Question about Sony HVR-A1U Camcorder
I have an hvr-a1j on which suddenly he mini dv drive will not retract after a mini dv is inserted. I would really like to use the camera today. Is there something I can try immediately?
Sorry there is no quick fix to help you. You need to take to a service cinter to have it repaired.

Try cleaning around the tape compartment with some cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol as it sounds as though the tape detector does not know a tape is there. This should be an opto sensor at the rear of the tape compartment opposite where the tape read / write protect tab is located and there should also be one at the front of the compartment near the head assembly point that looks at the tape itself so it can indicate end of tape etc.
