Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR818 Camcorder
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.

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.
