Sony DVD91E Door Jam

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

SOURCE: Door locked open

Tool: We cut a piece a wire about 10 inches long from a wire clothes hanger. On one end we bent 1/2 inch of the wire in a 90 degree angle with needle nose pliers. On the other end of wire we put another bend at least three inches.(this end will be your handle end) Process of using homemade tool to release latch: Make sure washing machine is on a wash cycle. Use flash light to locate latch in the locking catch. Insert the small bend of the tool into the locking catch. Then hook onto the latch and pull out --apply a small amount of pressure -- about three lbs of pressure) Then at the same time you are pulling, press in on the door release button (the little white button above the latch hole where you now have the wire inserted). As your are pulling with little pressure on the latch, hold the little white button in and press the start /stop button. You should hear the door lock. Let machine start working. (about ten seconds) Now push start/stop button again and you should hear door lock release. Your lock catch should give away. This worked for us.

SOURCE: Door lock stuck

If the mechanism is jammed, you might have to remove or loosen the entire front panel to reach back to the back side of the lock and work on it.

SOURCE: my camcorder tape door won't close

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.

SOURCE: loading tapes

I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

The swing out screen is messed up and it happend with my old camera also


Messed up??? what with Jam? toffy? Candy Floss? or broken by being heavy fisted? not sure but if it is the latter then you are going to find filming is quite a costly hobby as repairs like this you are looking at lots of money my friend, maybe you should stick to filming with a less plastic type camera like the Sony Hi 8 digital type, made for men by men.

Discs will not play back on dvd


What DVD's are you using +R/RW -R/RW some formats may not work especially on non-branded media some DVD players wont even play CD-R but will play some CD-RW of the correct brand.

I suggest that you try your finalized DVD in your PC then create an image using ImageBurn then burn the image onto a branded media and try again. Most firmware on DVD burners are very forgiving and will support a wider range of manufacturers and formats.

Hope this helps, you might want to look on your DVD players website for updated firmware you will need a blank CD and create a update disc using your computer.
