If you take it off of battery and plug it into the wall, does it do the same thing?

    If your battery has been fully charged and it is still doing that, you probably need to replace the battery.

    It could be. Either it isn't charging the battery properly or it isn't running the battery at the proper rate.

How do I load the tape


I see your picture of a cassette player. Guess you are referring to that. (tapes also come in reel-to-reel, and 8-track). Just push the "EJECT" button (power may need to be applied to some units for the eject button to work). The tape slot will open. Insert tape with exposed tape on the "head" side of the opening, usually the heads are on the bottom of the slot.. You can't put it in any other way and have the door close. The "door" that opens has guides for you to slide the tape into. The side you want to listen to should face you. Either manually close the tape compartment or push the close button (depending on model). If the door doesn't close, you put it in upside down. Push play and enjoy.

Where can I buy Pioneer CT-W701R Stereo Double Cassette Tape Deck Riemen Belt


If the methods listed in the manual won't open the door, then the tape is not inserted properly. Insert a golf tee in one of the two small holes below the tape door and slightly adjust the position of the tape up, down, or sideways. Then press the eject button and it should open. This will only work if the belt is OK.

Cannot get tape to eject


It could be a couple of different issues. These things could help.
(1) Power OFF the camera, remove battery then replace the battery, power up the cam and try to eject tape again. Nothing? try...
(2) Gently press inward on the tape cover with both thumbs a few times. Then, while pressing gently inward with one hand, press the release/eject-tape function until you hear a click or release sound. Then, if it doesn't open automatically, gently "help" open the hatch.

If it remains stuck, after follwing these steps a few times it would be my guess that perhaps the camera has been dropped in a way that jammed the mechanism controlling the eject function.

TIPS that may prevent having eject problems: When loading tape, be sure to insert the tape correctly and slowly, makeing sure the tape is placed properly. Gently press on the specific location indicated to close the tape holder, and wait for the tape to "seat" properly before closing any other part of the tape cover or hatch mechanism. Taking a few extra seconds when loading the tape can save extended frustration later.

When opening camera to insert tape,tape tray slides out,does not


This is new for a sony camcorder technician. Here is what you should do. There may be a sticky substance holding the side tape door to open then the whole tray will go back down. Using battery, press the eject button when the tray is all the way up, disengage the battery to turn the power off. This way you will have the tape tray at posititon just before the opening of side door. With you finger nudge the door outward to see if it is just got stuck by substance. Using Q-Tip with some "windex" go around the edges of the tray. You can also take the door off by removing two screws. -James. For additional assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Tape eject


I have the same camcorder SONY DCR-TRV130 and have had this same problem.

The first time this happened, I was able to eject the tape by turning the unit to VCR, removing the battery then putting battery back in and pressing the blue eject button. Now 2 years later, same problem only the same solution did not work. I read many other solutions, and found one I had not yet heard of. They mentioned using a straight edge..... I was confused, but learned that the point is to try to press the blue eject button without having to completely open (lift) the door. I was able to use a strong paperclip (opened up or unfolded) I reached in with the paperclip and applied pressure to the blue button and as soon as I heard the "gears" turning, I lifted the door and the tape ejected.

Try it, I was very surprised that it worked. This has been a problem for me for about a month. I am pleasantly surprised to have a solution. Hopefully it will work for you too!

Gs36 tape door doesnt open


In case anybody read this....     I have a GS-36 that would not eject the tape. I removed all the screws from the bottom and pulled the bottom plate off. Then I fidgeted with the mechanism near the eject button towards the front of the camera.  In my case it had just become stuck and needed to be gently pried open.    Tested it a bunch of times with tape - seems to be o.k.!

"Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open


I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.
