The camcorder most likely is not detecting the tape, you have a bad sensor and these sensors all come on a flex type board and the flex board is mounted on the chassis surface. This will mean that the entire mechanism will meed to be diassembled, and is a very big and costly job. My opinion is that this repair will run you abut 250 to 300 bucks and this camcorder is not worth this as new camcorders are under 200 bucks. Good Luck

DCR TRV140E is a Digital8 camera
CCD TRV87E is a Hi8 camera,
(Hi8 is an analog format)
the tapes are the same size, wont help, the recording systems are not compatible
send them to a lab service ?maybe if there are only a few
or ebay a Hi8 camera and transcode them yourself
its not a solution, at least it clarifies the problem

I had the same problem with a Sony FX410, not much different than a FX310. With my camera all i had to do was to push the top down with a gentle push, it would engage and play and record normal. Don't force it hard, just a light pressure to help the cradle down. Most of these Sony cameras are crappy when it comes to loading the tape, most if not all the Sony's i've had end up with this problem, no matter what model you have. I've taken my camera competely apart and could not find the problem for not pulling down the tape, don't know if it can be a sensor or what, i never could find anything broken or loose or misalign, i oiled all the joints and moving parts with a light dab of thin oil, it worked fine except for that darn cradle not pulling down the tape.
Another thing that causes this is when the tape is to tight? In other words the tape should have a slight **** in it, i once ran into this big problem when the tape would not load and the camera kept ejecting it over and over. It was when i tried a new tape that i noticed how well it loaded yet the other tape wouldn't load. So i pulled out the tape and poked that little hole on the back right below the left hand pick up reel, i then turned the reel with my finger and gave it some slack, not much just enough to see the tape a little loose. I then reloaded the tape and it worked like a charm, seems that if the tape if to tight the camera won't accept it as the reels need to adjust back and forth for a few seconds, its that wacky sound you hear when you load a tape, seems like it has to adjust the tention inside the take up reels. Hope this might help you some?
