Error code 09-028

Servo and tape path system error.
0 : Mode cannot be identified, or mode identification is
not necessary.
2 : Threading motor/FG/sensor
8 : Abnormal current detected.

If it’s not just a simple tape jam, then you have a problem with the loading mechanism. The best solution is to take the deck to a service center.

It does not eject the tape,it gives out error c3211

Reel of the cassette must be stuck inside. open the top cover and have a look inside. release the reel if it is tangled up inside. Reset the switch at the bottom of the frot pannel and try to eject the cassette. It will slove your problem. If it is not then you must consult the nearby sony service centre.
