Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD200 DVD Camcorder
Hi, While I was trying to take a photo, suddenly the picture is frozen and the camera started to try to read the disc with no success. Though I turned off the camera, it is still open and trying to open the cover. I could not open the cover, and turn off the camera with normal ways. What should I do? Thanks for your help in advance. Regards, Serap
I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

Maybe not a remedy for everyone but, I tapped all around the lense with a soft wood ruler stopping to turn the camera off and on periodically. I noticed a lot of sand, we live at the beach, came loose. It took me a little while to do this as I was being caeful not to damage anything else on the camera. Finally, the cap just opened and has ever since. Good luck.
