SOURCE: Eject is flashing with fast beeps. Won't eject tape or open compartment.

sad to say that the problem of your camera is the timing gear is already need to disassembly the camera to fix the timing gear....go to the qualified service center for fixing or replacing the timing gear..

Defective mechanism,
a stucked mechanism is

something goes wrong with
the camera. You need

Sony dcr-trv350 tape wont close

there is a risk of hardware damage.make sure you dont force the tape into the cassette compartment to avoid damage to the unit or's what you can do.
1.remove the tape from the compartment.
2.ensure proper type and size of tape is used.
3.ensure no packaging material or foreign material inside the compartment.
4.if attempting to record, make sure cassette tape rec/save switch is set to rec position.
5.reinsert the tape, make sure it's properly inserted.
6.if still won't close or tape ejected again,remove tape.
7.reinsert a diff tape.
8.attempt to close compartment.
9.if issue unresolved, press the tiny reset button while cam is powered on (located in the panel where the lcd screen goes to,just below all the other buttons). you may also do a power reset procedure: remove batt, remove ac adaptor,set power switch to vcr, leave the cam without power for at least a minute, switch power back to off, reinsert ac adaptor/batt and turn cam on, attempt to close tape compartment.

if issue persists, service would be needed. hope this helps.thanks:)

I can't get tape out of cam corder

Let me know the error message. Go down further on the error message check for numeric code. If you see ''02". I'm sorry you need a qualified personnel to do the job. if it shows "03" keep the cassette door open(5 sec or more and make sure to put power on it) and wait until it open.If it ejected, try with another tape, it could be your tape causes problem. Good luck

I have a jvc gr-sxm26u camcorder and it has two problems... the tape door will not open when the eject button is pushed to the left. 2nd problem. the screen indicates that there is a problem labeled as "...

E01 Mechanism has not fully loaded up to the stop position

E-01, E-02, E-05, or E-06 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code which is to inform a technician which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem. Try the following steps:

1) Remove power source for 1 minute. 2) Reattach power source. 3) Try operating the camera.

The indication E-03 or E-04 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code. This is to inform an independent JVC authorized service center which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem.

The E-03 or E-04 code relates to one of the tape spindles not turning. This could be the result of too much slack on the video tape. If E-03 or E- 04 is displayed it may be possible to correct the problem by removing the tape slack. In order to do this follow these steps:

1) Remove power source for 1 minute.
2) Reattach power source.
4) Repeat above steps until tape ejects.
5) Tighten and insert a new tape."

A common E01 problem with the JVC is caused by electrically conductive residues on the very end of the connector strip which connects the small front circuit panel to the main circuit panel (this residue can only be seen under a microscope). Symptoms are, the mechanism remains closed or the cassette holder will not latch down and remains permanently raised. Basically the micro cannot read the mechanism position data. The connector strip needs to be taken out & carefully cleaned with alcohol.

If all else fails then its a trip to JVC service and a biil of between $`100 and $250 depending on what the problem is. My last E01 was a motor change and cost $180 but the cam has been fine ever since but next cam will be a Canon..

C:32:11 message flashes, cassette eject won't work, camera doesn't work

Just had this problem myself... called Sony. Here is what I did to fix this:

1. Turn off power
2. Open the LCD Display
3. Press "Reset" with paperclip/pen
4. Unplug ANY wires connected to the camcorder
5. Eject battery
6. Plug in DC charger
7. Power on
8. Attempt to eject tape
9. At this point, the metal tape holder comes out but refuses to open... slightly "close" the portion of the camcorder that has the button to eject the tape, and then open it fully again (you'll hear a click, this signals the device that the 'hatch' is open and to eject).
10. The metal door *should* pop out and allow you to withdraw the tape.

I've tried 4 different cassettes and about 2 seconds after hitting play, I get the error every time... my solution: Not going to try to play my tapes on the camcorder anymore... will find another player to play Hi8 MP cassettes. Unknown if able to record to tape as of yet.

1. Remove the two small screws from the tape door face. I show the entire carriage removed.
2. Look for the small metal peg on the left side, about 1” down from the top of the tape carriage.
3. Using something small push down on the peg to release the tape door.
4. Important Note: Most likely the tape will still be wrapped around the video head and held there by two capstans, (one on each side of the head)
5. Carefully pull out the tape not damage it any more than necessary. Keep in mind this might cause the player to “eat” the tape at this area so smooth the tape here with your fingers (nothing metal) and wind the tape to begin playing past this area if possible.
It seems this is a common problem with this unit; Canon should have put a better motor here in this critical area.
Good luck, hope this helps everyone,
