I have also experienced this problem.

1. Turn off the camcorder
2.Take out the battery pack.

What I did next was by accident, but worked.
3.I closed the compartment, without a tape inside
4. I inserted the battery back in
5.I turned it on, and it worked perfectly

How do I load the tape


I see your picture of a cassette player. Guess you are referring to that. (tapes also come in reel-to-reel, and 8-track). Just push the "EJECT" button (power may need to be applied to some units for the eject button to work). The tape slot will open. Insert tape with exposed tape on the "head" side of the opening, usually the heads are on the bottom of the slot.. You can't put it in any other way and have the door close. The "door" that opens has guides for you to slide the tape into. The side you want to listen to should face you. Either manually close the tape compartment or push the close button (depending on model). If the door doesn't close, you put it in upside down. Push play and enjoy.

How do you close the door when there is no tape in the recorder


If it is like my Samsung Mini-DV, it will go in by itself if you close the top part as if you had just put a tape in. There is an outer door, then a kind of drawer that slides out on its own power, then the tape compartment pops up. If you are putting a tape in, you then push that pop-up part down into the powered drawer. It's like pinching the two halves together. You can do the same thing without the tape.There will be a pause, then the powered drawer will go back into the camera and you close the outer door by hand.

Possibly your model is different.

I need assistance changng the black ink cartridge on my MFC 24OC brother


  1. I have this printer myself.
  2. Facing the printer, look on the far right corner.
  3. You will see a little door below the scanner. This is where the single black and three color cartridges reside.
  4. Open the door and see the cartridges.
  5. The black will be the one that is to the far left in this compartment.
  6. Each cartridge is secured by a blue vertical "lever"
  7. Push on the blue lever and it should click and pop out slightly.
  8. With your index finger, pull down on the lever and the cartridge should pop out even further.
  9. Let the blue lever drop down and grasp the cartridge and pull toward you. The cartridge should come out.
  10. Remove the cover and tape from the new cartridge and put in the black cartridge slot until seated in the slot.
  11. Gently lift the blue lever until it clicks
  12. Close the door and the printer will begin to clean itself automatically.

OPEN error stays on when disc inserted


There is a pressure switch that gets pushed down when the disc door is closed. Ether the arm on the switch is busted, the switch is bad or a busted wire to the switch.

Sub-zero 500 series refrigerator door wont stay closed


If Your Refrigerator's Freezer Door Pops Open When You Close the Fresh Food Door... If a 'top-freezer' refrigerator's freezer door pops open when the larger fresh food door's closed, it's actually a good thing. That tells us the seals are in great shape, sealing well.
Some freezer door 'pop' is unavoidable bc the bottom door's so much larger than the top one and the hydraulic effect of compressing all that air kicks in. The two compartments share the same air via a duct between them, and that compressed air rushes up into the freezer compartment and can 'pop' the door.
To improve the situation, apply a few drops of oil (sewing machine oil or 'three in one' - NOT WD-40) to each freezer door hinge pin. (Even better: if you can, pull the doors and coat the hinge pins with petroleum jelly). This will help the freezer door swing back closed by itself. The freezer door usually stays ajar because it's binding a bit, and that's usually caused by it's swinging 'dry', with no lubrication.
It’s also a good idea to ‘kick’ the habit of letting the refrig door close hard.

TAPE COMPARTMENT KEEPS POPPING OPEN


I Had The Same Issue And Fixed It :o) I Have A Sony Handycam CCD F-730A 8mm. I put the tape in and close it but it would not load the tape down. It just pop back out. If I took the tape out, it works perfectly and would loaded the tape doc down and close.

1st: I unscrewed and removed the door to the tape. Where the tape can be seen. 2 screws hold it down. Without the tape inside. I Saw a Clear Small Plastic in the inside of the camera where the tape sits on each side. On Both Sides, Left and Right are clear plastic like sensors. They look Like Glass and are small.

2nd: I Cleaned them both with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. It Worked. The tape loaded and worked nicely.

It was strange. If i touched one of the small glass like sensors. the mechanism the loede the tape would not work. When The Glass sensor was blocked by the tape or just by my finger in front of it, it would not load. Very strange.

Tape compartment wont close and camera wont charge


You have probably blown the fuse which means sending to a service centre for repairs.

Tape door wont close


I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
