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.

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------

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."
