Question about Sony Video Cameras
Model/SN : CCD-
After many years of loyal service, traveling with me to many continents, my camcorder malfunctioned. The cassette tape door opened and locked in the open position. Removal of the battery makes no difference—it is apparently a mechanical locking. The side-door[window] actuates back and forth normally. But the rising cassette carry assembly remains fixed in the open position. Do I now have to dispose of my otherwise perfectly operating travel companion?
Any recommendations would be sincerely appreciated.

Sorry I can't directly help with your problem but I advise you the repair cost at a repair shop would probably cost nearly as much as a replacement...
Unless you have a handy friend who works cheaply you won't lose anything by repairing it yourself. You will probably find some useful how-to videos to help you on Youtube.

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

Your camera ccd-TRV328 has defect with ccd imager that's why not giving picture in camera / recording mode. This part (ccd imager) needs to be replaced and good news Sony will replace it free of cost.
Please click Sony Official Website for details.

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

SOURCE: i have a sony ccd trv 138 hi8
it seams that it has a usb streaming /connection feature..so all you need its a driver and a cable to connect it to a computer ..
all I found its a driver for hi8 camcorders but it seams that is for windows 2000 ...anyway some drivers work on xp just fine even if they were build for 2K ...its worth a try ...if not ..you can get a alder cheap computer and keep it with 2000 ( if we dont find the xp driver ) ...just for downloading and operating this camcorder...
