Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR818 Camcorder

Open Question

A beeping noise goes off, when i put in a tape, like it starts beeping then ejects it out, and the screen shows "remove casset", ive already tried the dry video head cleaners, but it ejects that tape back out too, what do i do? My sony CCD-TR400 does the same thing, but not all the time. It will buzz with a spinning sound, then beep, then eject the tape. No teardrop, just a flashing upward pointing arrow on the screen.

The problem is usually caused by no drum rotation. Have it serviced.

SOURCE: NO PLAYBACK

According to Sony support, you should follow these next steps: 1. Ensure the batteries are fully charged or the AC power adapter is connected. 2. Remove any media (tape, Memory StickĀ®, DVD, etc.) from the camcorder. 3. Properly reinsert the media. 4. Ensure the media compartment is properly closed. 5. If the problem continues, try inserting different media. In addition according to your post it is very likely that you busted the tape mechanism. In this case only a certified technician can help you. I hope you work it out

SOURCE: Eject is flashing with fast beeps. Won't eject tape or open compartment.

sad to say that the problem of your camera is the timing gear is already damage....it need to disassembly the camera to fix the timing gear....go to the qualified service center for fixing or replacing the timing gear..

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.

SOURCE: Tape wont play or eject.

i just read about this c:31:22 problem while looking for a solution to another problem I am having. Someone suggested removing the battery, switching the camera to the "camera" setting, and then turn it off, put the batter back in and it should work. Good luck.

My dsr-45 no eject cassete


Hi,
please follow this :-Remove the case, remove the mechanism cover, cut the mangled tape in pieces and take it out gently - you are going to have to rotate some part to untangle most of it. With all the tape that's out of the cassette removed from the mechanism put the unit back together and eject it.

i hope this will be helpfull to you .
goodluck.......

Tape will not eject / Battery full


while the eject process is trying to happen remove the battery and replace it. keep initiating the eject process and removing the battery and it should finally eject. If you attempt to use the camera again put in a new tape so you don't lose a tape that contains footage you may want to save.

Will not close while tape is in ejecter,alarm beeps and screen says (remove cassete), but will however close without tape??? canon mv830i digital camcorder...


Several things could be happening...the tape is backwards, upside down, inverted or just wrong type since it closes without it. Next check to see on the inside if something is jamming the tape. While it closes without a tape there could be something that jams when a tape is inserted.

Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital, remove the cassete message


This is a tape transport problem and is expensive to fix. Unless you know a cheap tech, it's time for a new one. Be patient loading and unloading tapes. This is usually what causes this problem. The Yellow warning sticker is REALLY important. Another important item is to always use the same brand of tape because switching tapes causes a gummy build-up the makes tapes get caught in the machine.

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.

Error message E4 and stuck tape


Yes with care. Simply remove the cover and with care unwrap the tape. If you must break the tape - but make sure all residual tape is cleanly removed. Re assemble and put a tape head cleaner through- following the instructions.

Does the unit say anything about moisture? This sounds like a moisture fault. Leave the unit open for a day in a dry area and try it. If it is moisture and everything is OK this should solve your problem. If it doesn't solve your problem you could have a bad moisture detector. This is a small square metal looking device near the video drum with two wires hooked to it. It's job is to protect the camcorder and keep it from damaging tapes when moisture is present in the unit. The simplist way to verify if it is defective is to jump a wire across the two connections and try the unit. If it works this is your problem and you will need it replaced. A good repair shop should be able to do it for about $50 US. Two websites which give free estimates are http://www.videotech.com and http://www.camcorderrepair.com Good luck.
