    Yes.  I have the same problem when I insert a mini DV,  The cassette compartment won't retract back into the camera.  When there is not a mini DV inserted, the cassette compartment holder will retract back into the camera.

There is a small motor at the lower right corner ( if you face the tape side of the camcorder). check if the motor reponds to a 5v voltage. if not, that is the problem

Problem with the Sony Handycam DCR-HC32 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Moisture condensation turn off 1 hour


It can be a tiny dew switch mounted on near the drum motor, Which you can change off values with a resisitor for the fault .
Also if you can blow hot air into the cassette tray this would enable the dew switch to open out.

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.
