There are a variety of things that can go wrong. The process of elimination starts by taking the 2 screws out of the cover and removing. While the compartment is open, push the eject button and observe if there is any motion with gears or not. The main cam gear should rotate a few degrees in one direction and then back. If you see no motion at all then you have problems that are going to require real work. Most often when this is the situation, this main gear, which doubles as the mode switch, is broken and this is a sophisticated repair to replace.

I have a Brother label maker, model number pt65. How do I install the tape. I cant get it to feed through. Thank You


1) Remove the back cover by pressing in on the rough
area at the top end of the machine and pulling off the
back cover.

2) If a tape cassette is already installed, pull it straight out
and remove the paper tab from the new tape cassette.
Make sure that the end of the tape in the new cassette
feeds under the tape guides.

3) Insert the tape cassette, making sure that it clicks into place.
Check that the cassette fits properly around the two
metal guides in the cassette compartment.

4) Attach the back cover by inserting the two hooks on the
bottom end of the back cover into the slots on the bottom
end of the machine, then pushing down firmly on
the cover until it snaps into place.
5) Feed the tape by holding down and pressing ,
then cut the tape by pressing in on the tape cutter button.
The amount of tape remaining is visible through the
window in the back of the P-Touch.
When the usable tape is finished, green ribbon appears

Hope this helps

Found this post re: Sony C:31 errors
http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/DisplayComments.php?file=Video%20Camera/Sony/Sony_DCR-TRV18_-_Error_Code.
In a nutshell: - Remove tape and close door - Remove all power supplies (battery and AC) - Smack the bottom of the camera hard with your palm - Reattach power supply, insert tape and try again
This solution has worked for me, but problem usually reappears after a few uses.

The tape carrage wont load the tapes but it will go into the load position without.


I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick

Trunk wont pull shut.


You have a pull down switch that activates the pull down motor for the trunk lid to close. The manufacture of this part supplies this to Ford & General Motors vehicles. You can go to a Cadillac dealership & purchase this part far cheaper than at Ford. I use to work at a GM dearlership & my neighboring Ford dealer would order this part from me for the cost of mine where less than the cost from Ford. Figure those guys out at Ford. No wonder they don't need a goverment bailout
