Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder 1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com - if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open. Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.
Try this if you are tech savy, if not you may want to take it to a person to have it fixed or send it off to sony.
1. unplug camcorder AC cord 2. remove fat battery from back of camcorder 3. remove slim battery from under the LCD (it's the size of a nickle coin) 4. wait 2 minutes 5. plug AC into the camcorder 6. flip the camcorder into VTR mode 7. tape should automatically eject Found at : http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/DisplayComments.php?file=Video%20Camera/Sony/DCR-TRV350_tape_wont_eject_C.32.11.html

, on ebay from wanghaostore. 10$. works perfectly, useful to digitalize VHS tapes too.
Batteries have a limited life even if they are constantly charged.
Leaving batteries in constant charge will limit their life by causing gas leakage. Once depleted, they must be replaced. There is also a small button battery that keeps unit memory up, if you do not use camera for months at a time, replace this battery also.
Ni-Cad batteries need to be refreshed ony once a month by discharging them fully, then recharging them fully for best performance to erase memory effect
there are fuses ,but they are small solder in types, all fx series camcorder have a common problem with the rear power board working it's way loose and unplugging itself from the main board. these units have alot of solder connection issue due to sony's use of poor solder back in the earily 90's
