SOURCE: Blown Sony HDR-HC7E fuse or board?

There are internal fuses yes, but they are surface mounted ones and not a DIY repair. There are protection diodes internally as well. If the adapter was not the correct one, it is possible that it popped the diodes and fuse.

You can buy the service manual from Sony directly for a cost.

Hope this helps,
Dan

SOURCE: the tape door wont close

Error code 32:11 indicates a problem in the cameras tape transport sestem.This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Cassette deck will not close


Deck assy will need to be repaired or replaced. The only other thing that you can try (before taking it somewhere) is to unplug the camcorder from any type of power source, leave it unplugged for about 10 minutes, and try again. Also, make sure that your tape is not damaged in any way. www.austintelstarservices.com

My sony handycam dcr-hc26 door won't close. error C:32:11


Hi,
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Thanks.

Loading tapes


I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

Error code C:32:20


My best solution, is to pull all power sources form the camera for 24 hours. If this does not work, then take the small screws surrounding the Tape housing, in order to try and get the tape out. Best of luck dude ;)

Cant record


C32 error codes are usually cassette or tape transport related. Can you eject the tape? Try inserting a new tape to see if the fault is with the tape itself.

If this doesn't work, I suggest that you take your camera to a service centre.
