Camcorder Will Not Close

My Camcorder wont close. It stays open and will not close by itself, or manually. I don't know what to do. I have a video project to do in less than two weeks and I am stuck with a camera that won't close. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Re: Camcorder Will Not Close

This is due to the improper closing of the cover below the cassette compartment(where the USB, 3894 ports r there)
Pl. close it properly. Then open the cassette door completely, and then close. It works.

Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.

Did this work?

The cassette holder isn't closing......and the tape is not loading

See if this works--If you are on battery there may not be enough power .Charge the battery or use the the mains power through the transformer and see if it works.
Hope this helps
