Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I load the tape and close it, it doesn't drop down. I have had the camera repaired for this problem in the past and don't want to go through the time and expense for this. any solutions?
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.
