Make sure it is not plugged into your computer. If you have the camcorder plugged in via your USB connection, then your camcorder is being powered by your computer.

Unplug everything from your camcorder and then try to turn it off or take the battery out.

My Sony DCR-TRV240 camcorder won't eject the tape. The power and all camera features work, but it won't eject a tape.


I'm sorry that the Camcorder is not ejecting tape. Please follow the troubleshooting steps provided below and check the operation:

1. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged. 2. Perform Reset by following steps:

1. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD panel of the camcorder. 2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds. 3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

3. Perform a manual power reset by following the steps:

1. Turn off the camcorder. 2. Disconnect AC power adapter. 3. Remove the battery pack. 4. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds. 5. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position. 6. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack. 7. Turn on the camcorder.

Error C:04:00


  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Camera won,t turn on or take a charge


If there is a firmware solution on Insignis-Products, you might be able to restore the camcorder to life that way.

However, if the unit won't turn on at all...even when a USB AC charger is used where it should function normally and completely...there is a problem with the camcorder and it may be bricked.

I hope this helps and I hope your camcorder isn't bricked.

SDR-H40 HDD Camcorder won't turn on


I have had mine for 1 year, two months. Earlier, it booted up, and I scrolled by date to locate some older footage. Then the cam just froze up. It wouldn't power down, so I removed the battery. Replaced batterie, and booted it up, located my older footage, and it did the same thing again. Now, when I power it on, the light blinks, the "access HDD" light stays on, but it won't power up, and my computer does not see it. It is also not making that "camera on" sound that it did before. I love this camera and have never had a problem w/ it. This just happened all of a sudden. Any ideas, anyone? I even pushed the "reset" button, but even though it lights up, it won't boot up.
