in watch closely on the pulley mechanism. try and give that pulley wheel a few more turns in the same direction the motors trying to turn it after it stops. sounds like the tapes not sitting all the way down. if you can get it to play then you need a belt there if not continue to watch all the operations hopefully eventually you will see why it wont go.
It seems like your carriage unit needs servicing.. basically the gears that load the tape and move the tape wheels have become worn.. You can attempt to repair this your self at the risk of rendering it useless. YOu can call a service center and let them service it or you can take it in to a profession technician and let him rebuild the gear to gear ratio for you ..
If any other experts have other suggestions you can try, please by all means try them, take mine as a last resort..
Always use the camcorder with the battery and power button on.
Does the cassette compartment close without the tape ? If yes. then we have hope.
Now insert the tape and press to close the compartment as usual. Does it close or reject every time ? If it rejects, then very slightly nudge the three tiny figures of the mechanism where the two wheels of the tape fit. Now the tape will sit inside the compartment and lower itself.
If it still ejects, then very slightly press the base metal (where the tape rests once loaded but) without the tape. This is the largest metal piece visible closest to the hinge and door.
The tape will load properly now.
You could face error DEW or 007. Both are known errors. DEW is really due to moisture in the air. Try on hot dry place. for 007 error, you would need to carefully clear with one index figure the reading head. Remember all parts of the camcorder are delicate and need carefull handling.
Never use any tools, fluids, fabric or tissue.
Let me know if this solves.
I am looking for USB driver for Windows 7 and the method to extract from tape as I do not have Firewire (Ieee 1394) any more in my laptop and desktop.
the tape coming back out and unravels the tape means the loading mechanism is the problem----when a tape goes in it loads the tape down, then it pulls the tape out of the cassette and puts it up against the drum with the video heads-----many of these are belt driven and a bad belt or belts will cause this----it is called the loading and or transport mechanism.......when it fails the arms come back but the tape does not get rewound back into the cassette so it mangles it when the cassette door on the tape closes----most likely a belt or the drive idler which also rewinds and fast forwards the tape.
The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver. This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends. Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.
I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick
HI, this is a mechanism fault beep you are hearing. the mechanism and load motor is damaged. you will need to send this unit to the Handy cam repair depot for this repair. you will need a new load motor and loading dock mechanism as well.
I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.
