Question about Sony DCR-DVD91 DVD Camcorder
Hi All, Great site just signed up! I'm looking for some help not too sure if you can but here it goes. My friends camcorder (DVD91E) got spashed with sea water but has now recovered and appears to be working but the door won't open. I also have the same camera and have had a look at the mechanism which consists of two overlap hooks that lock the door but these are concealed with the door shut so I can not access them to 'persuade' them to open. When the door button is pressed the camera make a series of beeps which is normal but the actual mechanical action does not kick in to release the 'hooks'. Can anyone give me any ideas of what to try to get the door open? Many Thanks Ryan
the capstan motor of your camera is stuck up....check the capstan motor is there is some debris insert at the sensor...if nothing you find check also the bushing at the upper part of the motor....

Try removing the battery for a few seconds, and then re-inserting. This seems to reset something on my DCR-TRV20, and it starts closing properly.

I recently attached my Sony DCR-SR200E to the computer, and accidentally formated it. Now when i turn on the camera, it says HDD Format Error

SOURCE: loading tapes
Sony HDR models that the carriage won't close is caused by the mode switch on the chassis. The mode switch controls the cameras function for loading and loading of the cassette. Basically tells the electronics what is happening. This becomes dirty and causes the chassis not to complete it's cycle on eject. Thus staying open. It has no idea where the mechanism is at this time. It can be cleaned and realigned but the chassis needs to be removed to get at it. Definitely a service depot repair. Sorry!
