Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV530 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony TRV530 has cassette holder stuck half way out

I was getting a C32:30 error, tried opening cassette door to reseat cassette. Cassette holder came part way out and stopped. It won't go back in, nor will it pop up and open as is normal. Is there a release somewhere so I can get the tape out? Can I get it back in? Removing and then replacing battery or partially closing the door makes it try - a little motor sound, a jiggle, but no further motion. I've tried various "smacking" solutions too, but to no avail. Help!

Thats an interruption of the ejection process, either you push it, you were on low battery, the energy was interrupted or you leave the camera in a car and th heat/cold affects it. Try to cheat/reset the camera system: Remove the clock cell, remove the battery or ac/cord at the same time you push the eject button once. Wait for an hour. Place the clock battery. Connect the AC/Charger cord or the battery (it MUST be completely charged). The camera will reset, check out and complete the ejection.

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.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.
