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.

How do I remove a jammed cassette from a Sony camcorder?

if you left it without work for a long term, the loading motor may be struck, if so a contact cleaner spray is helpful to start the motor, spry it very carefully on the grove of the loading motor, don't allow the liquid to go on the head, give power, (do not power switch ON), just push the eject button,try several times, then will be OK, if the motor failed, must replace it.

Sony camera cassette door stuck

Possible this can be a mechanical fault as the cassette body got struck because there was some stickers on the sides or if there was a loose link.
If so you can remove the top cover and gently tap on the cassetter as the cam is powered to allow the tape to wind back so as to eject.
If there is no unloading of the tape back to the cassette, then it can be failure of the loading drive, failure in the servo section in which case you will need to remove the covers and check the loadin IC, the power and the board.

Hi8 won't eject cassette

There is a broken plastic part inside the cassette and needs to be replaced. Mostly due to cassette tape improper position and camera jam (tape jam).

Can not eject tape

I had same problem, while transferring media from TRV-16 to DVD, tape would not play, then would not eject. This after transferring several tapes to DVD. I tried several things over the last couple months that did not work before finally getting it open today. It did me no good to remove several of the outer panels that were each held by two "tiny" phillips head screws each. Went to the internet, found your post, also found a post that referred me back to SONY page which follows.......

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.
IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.
"NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required."

After I did this, I could hear a whirring sound when I hit eject, although nothing came out. While the whirring was going on, I pulled up and out with constant pressure and the cassette holder opened. The tape had jammed apparently as the little protective plastic tape guard was jammed partially open when I pulled the cassette out. Good Luck and don't be afraid to put a little pressure on the door if you can hear the door trying to open.

Now I turn to recovering the tape, but having grown up with cassette decks, don't believe it will be a problem.

Cassette stuck

If battery is fully charged and unit still will not open, try removing the tape door and see if there is tape wrapped around capstan or ther parts. If you cannot find anything apparent, take unit to qualified pro tech
