    Check for physical damages and foreign objects as well, i think there is sumthing on the sensor mechanism causing that error

HI,

To fix your problem please follow the below steps:

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

This is another method:

1) Put camera in record more
2) push door shut and hold it shut while removing battery
3) While still holding door shut, reinstall battery. do it twice, but within 45 seconds it will work fine.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to accept the solution.

Hi,

I believe this means that there is condensation in the tape mechanism.

    Leave the unit in a dry area to get rid of the condensation.

    Try leaving the battery out overnight to fully reset the unit.

How do I fix the tape holder system on my camcorder? The door won't lock, and the cassette won't get inside the compartment.


hi,
is it close without a cassette ? if so the reel sensor in the cassette compartment may be faulty. if the head drum not rotates the cassette drive will not work correctly, if so please loosen the head drum with a plastic rod or some tools like that. do not put your finger in hence sometimes will jam your finger. remember don"t touch the scanning chip of the head.

Sony dcr-trv350 tape wont close


there is a risk of hardware damage.make sure you dont force the tape into the cassette compartment to avoid damage to the unit or tape.here's what you can do.
1.remove the tape from the compartment.
2.ensure proper type and size of tape is used.
3.ensure no packaging material or foreign material inside the compartment.
4.if attempting to record, make sure cassette tape rec/save switch is set to rec position.
5.reinsert the tape, make sure it's properly inserted.
6.if still won't close or tape ejected again,remove tape.
7.reinsert a diff tape.
8.attempt to close compartment.
9.if issue unresolved, press the tiny reset button while cam is powered on (located in the panel where the lcd screen goes to,just below all the other buttons). you may also do a power reset procedure: remove batt, remove ac adaptor,set power switch to vcr, leave the cam without power for at least a minute, switch power back to off, reinsert ac adaptor/batt and turn cam on, attempt to close tape compartment.

if issue persists, service would be needed. hope this helps.thanks:)

I have a canon zr 100 camcorder. the problem i am having is that it keeps ejecting a cassette when i am trying to load a cassette.it will close without a cassette in the compartment.please let me know what...


Usually caused by a nearly dead battery or a bad cassette. However...before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign objects, such as filament paper that cassettes are wrapped, in cassette slot.
1) make sure battery is fully charged
2) try using a new cassette

I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

Loading tapes


I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.

  1. I'm having the exact same problem. It wont accept the cassette...only half way then errors. It will close fully without a cassette as well. hmmmmm
Comment by Guest, posted on Apr 02, 2008 Load cassette, turn it on, then message says re-load cassette. Door to cassette compartment only works half way. After fiddling with power, can get the cassette door to open and close all the way, but not with cassette. Tried several brands of cassettes, no joy.

Hi
See if this works--If you are on battery there may not be enough power .Charge the battery or use the the mains power through the transformer and see if it works.
