Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD106 Camcorder

Open Question

I have a broken catch on the disc cover of my DCR-DVD106E Handycam, meaning that I have to use an elastic band to keep it closed! Where can I get a new disc cover? I've searched various sites, but can't find one!

SOURCE: Disk cover open, accidentally. Turn on power again

Haha, yes finally what a pOS!, But I got it!!

So I got to thinking well the sensor or something be messed up a bit. I found that the cover a very slight amount of play.

So hell , I put a C clamp on it. I started to record. Sweet, it worked!!! The cover was stuck so the sensor wasn't tripping.

Well that worked, but I didn;t want a c clamp on my camera all the time, so I had some Automotive Amazing Goop,

I lined the cover edges with the sealent and let it dry. Now when I close it , it stays closed and records without a problem.

The only thing is its tuff to open, I use a skrew driver, or small nail.

But it was unusable before, and at least I can use it.

Good luck.

SOURCE: my sony handycam dcr-hc26 door won't close

Hi,
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Error Message: Disk cover open, accidentally. Turn on power again.

When you open the door you will see 2 metal tabs that are sensors to that are pushed by 2 plastic tabs on the door that push on the metal tabs to let the camera know the door is shut. For whatever reason these tabs are not pushed up enough and I triggered them by sticking something in there to make contact. I used the end of a toothpick for now. May be primative but it works for now and I may look for a method to make it permanant but at least my camera works now

SOURCE: Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV not recognized by Windows 7

win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

The battery door catch has broken


On most cameras you can hold the catch closed with an elastic band around the body of the camera, if necessary with a small square of cardboard over the hatch itself, or several bands, if the hatch actually holds the batteries in place. At least you will be able to use the camera, even if it does look a bit untidy!

WHAT DOES CODE C:31:23 MEAN? -


It means there is a mechanical malfunction inside the DVD drive and is preventing you do do anything further. Check the laser lens for dirt - it'll prevent the laser to focus, spin the disc, and read. Listen for disc motion after you insert the disc and close the door.

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?

Sony handycam dcr dvd105 disc door won't open


While I do not have specific knowledge of your camera the DVD door should have a small hole in which you insert a small object - a paper clip works, and push gently. This is the norm on CD/DVD drives and releases an internal catch. Good luck.
