Question about Sony HVR-A1E HDV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I have an AlE, it ejected my last tape then wouldn't go back down, so it is stuck with the tape unit up and in eject tape out mode (no error on screen just empty tape logo). The 'push' door works but there is no noise to indicate it is going to retract, then after five secs the door ejects outwards again and the rest hasn't moved.Any ideas how to get it back down?

SOURCE: CANNOT EJECT TAPE
Thankyou. I do have the problem solved for now. I found a section about solutions in your web page. Several readers had the same problem. I was about to use a hammer on it but some of your readers came up with idea to slap the camera a couple of times on both sides and by golly it opened up. I was taught to handle sensitive items like the camera with care and to avoid jaring the item, but, this time I was lucky. we will see.

If you remove the power while the basket is halfway up, you should be able to remove the door. Then look to see if the reels are turning when you try to elect the tape. The error code you are getting indicates the reels are not turning for some reason. You can ssist the reels turning as the tape is ejected if you have a small plastic pick or a toothpick into the reels to assist the reels turning and tehn you may be able to remove the tape.
