There use to be a degausing magnet made for just that. It is shaped like an iron and it is an ac electro magnet that turned on and off just to make tyhe magnetic poles swap and this Magnetic flux that can not be seen would jumble up the magnetic tape info by arbitray misaligning them on a molecular structured level. In turn messing up the information like scribbling on a writen document...

Sony dcr-hc46 casette compartment is not closing on its own and is stuck


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.

My Sony DCR-HC46 Handycam sat for about a year. Now even with new batteries, it refuses to close the tape mechanism door, with or without a tape inserted. Any ideas?


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. Yours sounds like a defective rotoary mode switch.This 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.

How do I erase a tape without rerecording on my sony DCR-TRV140


on this model sony it does not have an erase feature. I have called sony and confirmed this. The feature that would do that is called flying erase heads. So your option would be to either record over the tape or buy a player than can erase but a eraser is 300$usd-400$usd which really isnt cost effective just to erase a tape.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

How do i get movies off sony handycam dcrhc46 tapes to computer or DVD forediting


You will need software like Videowave etc, plus a Firewire cable from camera to PC, the rest is auto once your camera is in play-back mode.
Good luck.

Dear sir my sony Handycam model DCR-TRV285E,


Look at the rear end of the tape cass and if the red tag is over the hole this prevents movies being erased, just push tag over to expose the hole and your tape will (should) be okay and work again.
Be aware that if you pressed this tag over to stop recording, are you sure nothing is on tape you want to keep?

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks
