If the tape is wrapped around a head or caught in a pinch roller, then you may be able to remove it with your pen. Underneath the tape is a small hole. Insert a pen or similar object into the hole. This will let you disengage the spindles in the tape. You have to hold the pen in the hole to keep them disengaged. You can then pull out the tape cartridge. This will let you see inside and whatever may be holding the tape in. Hope this helps.

Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.

Sony TRV530 has cassette holder stuck half way out


Thats an interruption of the ejection process, either you push it, you were on low battery, the energy was interrupted or you leave the camera in a car and th heat/cold affects it. Try to cheat/reset the camera system: Remove the clock cell, remove the battery or ac/cord at the same time you push the eject button once. Wait for an hour. Place the clock battery. Connect the AC/Charger cord or the battery (it MUST be completely charged). The camera will reset, check out and complete the ejection.

Here is the solution to your problem:  C:31:42 = FG (film guide) fault during normal drum operations. Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning! Hope this helps.
