Hello, exact same problem here, closes fine when no tape inserted, but with a tape, the camera won't close, just keeps ejecting the tape.
Another problem that I encountered is that the camera will not take pictures anymore.
When I press the button, it beeps, but there appears a green dot on the screen,
My handbook tells me, when this dot appears on the screen, this means he camera will not take a picture, it however doesn't tell me how to solve the problem.

Same problem, same frustration. Just flashing, won't open to insert tape, Battery relatively new. Is there any way to get it to open to put in tape? I hate this technology, not along far enough.

I had a similar problem with an older panasonic camera. Mybe you have tried this, but opening the door and pushing up on the tape. Push in and use enough force but don't try to break it. Try pressing different spots. Sooner or later the motor might start moving it up. Just a though, it worked for me.

Sony HDR models that the carriage won't close is caused by the mode switch on the chassis. The mode switch controls the cameras function for loading and loading of the cassette. Basically tells the electronics what is happening. This becomes dirty and causes the chassis not to complete it's cycle on eject. Thus staying open. It has no idea where the mechanism is at this time. It can be cleaned and realigned but the chassis needs to be removed to get at it. Definitely a service depot repair. Sorry!
