You didnt replace the STK's? You must replace the convergance IC's or you will continue to have this problem.

SOURCE: Sony Video 8 Handycam CCD-FX411tape problem

I have a handy can and had trouble with the cage closing with a tape installed. I found the most unlikely problem the rotation of the drun was slowing up and then siezed eventually.
I took it apart abd it was not a good idea to go any farther into the cage to extract the drum. The drum goes for over 250 dollars the price of half of the camera. Well I figure what the heck I experimented. I soaked the hole cage and drum in Denatured alcohol and unn siezed it. then I blew it out with the air compressor and really made the head spin. Then as I put the unit back together I found i was not careful with the audio ribon cable lost sound but the unit did work for silent movies. It was junk anyways over 250 dollar 3 head drum.

SOURCE: Sony xl 5200 door close safety switch

not sure if this helps---some of these sets had a problem---the three blinks usually means door not closed properly--remove door and look carefully at it--if it is warped from the heat---the plastic peg on the back of it will not engage the lever(it is a safety switch that prevents the set from working if the door is removed) look behind the door where the plastic peg is--if it is your problem you just have to use something not metal to move the lever and then while in place turn the set on---if it comes on normal--order a new door---they are about 5 dollars plus shipping--if you need direct help email me with the exact model number--if this has been helpful give me a vote------

SOURCE: TV not working after replacing lamp

yes, the door has to engage a switch and if it doesn't the tv will not come on it usually has a 3 blink error if this is the problem. Is your red light flashing in a 3 blink series?

Common problem with this mechanism. In order to fix the problem you will have to replace part called CHASSIS LS. Expensive repair, probably not worth the effort.

Testimonial: "Thanks. We ended up getting a new camcorder. That Handycam was as old as I am (18 years), so it was time for an upgrade anyway."

Jammed by putting tape in upside down


Take off the battery on the camcorder. Insert the battery and at the SAME time, push the power and the eject to see if this resets the camcorder so it will eject. If this does not work, I'm afraid the unit will need to be taken apart and removed manual. Good Luck

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com
- if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open.
Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

My sony trv37 cassette door won't close.


If this condition only occurs with as cassette inserted to load this may indicate a condition where the cylinder which holds the video heads is not spinning up when requested by the system control microprocessor.
If the door will not latch closed with/or without a cassette inserted this can indicated a mis-timed condition of the tape loading mechanism.
Try closing the door without a cassette loaded whilst the unit is powered from its AC Adaptor - under certain conditions this may allow the mechanism to reset and may allow the door to then close.
I trust that this information is of assistance! RHN

Tape door won't shut and message C:31:40


You need a qualifier Tech trained from Sony to repair your CAM
Your problem is that the cassette compartment it had 2 sensor and a few contact to detect what kind of tape you are insert like normal, metal or Digital 8 or Hi 8 or 8 Standar or cleaning tape so the system control would auto adjust according the tape
Those contact conducted by flexible cable now that FC may be cut or the sensor faulty when you insert the tape the CAM detected 1 side of the tape so it juded like some thing wrong with the tape then it will not load the tape in because it designed to protect the tape and protect mechanism
Without the tape no problem because the sensor or contact at the right corner of CAM did not detect any thing
If You want to know how it detect what kind of the tape, just turn the D8 tape up side down, you can see the holes on the left and right corner where is the tab for save and record
You need to replace 1 chassis LS assembly it cost about $250 to $350 if you are in AUSTRALIA
I hope that give you some ideas
