SOURCE: Ejection Door won't Close
I had the same problem with my 360X.
I took the camera apart and found two screws loose that hold the tape carrier to the rest of the chassis. The unfortunate thing is that I had to pretty much disassemble the entire camera to get to those two screws. It's working again. I'm assuming those two loose screws were the problem.

SOURCE: 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.
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.

The real reason this is happening is the spinning heads can not equalise, either with a preset speed or match the speed of the recorded media and so it ejects the tape as being incompatible.
DO NOT SMACK IT.
As I have done this in frustration and to just get the camera working, the mechanism inside these Sony cameras is so delicate and on such a soft-metal base plate, that the plate bends and is likely to be the cause of the problem in the first place (a small knock in the bag etc - you know where it says on the tape cover to 'press here' and in the instructions it says "do not press elsewhere on the cover" thats why, it's delicate).
Before you damage that camera and loose the ability to adjust/correct the speed of the heads all together, I would strongly suggest you take it in for repairs to a very reputable technician.
NOTE:: If your speed is wrong now and it is fixed, all that you have taped on the wrong speed may not be playable when you get it back - backup/copy all your compact (8mm) tapes to your computer/DVD/VHS anything.
You rated one off-the-cuff response - I hope you find it good to rate mine and I'd really like to here how you went. Please post a comment here so we know you're good.
