I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TR61. It has worked fine until today. It will not accept a tape. If I close the door without a tape it closes and completely shuts like it is supposed to. But if I put in a tape...

Many times it's a belt slipping. Since the tape isn't pulled into position, it's rewound and the tape ejected. A damaged or mal-adjusted switch could cause this too. The most you can do is blow it out with compressed air to see if that helps. I doubt there are many thing the end user could do.

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.

The tape door will not close. 360x  Can you help    1james3422@bellsouth,net James

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.

Tape door wont close

I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
