Disk access door won't close

When I attempt to close the disk access door to my handycam it opens back up and there is a small indicator on my view screen telling me that the door is open. Anyone know what that means.

Something not latching is usually spring related. If you feel like taking it apart you can probably find out what is keeping it from latching.

Tape door won't open or close to release tape


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?

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

Disk cover open, accidentally. Turn on power again


Haha, yes finally what a pOS!, But I got it!!

So I got to thinking well the sensor or something be messed up a bit. I found that the cover a very slight amount of play.

So hell , I put a C clamp on it. I started to record. Sweet, it worked!!! The cover was stuck so the sensor wasn't tripping.

Well that worked, but I didn;t want a c clamp on my camera all the time, so I had some Automotive Amazing Goop,

I lined the cover edges with the sealent and let it dry. Now when I close it , it stays closed and records without a problem.

The only thing is its tuff to open, I use a skrew driver, or small nail.

But it was unusable before, and at least I can use it.

Good luck.

Error Message: Disk cover open, accidentally. Turn on power again.


When you open the door you will see 2 metal tabs that are sensors to that are pushed by 2 plastic tabs on the door that push on the metal tabs to let the camera know the door is shut. For whatever reason these tabs are not pushed up enough and I triggered them by sticking something in there to make contact. I used the end of a toothpick for now. May be primative but it works for now and I may look for a method to make it permanant but at least my camera works now
