Same problem, same frustration. Just flashing, won't open to insert tape, Battery relatively new. Is there any way to get it to open to put in tape? I hate this technology, not along far enough.

SOURCE: I have a Sony CCD-FX410
This is my 3rd try to get a solution. I have a Sony 8mm camcorder,
CCD-FX410 and a head cleaning tape is stuck in it and I can't get it
out. This camera is in EXCELLENT condition. I tried going to Sony's
website and they no longer offer service on it. Both of the other
people who answered this told me to turn power off, unplug cord, turn
on to VTR and wait 15 seconds, then plug cord in again. It didn't work.
After I put the head cleaner in, it wouldn't play and kept trying to
eject. Finally it just started beeping and flashing an icon in the
viewfinder. Manual says to send for repair. Any ideas on what I can do?
Can not get tape ejected. Thank you.
I know CCD-FX410 camcorder was launched in July 1992 and I also know what is the reason of problem in your camcorder and I'm afraid it can not be solved because its an old piece now. Parts are no longer available and problem is leaky electrolytic capacitors on its circuit boards. Time factor is involve here, it is not operational mistake.
I can help you out to eject stuck head cleaner tape in camcorder. If you are looking to bring it back in business then it is not possible because an experienced camera tech can repair it and will charge you more then camcorder worth.
Hit "add a comment" button to assist you in ejecting tape. You need to apart camcorder and should have 4 or 6 volt DC supply in hand.

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks. We ended up getting a new camcorder. That Handycam was as old as I am (18 years), so it was time for an upgrade anyway."
