Hi

Please look at a reset button/tape removal button on the left/right side of the unit.If you are unable to find them then open the side and back screws of the unit to eject it manually.

    Please see this link for resetting the unit---



    Sony DCR Reset



    Most of the time when a cassette won't eject from a camcorder it is because the video tape has gotten wrapped around the head drum, drive roller or some other mechanical part.



    Ther will be a roller on the righthand side toward the lens it is a wide roller with black rubber on it. Inside this roller you will find a small white plastic tube that inserts to hold the roller steady. Check if it is cracked. A quick tweak would be to take a tube from a compressed air can and cut it to the correct size and replace the broken plastic one.



    Also feel the gears check for the left one, it would be stuck and would not move. After pushing it and turning it with a small amount of force it will loosen up.

My Sony DCR-TRV240 camcorder won't eject the tape. The power and all camera features work, but it won't eject a tape.


I'm sorry that the Camcorder is not ejecting tape. Please follow the troubleshooting steps provided below and check the operation:

1. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged. 2. Perform Reset by following steps:

1. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD panel of the camcorder. 2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds. 3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

3. Perform a manual power reset by following the steps:

1. Turn off the camcorder. 2. Disconnect AC power adapter. 3. Remove the battery pack. 4. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds. 5. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position. 6. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack. 7. Turn on the camcorder.

If the issue persists after following all the steps service will be required. You can find repair information and initiate service at:

I have a Sony DCR-TRV 340 Digital Camcorder. Self Diagnosis display with code: C:32:11 Followed steps in manual, but still showinng the code. What does the C:32:11 mean?


means its a stuck tape tray or stuck open. But it actually can be one of a few parts on the tape tray. Sony actually wont give out information on this error cause there are so many failures. There are many people however that figured out how to fix this. Its actually a very big problem with sonys and ranges in 300-500$usd to get fixed by sony unless under warranty.
i believe these are the parts that you would need
Here's the part #39;s for mode gear & whole chassis,
Mode gear : X20244611
$4.80
Whole Chassis excluding Drum : A1437006A
$54
Sony Parts: 800-488-7669
and here is a video on someone repairing there sony camera with the same problem.
if you need further assistance i will be here to help you, thank you and good luck.

Hi,
You camera has problem of bad CCD Imager and this part will be replaced.
DCR-TRV460E is PAL model and I assume you are in UK.

Taking photo's requiring the flash.


the flash housing unit is stucked!!  Try to do this: use around 3 inches sticky tapes like scotch tape or masking tape, stick the 1/3 part on the flash housing unit , now set the release button while pulling the tape upward, do not apply too much force, you are trying to help the housing to go upward not to detached it, ha ha..( the sticky tape is safe to use, dont worry). It always work but in case it does not work from your unit try this dangerous one, using small metal and pressing the release button try to open the door ( yes, like opening the stucked door!), its dangerous that yo might detached the housing from the unit, so be carefull.
