Have you tried cleaning the camera with a cleaning cassette.

You can buy one wherever they sell cameras and you just run it in the machine once or twice and it should start working.

Please let me know if you need any additional help

Thank you for using Fixya and Good luck

Cassette does not eject

Either the tape is jamed round sound head, or the door is stuck with somthing like a handle of the case on side of camera, but sounds like tape stuck, run film backward a little (not forward) as more tape will get stuck in forward motion.

Cassette will not eject

Two things come to mind. either the film has adheared it self to the video drum if the set had some condension or the mech guide arm on the right take up side has come off and jammed. I've seen both problems. You will have to take it all apart unplug the loading motor and manual extract the tape. Normal about a $100 repair at my shop. But this is sight unseen. Larry's Electronics

Sony Handycam CCD-TR64 cassette door won't close

Common problem with this mechanism. In order to fix the problem you will have to replace part called CHASSIS LS. Expensive repair, probably not worth the effort.
