Tape will not eject and the code 3L117c comes up on the display. If we turn the unit off for a time the tape will eject when turned on again. This code also appers after we rewind a tape and we try to eject the tape.

the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove
the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to
help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.
Turn of the unit
and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove
all the screws from the unit and take it apart.
Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.
plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape
tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.
if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit,
carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.
the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing
it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck
press the eject button and the tape should come out.
Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.
The beeping indicates that an error has occurred and that the unit has been disabled because operation could damage the unit further. To determine what the problem is- Turn unit off. While holding the STOP button, turn back on and continue to hold the button for 8 sec, then let go. Press display and you will get an error code on the monitor, for instance, C:21:00 error code (the most common code I get) indicates a condensation problem. If this is the code you get then leave the unit open in a dry place for 24 hours or so, and it should dry out the dew sensor and clear the code. The unit will hold up to 6 error codes in the order that they occur, rotate the wheel to cycle through the codes. Codes are displayed as - C:XX:XX. If you get a code other than C:21:00, then google the code,(Sony C:XX:XX) and the description will probably come up. Good luck.
most of no signal means dsr 11 or similar machines have dirty heads. When they get dirt sometimes, you can´t play a cassette and the machine turns off (with the cassette in).
I´ve tried several times to reload the cassette and I manage to make it work again.
with the cassette in and the machine off press at the same time power and fast forward.
When in fast forward press play and your head should be starting to be clean (takes 4 o 5 minutes
to get a clean picture). Normally the machine gives a code error like if it was a loading problem but
not nearly related
Press the power butten several times while holding down the eject button. It will solve your problem and clear the error. If it not then there is something wrong with your reel motor or the circuitery which deals the reel motor. You must consult your nearby sony service center.
When a tape is inserted or ejected the machine will attempt to tighten the tape by turning the rewind hub for a second, then it watches the counter to see if the fast foward hub turned (thus the tape is tight), if the tape can not turn or the counter sensor is bad then it shuts off (a safety mode to prevent tape damage). So, you could have a bad belt, bad idler wheel, or bad sensor.
I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.
If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature.
Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code.
Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
