Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
I have an old sony handycam trv-87 and the tape ejector wont close when i put a tape in. it powers up just fine, wondering if there is a simple solution to fix this before i take it in somewhere. Thanks
Sounds like a possible tension spring on the latch has broke, or fallen off, the latch is on the side of the tape compartment, looks like a small hook and is locks around a pin if the spring is broke or the pin has gotten bent, that is your problem.

The camcorder most likely is not detecting the tape, you have a bad sensor and these sensors all come on a flex type board and the flex board is mounted on the chassis surface. This will mean that the entire mechanism will meed to be diassembled, and is a very big and costly job. My opinion is that this repair will run you abut 250 to 300 bucks and this camcorder is not worth this as new camcorders are under 200 bucks. Good Luck

SOURCE: 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
