Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TR618E Camcorder

Open Question

I have a Sony Handycam CCD-TR61. It has worked fine until today. It will not accept a tape. If I close the door without a tape, it closes and completely shuts like it is supposed to. But, if I put in a tape and close the door, it pauses and then ejects the tape.

Tape door won't open or close to release tape


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.

Did this work?

My handycam will eject properly and close properly with no tape. When I put a tape in and close it, it wont **** in, and makes a click..click..click sound for about 15 seconds then ejects the tape, but...


I'm no authority on this model but when I did something like this on my Canon GL 2 I had the tape in the opposite way and it came up to the stops and clicked. All I did to make it work was turn the tape around and I was good to go. Your camera is doing the same thing and the tape is just coming to the stop. If you don't correct it my camera went into a sleep mode some may even shut right off.

I have a Sony Video8 Handycam CCD-FX340 NTSC. It will not accept a tape. I can hit the eject button and the tape mechanism will come up and pop open. If I close it without a tape, it will go back down....


This problem can be caused by condensation. Leave camera and tapes in a warm dry place for a day and try again. If that doesn't help, there may be a tape threading fault. This can be something as simple as a broken drive belt, but still will require professional attention.

My sony trv37 cassette door won't close.


If this condition only occurs with as cassette inserted to load this may indicate a condition where the cylinder which holds the video heads is not spinning up when requested by the system control microprocessor.
If the door will not latch closed with/or without a cassette inserted this can indicated a mis-timed condition of the tape loading mechanism.
Try closing the door without a cassette loaded whilst the unit is powered from its AC Adaptor - under certain conditions this may allow the mechanism to reset and may allow the door to then close.
I trust that this information is of assistance! RHN

Sony Handycam CCD-TR64 cassette door won't close


Common problem with this mechanism. In order to fix the problem you will have to replace part called CHASSIS LS. Expensive repair, probably not worth the effort.

Tape door wont close on my Sony CCD-TR416 camcorder


Try this for anyone having this issue:

HERE'S WHAT WORKED FOR ME PER SONY TECHS:
Take? OUT the battery or disconnect the AC cord.
Turn the camera ON (tape, memory, edit settings) for 15 seconds.
Turn camera to off setting.
Plug battery or AC cord back in.
VOILA!
Worked for me and I had the stupid C32:11 error code for weeks! Door would not close. Followed the SIMPLE and SAFE instructions and IT WORKED! Just like magic. I couldn't believe it! Save your money TRY THIS!

Tape door wont close


I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down. In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't. I hope the explanation is clear enough. Thanks
