A similar thing happened to me - I took it to panasonic service centre to fix and unbelievably the problem was that the HAND STRAP was quite tight (I have small hands and set it snug) and prevented the door from openeing just another milimetre more, and thus caused the carriage to 'jam'. Loosening the hand strap and opening the door allowed the tape carriage to move properly again. This was a great relief (although I still had to replace the carriage mechanism a few months later.....due to reset button message)

Eject the tape on Hitachi VT-FX695. It stays on for about 45 seconds and will not eject and then powers off.


hi,
the door mechanism is may be gripped because of a small kick...
did you try to open the door with a full charged battery and with the wall plug connected too ? help it with a toothpick or the corner of a credit card...
if this doesn't work, it may be the motor that is dead, do you ear any little noise when asking the ejection ? if yes, it is the mechanic, if not, it is the motor or the motor driver that is dead.
cheers,
mich

Tape is stuck


First take out the battery. Then start unscrewing the outside panels to take it apart. Basically any screw you find, take off. The easiest way not to loose them is by sticking them into the side of a box. After you get the camera panels off, you should be able to carefully get inside and dislodge anything that may be in the way. Once you are able to dislodge the cord or whatever is causing this problem. Try inserting the battery and ejecting the tape. Let me know if you are having any trouble with this or have any other questions and I would be glad to help.

Good luck

Eject mechanism issue.


The estimate depends on the extent of the damage... if it is just a matter of reallignment I would estimate $50-100 at most shops. But based on your description, it sounds more likely that parts of the transport are irrepairably bent or broken and will need replacing, which would put the estimate around $200-350.

Why do I get the error code C:32:11 or C:31:42?


Does it try to eject the tape? Try a gentle help on that. The tape may have gotten snarled in the camera.

My tape does not completely eject, stays flush with machine then pulls it back in. it never comes complelely out to grasp.


Does the tape door open? Mine would not eject because the door did not open. I removed the door & it works OK without it.

SONY TC-WR550z dual tape deck eats tape and doors won't open I hadn't used this unit in 5 year (it's 13 or 14 years old), and before it worked fine. I went to use it again last month (MJ "Thriller" tape!)...


I don't know anything about the "eats tapes". You can take out your tape fairly easily thought. All you need to do is
unscrew screws on the left and right side of unit
remove the cover
use a flat head screw driver to gently push down on a white lever on the side of the drive mechanism while pushing the eject button

Can not eject tape


I had same problem, while transferring media from TRV-16 to DVD, tape would not play, then would not eject. This after transferring several tapes to DVD. I tried several things over the last couple months that did not work before finally getting it open today. It did me no good to remove several of the outer panels that were each held by two "tiny" phillips head screws each. Went to the internet, found your post, also found a post that referred me back to SONY page which follows.......

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.
IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.
"NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required."

After I did this, I could hear a whirring sound when I hit eject, although nothing came out. While the whirring was going on, I pulled up and out with constant pressure and the cassette holder opened. The tape had jammed apparently as the little protective plastic tape guard was jammed partially open when I pulled the cassette out. Good Luck and don't be afraid to put a little pressure on the door if you can hear the door trying to open.

Now I turn to recovering the tape, but having grown up with cassette decks, don't believe it will be a problem.

Gs36 tape door doesnt open


In case anybody read this....     I have a GS-36 that would not eject the tape. I removed all the screws from the bottom and pulled the bottom plate off. Then I fidgeted with the mechanism near the eject button towards the front of the camera.  In my case it had just become stuck and needed to be gently pried open.    Tested it a bunch of times with tape - seems to be o.k.!

"Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open


I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

Tape rack stayed open


I just experienced the same problem, but it took me 10 minutes to get it working again. When you look inside the tape rack, you see on the left side in the middle a little mechanical arm which you can press down for about 1cm when you release it again the rack opens completely Good luck Robert
