    When the case is opened the tape carrage no longer opens to give you access to the tape cassette. Therefore, I can only record over the tape over and over and never eject it to insert a blank. I've tried to do the reset feature to no avail. Please help! The Sony website helpdesk states a minimum of $311 usd to start a repair.

Condensation moisture error icon (tear drop) on for some time, I do not think I have ever had a real condensation or moisture issue but have let the camera dry for weeks, error still appears, can you help...


Blow into the cassette compartment with a hair dryer , do not use too much heat but just to warm up. The dew sensor is fitted near to the drum assembly. this is to prevent the tape being chewed up if there is condensation. The dew switch can go defective inmany cases and can be destabilised. so if after heating the fault changes you can find this small black piece of a conducting medium exposed. Remove the solder of one side and check.

Dcr pc5 camera to computer connection


Your PC5 should have FireWire as standard, but Sony use a smaller 4 pin connector which looks a little bit like the tiny USB connectors on modern phones and still cameras. The main difference between the 4 pin and the standard FW400 6 pin, is no power is supplied to the 4 pin, so the camera must be powered from the internal battery or an external supply
The original Imacs came with such a cable, but you can buy these from various suppliers. It's part number F3N401-06 from Belkin or M8706G from Apple

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.

Sony DCR-PC5


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
