Yes, first of all thank you for you quick response and you should know that the service you provide is excellent, second to none.

I checked the online manual for the Tr818 and in the trouble shooting section they did have the code C:32:00 which stated to remove the power from the unit...So I disconected the charger and removed the battery for a few seconds. When I restablished the power to the unit the code was no longer there and it worked well after that.

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.

SOURCE: my sony handycam dcr-hc26 door won't close

Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.

Fridge door not closing properly


This section of this refrigerator door repair guide will walk you though repairing a refrigerator door on a side-by-side refrigerator. On most side-by-side refrigerators there is a cam that lifts the door up when you open the door so that the door has a tendency to fall down and back into place while it is closing. If the refrigerator has a cam and it is working properly, the refrigerator door will rise up when you open it and lower when you close it. If this cam is broken the door will not close properly. A lot of refrigerators have two cams, one screwed on the door and one on the hinge. You may have to replace the entire hinge to replace the lower cam but the cam on the door can always be replaced. You will have to order the cam by model number and can do so on this website

On side-by-side refrigerators without cams there will be a spacer on the door hinge. If this spacer is missing replace it. Note that any plastic spacer will work as long as it will go on the hinge pin and is not too thick. Never use a metal spacer because this will cause wear on the door and it will eventually squeal when closing.

As on top-freezers the door gasket may be ripped and if so refer to the bottom section that talks about door gasket replacement.

Sometimes the door can get warped out of shape. If the door is closing at the top and not at the bottom or vice versa the door may be warped out of shape. You can fix this by twisting the door back into shape. Take you foot and place it at the bottom and pull the door out at the top or place your foot inside the door at the bottom and push at the top with your hand depending on which way you need to twist the door. Note don’t over do it twist it a little and if it isn’t enough twist it a little more. If it gets worse you may need to twist the other way.

hope this helpout ......

Re: danby upright freezer 20.1 cubic ft., model #

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

Whirlpool refrigerator side x side doors make a popping noise if opened past halfway... model GS5SHAXNL00

The door closing cams were worn on both doors. I had to buy a cam kit that cost about $10.00 and had the parts for both doors in it, take off the doors, and replace the cams. Before taking off the door that has an ice and water dispenser, I had to turn off the water to the fridge, take off the front grill, and disconnect the water tube that goes into the door (as the tube is threaded through the door cam). After replacing the door closing cams and reassembling, there is no longer a popping sound.

Tape holder of camcorder isnt closing

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
