Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC40 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hello. Absolutely, positively, DON'T force anything. That tape insertion/eject mechanism is a precision assembly. Always make sure the battery is properly charged before attempting to load a cassette into the camcorder. The only way to fix a damaged cassette loader is to have an experienced tech inspect and repair/replace the assembly. The problem could just be dirt or, stripped, mis-timed gears/levers. The thin metal which makes up the loader frame is very susceptible to bending--that's why you're directed to push only on designated areas. Send the cam directly to a repair facility and not through a store. You'll save substantial cost that way.---Hope I helped you!---Rick
