Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV36 Camcorder
Made weird noise when i entered the tape then wouldn't eject. tape is stuck inside. can this be fixed? seems like a motor problem
Hai Problem in mechanism. If the tape does not loaded completely, the message will show "Reattach the power source" Please check mechanism. Raghavendra, M/s.prathiksha Electronics

a stucked mechanism is
present. camcorders are
smart. it can detect error
and shut down itself for
safety. earlier models
domino the defect if
the user is not quick
enough to react when
something goes wrong with
the camera. You need
professional service to

SOURCE: Ejection Door won't Close
I had the same problem with my 360X.
I took the camera apart and found two screws loose that hold the tape carrier to the rest of the chassis. The unfortunate thing is that I had to pretty much disassemble the entire camera to get to those two screws. It's working again. I'm assuming those two loose screws were the problem.

Don't think this is a complete solution, but it might help. Try checking out the buttons on the camera. I've got one of those same cameras but my problem is the ribbon cable in the cassette carrier broke and I'm on the hunt for a new one, and a service manual. By the way, how about emailing a copy of the service manual to me at email@example.com. Thanks. I might be able to help further with a copy of that.

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.
