Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
When I open the tape "hatch" -- the internal mechanism does not automatically open up to receive the tape. I've tried it both with the power on and the power off. I'm borrowing this camera and was given a crash course on it today.
Problem resolved. I apparently did not have the "hatch" door open completely. I tried it again, heard a click and the mechanism lifted to accept the tape.

Tips for a great answer:
This can be caused by several problems including a defective eject switch in the cameras internal circuitry, a bad motor or a faulty rotary mode switch and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
