Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
The tape deck closes normally with no tape in. put a tape in and the and the door closes but the top doesn't go down???
I have a handy can and had trouble with the cage closing with a tape installed. I found the most unlikely problem the rotation of the drun was slowing up and then siezed eventually.
I took it apart abd it was not a good idea to go any farther into the cage to extract the drum. The drum goes for over 250 dollars the price of half of the camera. Well I figure what the heck I experimented. I soaked the hole cage and drum in Denatured alcohol and unn siezed it. then I blew it out with the air compressor and really made the head spin. Then as I put the unit back together I found i was not careful with the audio ribon cable lost sound but the unit did work for silent movies. It was junk anyways over 250 dollar 3 head drum.
