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.

Broken tape. Cassette will not eject. How can I correct?


With power off, you will have to disassemble the player to get access to the tape mechanism. You will find tape is preventing the cassette door from closing to allow ejection. Remove damaged tape. Apply power and press EJECT. Turn power off and inspect the mechanism to be sure all tape debris has been removed, then reassemble the player.

What do I need to do in order to get the back door on the passenger side to close? A tech from AAA said I needed a spring for the door latch?


if it won`t close look at the door latch mechanism. there should be two u shaped claws that close around the door striker plate pin, sometimes these get closed before the door is closed causing the door not to close and stay closed. if they are closed(claws) pull the door handle to open the door and take something and push the claws out(open) then close the door.

1990 lexus ls400 cassette player will not read or play my cassetes. i put in my cassettes but my front tape flap doesn't close and it automatically switches back to the radio.


The player has to seize the cassette as it is inserted and seat it in the correct position to be played. Sometimes the manual eject linkage becomes defective or misadjusted, preventing the cassette from seating correctly. The eject button may depress fully without causing ejection or it may depress but not cause ejection.

Drivers door will not latch closed


It appears that the door is not closing far enough for the latch to move to the second position in it's movement. ie on not closing the door properly you will see that it is latched but not closed . Push it harder and it closes properly. Lubricate the latch mechanism and you may have to adjust the catch position to allow the lock to go to the fully locked position POssible rubbers to cold and stiff to allow the door to close easily

Door wont close all the way it causes wind noise inside the car how do i fix this??


In the door jamb, loosten the 2 star screws that hold the piece that the latch catches and move it closer to the center of the car. This will make the door close a little bit farther for the latch to engage.

Sony Handycam CCD-TR64 cassette door won't close


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.

Tape problem, Elura 100


I called the factory and they said to send it in for evaluation.  While packing it up, I dropped it and lo and behold it started working.   Even though it started working, I decided to send it in to the factory and they found something "loose" inside and repaired it at no charge.

Self-eject


Hi there, I think I can offer some info, though it's not good news.
This cassette ejection is controled by a small motor in the bottom of the cassette carriage (see picture). Unfortunatly whether the problem be this cheap little motor or a switch that controls it, taking it to a repair shop would cost much more than this little camcorder is worth.8477600.jpg Sorry for the bad news, I have the same camera as you can see it's taken apart now. I posted another solution to get the tape out if you come to that problem.

Hope this helps

Cassette door stuck closed


Firstly: do not think about forcing the cassette door! Look inside the unit. You need to hand rotate the capstan flywheel a bit,( a large-ish metal disc attached to the motor via a rubber drive belt.)That should release the powered deck mechanism and allow ejection. Then buy a new drive belt , so that problem does not recurr. Good Luck
