SOURCE: I have a Sony HVR Z1U camera that has been working

It could be as simple as the battery contacts in the camcorder being slightly oxidized. Clean them with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol to ensure they're making contact. When I accidentally cleaned the mode sensor in a vcr, it messed it up for about a day before it started working again, so I'm wondering if somehow this effected your camcorder. It shouldn't, but with a wet cleaner, I suppose it could.
Do any old tapes play? If they don't, there can be a door sensor that's dusty or not making contact. Did the cleaning tape spring the door to some degree? Just brainstorming here, as I'm not sure what's going on. If a head broke, that could be detected and shutting down the machine- inspect the head with a magnifier.
Couldn't find this problem on the web, so hope something here helps. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa.

Sony HVR-Z1U problem inserting mini DV tape: door won't open all the way, will not close back either


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed 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.
