You have probably blown the fuse which means sending to a service centre for repairs.

Sharp VL-Z7U cassette door will not shut - with or without tape.

Always use the camcorder with the battery and power button on.

Does the cassette compartment close without the tape ? If yes. then we have hope.

Now insert the tape and press to close the compartment as usual. Does it close or reject every time ?
If it rejects, then very slightly nudge the three tiny figures of the mechanism where the two wheels of the tape fit.
Now the tape will sit inside the compartment and lower itself.

If it still ejects, then very slightly press the base metal (where the tape rests once loaded but) without the tape. This is the largest metal piece visible closest to the hinge and door.

The tape will load properly now.

You could face error DEW or 007. Both are known errors.
DEW is really due to moisture in the air. Try on hot dry place.
for 007 error, you would need to carefully clear with one index figure the reading head. Remember all parts of the camcorder are delicate and need carefull handling.

Never use any tools, fluids, fabric or tissue.

Let me know if this solves.

I am looking for USB driver for Windows 7 and the method to extract from tape as I do not have Firewire (Ieee 1394) any more in my laptop and desktop.

I believe this means that there is condensation in the tape mechanism.

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.

Tape compartment Samsung SC-D953 problems

I have the same problem and it is very ennoying! But, there is a solution. This SAMSUNG camcoder model has a sensor that reads when the compartment it is pressed down. A solution to your problem(wich was also mine a few weeks ago) is to press down the cam's compartment until you hear a noise, and the...held it like this for 1-2 seconds. Then the camera will pull it inside. Try it and leave a message if problem is solved.
Thank you!
