Handy cam hi8 dcr


Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

My handy cam (Hi8) has problem loading the tapes. As soon as you load the tape it will close and in about 5 seconds eject itself.



This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

HELP, I have borrowed an older camcorder from a friend. A sony Hi8 CCD-TR101 handycam. My child put the tape in backwards and now it wont eject. What should I do??


Tape can not be inserted backward in.It is impossible to to insert cassette inside video wrong way.
If it is not ejecting its eject switch might have got broken by physically pulling its cassette compartment outward before closing last time.
Its mini switch is very fragile in all sony models. so only way is to take to technician to bring it out.If i were you,I would buy used one from ebay at lower price than repairing.

Unit accepted cassette, won't eject


It is likely that either the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Because the unit is still in "play" mode, the mechanism won't let the door open up. If you have not opened up these units before, do not attempt it now. This unit should be taken to an experienced tech for repair. Where are you located?

Hi8 won't eject cassette


There is a broken plastic part inside the cassette and needs to be replaced. Mostly due to cassette tape improper position and camera jam (tape jam).

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.

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.

Regarding rewind problem


The mechanism is to be replaced.
Before this check the TG assemblies for any deformation.
Then check the reel table also for any defects.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
