Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder
The lid on the camcorder wont open :[ When i try to open the lid, it says 'Preparing to open Cover' .. Then like 20 minutes later it says error, and it continues to stay stuck. Also, it wont turn off. I haven't called the Sony company and the Geek Squad at the Bestbuy we purchased it at hasnt helped at all .. my bloods beginning to boil.
There is no easy solution. Qualified Sony servicers have a service remote that connects to the lanc jack. There are hexadecimal codes supplied in sequence to cause the micro to output a signal to open the door. However, disassembly by a qualified tech can allow mecahnical release as well. I can tell you this is not an a do it yourself fix. This particular model once it is unhappy with a disc will never open, the problem was irradicated in subsequent models. Third party brand discs and discs with surface marring, especially fingerprints, will lock up the works.
