Unable to close/open cassette cover of TRV18E Sony Handycam

My Sony handycam cassette box is Not working. Looks like the manual lock has got a problem. I went to near by service centre but they could Not fix it. THe handycam was working fine . Suddenly one evening, I wanted to change the cassette but cassette did not come out smoothly.
Later while I put the new cassette in and tried to close (this touch sensitive cassette closure), it did Not close.
Please do help me with suggestions and please let me know what needs to be changed.

Sony Handycam CCD-TR64 cassette door won't close

Common problem with this mechanism. In order to fix the problem you will have to replace part called CHASSIS LS. Expensive repair, probably not worth the effort.
