I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick

Sony CCD TR31 - tape holder will not lower into camcorder


Does the tape have blocking tabs that prevent recording? May be telling you that you can't use that particular tape.

If not take it in for professional repair. I think Sony is in Mississauga.

Pull the battery out to reset it. Get a DV tape cleaner to clean out the tape deck.

That should solve both.

unfortunately the tape clamp sensor is broken or worn, or could have dust or dirt obstructing it and they don't have parts for these anymore, the tape clamp sensor is like a tiny white plastic sensor only a few millimeters in size with a red eye inside the edge of the tape carriage, and needs possible cleaning, it could be something as simple as dirt inside the mechanism over the sensors, the Tv will power down when the error occurs not much you can do if a clean or high output air blow of the components don't do the trick. sometimes dirt in the circuit can cause it to do that too, ....im surprised it lasted this long actually they were great for the bedroom, i had one ages ago they are available on ebay for about $100 or under now ...Sorry i couldn't be of more help.......you may get away with disconnecting the white feed ribbon cable that powers the tape cartridge and just use it as a DVD and Tv, that should stop the error.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

Tape will not retract


Sounds like the carrage is out of time with the deck. Either that or the mode switch (the switch that senses the location of all the gears on the deck) is in need of an internal cleaning. When the contact pads on the mode switch get a little corroded it will confuse the microprocessor that controls loading and it will not know where the gears really are. Good luck.
