Try this:
1. make sure the tape is not loose - turn one end to tighten
2. make sure the head is clean - try a qtip or slightly damp swap long enough to reach and clean the head (silver drum but please be extra careful not to use to much force there is a litte haed that reads the tape and if you get any strands caught on here it will be hard to get out) the head will spin but clean and hold as much as possible because the head is harder to clean while spinning and the head is in between that has a very small slot to see it but it is close to the gapped seem of the haed
3. if you can fwd and rewind tape
4. make sure nothing is stuck in like and torn tape pieces


now sometime tapes of 120m are really not recommended because of the load of tape amd ost have a tension sensor 60m is usually the best recommended

Tape jammed. Eject jammed.


Sometimes the tape is stuck on the head . Open the door and try to pry off the tape from the head with a thin instrument . Power up the unit and usually it spits out the cass. This worked for me many times.

Sony handycam dcr-hc38 tape door wont close. fault code c:32:11


Try this if you are tech savy, if not you may want to take it to a person to have it fixed or send it off to sony.

1. unplug camcorder AC cord
2. remove fat battery from back of camcorder
3. remove slim battery from under the LCD (it's the size of a nickle coin)
4. wait 2 minutes
5. plug AC into the camcorder
6. flip the camcorder into VTR mode
7. tape should automatically eject

When I put my tape in the camcorder and close the metal door, the tape does not go down. but when empty, the tape holder do go down.


Hi, My Sony DCR-HC32 handycam's tape mechanism is giving me some problem. It ejects and the tape deck opens up properly but after putting a tape and closing it, the tape deck does not go in. I tried with or without tape but it doesn't go in. It is still open.
Can you please suggest how it could be fixed?
Thanks,
Pramod

Handycam DCR-DVD108 DVD Camcorder: if I get a request to format disc upon re-insertio...


Well this was mostly the main reason the pro film makes like myself decided never to go towards DVD (disk) movie cameras and always stay with tapes like the digital 8 sort.
With disk cameras you are never ever going to be sure you are catching anything, as the disk will spin happy in the camera, but as 1000's have already found your disk will be bland if you put the disk back in the camera next time.
Did you format your disk at start of first use? sore are pre-formated, lots are not and wont record unless they are.
Good luck my friend hope you get it sorted out ok?

I have a Sony DCR-TRV250 Digital Handycam Camcorder. Currently a tape is stuck in it and the camcorder won't eject it. The tape unit comes out but won't open.


I got the tape to eject by removing the battery from the camcorder, putting it back on so that the tape would go back inside the camera. Then I had the tape eject again. Several times the tape would not be ejected but I repeated my steps until the camera released the tape.

When i try to use my camcorder there's a flashing light with the eject symbol and it wont record or let me use the video


Flashing eject sign error appears when camcorder got problem in its mechanism, please put another tape and check.
Remove battery from camcorder for couple of minutes, put battery back and try.
Also observe does tape reels turns reverse and forward when tape loaded in mechanism.
If problem still exist, qualified camera tech will fix it because it is not user level repair.

Thank for that qestion,
At this point, if you are a lay-man or person you need to eject the camcorder and aloud it open and put under sun light for an hour. If its do the same, take it to a technicain.
but if you are a technicain, dismantle the camcorder and put the machinusm under hot tempreture for 20minute. then mount it back and your camcorder will be fine.
I have done this time and again and it has never fail me.
I hope you will smile.

Sony handycam DCR-HC18E tape stuck won't come out


Unfortunately this is a problem only fixed with an expert repair man. Camcorders are just to complex to try getting a tape out.
