Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 Digital Camcorder
I am having a real problem with my handy cam. The cassette door will not close. I can close it then it begins lowering, but halfway it stops and rises back up and ejects the tape. Please help...the warranty has expired and it will cost almost as much to fix as to buy a new camera.

-make sure that your tape is clean and dry
-clean the tape head inside the tape deck if you have a video head tape cleaner
*tape head: the one that reads the tape inside the camcorder.its the metal thing at the bottom inside the tape deck.
-or you can use a soft and dry Q-tip to clean it(dont use any liquid cleaners)
*or if confused where the tape head is....just clean all metal parts inside the tape deck and make sure you do it lightly with a soft dry Q-tip.
