CCD-TRV308 - TAPE DOOR WON'T OPEN

Hubby's used it a couple times and has given problems with a piece inside that seems to come out, but that's a whole different issue.

 

We can't get the tape that's in there out - tape deck door won't open - does anyone know of what to try to get it open??

 

THANKS!

Depends where the tape is located if it's still wrapped around the head i would recommend taking it in if it's inside the cassette you can have to take the door off and see if it pops out.
Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.

Tape door won't open or close to release tape

1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com
- if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open.
Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

Has error


It's a supply reel fault. I kid you not, the cure is to give it a REASONABLY FORCEFUL open-handed slap on the tape side. it may take a couple of tries but it works about 95% of the time.

Sony has a recall on some of these ccd imager problems. Contact Sony to see if your model applies, but it sounds like an imager problem on your pal format camcorder. Larry

Sony Hi8 CCD trv308 NTSC making noise during recording that is audible on playback. Sounds like some moving parts related to turning the tape are not moving as smoothly as they should. Is there anyone...


I had this problem with one of these otherwise very cool cams that I inherited. Something was rubbing on the case of the cassette making a usually faint but audible grinding noise. It is hard to see unless you push the tiny lever on the side of the cassette and flip up the plastic flap that protects the tape. There was a small visible gray grind mark on the center of the case. Now when I buy a new tape I flip open the cassette and carefully scrape away enough plastic on the center of the cassette where it rubs (you can run it a bit and it will grind and show you where) so there is clearance. It worked!!

CANNOT EJECT TAPE


Thankyou. I do have the problem solved for now. I found a section about solutions in your web page. Several readers had the same problem. I was about to use a hammer on it but some of your readers came up with idea to slap the camera a couple of times on both sides and by golly it opened up. I was taught to handle sensitive items like the camera with care and to avoid jaring the item, but, this time I was lucky. we will see.

You have stated the problem yourself - 'I rarely use it'. The electronic and mechanical components within need regular use to stop them failing.

CCD-TRV308 Recording issuses


When was the last time you "cleaned" the heads? Use a good commercial head cleaning tape. They have both "Wet" and "Dry" types. I prefer the "wet" over the dry. I think it does a better job but they are hard to find sometimes.
you can also do it manually with "foam" swabs and "methanol1.gif". Alcohol works but the methanol leaves less residue behind.

If that doesn't solve the problem the next step would be to take it to a repair shop for cleaning and re-alignment.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
