Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV260 Digital Camcorder
Hey guys, I lent my camera to a friend about a week ago and he accidentally dropped it on the floor from about desk height. Now when I play videos and sometimes record the camera stops what it's doing and tells me to reinsert the cassette. When I do the cassette holder kind of grinds against the inside of the camera, and sometimes stops altogether until it pops out again and I have to try again. Any way to fix this myself, and/or would it be better to repair or get a new camera? Thanks!
If the warranty is no longer valid, try to identify what part of the camera is being scraped, then gently bend it back into place. There are a lot of thin metal shields inside the camera that could easily have been dented. I would strongly suggest a repair, as it is a very simple problem that can be easily fixed by moderately skilled hands.
Usually when I got that error message, I would take out the cassette, close it up, take off the battery, and smack it really hard a couple of times. It sounds odd, but it comes from a sony technician. It's the perfect temporary fix.
