Question about Video Cameras
My sony camcorder hasn't shut since last year. I have absolutely no idea why it won't close or what is causing it not to close. Hopefully you guys know what to do. Thanks

I took mine apart and there's a little switch on the backside of the camera that controls the opening of the cassette mechanism. It is meant to be tripped by the opening of the side of the cassette case and then triggers the ejection of the tape. The switch is probably just stuck. Taking this apart isn't too difficult - I think about 4 screws.

Try removing the battery for a few seconds, and then re-inserting. This seems to reset something on my DCR-TRV20, and it starts closing properly.

Sony HDR models that the carriage won't close is caused by the mode switch on the chassis. The mode switch controls the cameras function for loading and loading of the cassette. Basically tells the electronics what is happening. This becomes dirty and causes the chassis not to complete it's cycle on eject. Thus staying open. It has no idea where the mechanism is at this time. It can be cleaned and realigned but the chassis needs to be removed to get at it. Definitely a service depot repair. Sorry!
