Sony handycam dcr-hc38 tape door wont close. fault code c:32:11


Try this if you are tech savy, if not you may want to take it to a person to have it fixed or send it off to sony.

1. unplug camcorder AC cord
2. remove fat battery from back of camcorder
3. remove slim battery from under the LCD (it's the size of a nickle coin)
4. wait 2 minutes
5. plug AC into the camcorder
6. flip the camcorder into VTR mode
7. tape should automatically eject

I can not get the cassette compartment door to close.



Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

My tape wont close,the tape won't go down for the door to close


This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these.

Hi....


The dcr-hc38 is a minidv camcorder that usea a minidv tape. There is no "delete" on tape camcorders. You simply record over the tape. Or if you want to get rid of a recorded section on the tape you dont want, find out the exact minutes/seconds display of the section you dont want and just record over the section with the lens cap on.  To fully edit the tape, you will need to upload to your computer and use the editing software that came with your camcorder.

Cassette doesn't load and move down into machine


I had the same problem. With the camera on, keep taking the battery off and putting it back on. Start to close the door and then open it. Eventually you should hear it try to move. Keep doing it and it should move down all the way.
