Question about Sony DSR-11 DV / Mini DV VCR
I recently put a dvcam tape into the deck after using it with the miniDV option on another job. The deck is now in a mode where it will not shut itself off, eject the tape, or react to any of the buttons I push. Instead, it jumps between trying to play the tape and trying to rewind it continuously. Is there anything I can try to do or is there a simple way to open up the machine to get the tape out and see if that solves the problem?
There is screws on the unit when the unit goes into rewind mode disconnect from mains and unscrew unit first check to see if the screws are scurity type haveng a hex or star shape on them if either then take to video and tv repair shop and explain that you need to remove a tape from unit you may have to pay for a small fee for it to be removed this part is all i can give but if you can remove screws yourself then locate the motor for tape ejet and load and manualy wind till tape is removed good luck

Yes,first remove the power to the unit, pop the top lid off, (4 screws) then u will see a controle board secured on top, there are 2 screswes on teh side, becareful not to break any of the wires connected to the board when sliding out of the way. below this board is where the tape is located. You should notice a number of visable plastic grears onthe side of the loading mechanisim. there reall is only one u need to be concerned with, It is Located on the left side of the motor, motor is located to the rear left side of the mechanisim. there u will see a long a FLAT gear, just to the left of the motor, there is a small amount of play in this gear, push this geer twords the rear of the unit and hold it there, reinsert the powersupply and press eject, this will tigger the eject mechanism and pop the tape out.
