Question about Sony Cameras

2 Answers

My Sony HVR-HD1000U camcorder will not allow tapes to be inserted. Pushing down on carrier/elevator does not click and lock it in. Can't close access door.

    The access door is open and the carrier has moved up and elevated the tape for removal. Upon trying to load another tape, the elevator will not click shut regardless of where you push and so of course the carrier will not retract and load the tape.
    This has happened before and sometimes it would work and then not. I did learn that if the camera was set on VCR function instead of OFF, a new tape could be loaded but now that does not work.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with gently knock on the push button simultaneously opening the cassette holder and insert the cassette. Now push on the right side and gently push the holder back in position and press play, fast forward and backward one by one. The Camcorder will now accept the cassette. If still the issue is not resolved then visit an authorized repair centre to get it serviced as it is not recommended a user level repair. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

Sony HVR-Z1U problem inserting mini DV tape: door won't open all the way, will not close back either


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.
