Unable to remove tape from my sony Hi8 990X

My camera was hit by a wave at the beach. Didn't get too wet, but it doesn't work now. Battery is still good. I ordered a new camera....but I would like to get the tape out of the damaged one...but the eject isn't working. Can I do it manually?

Yes, you should open the camera and near the video head there is loading motor. It has 2 terminals, just give power of 4-5 volts and motor will rotate and mechanism will drive to eject position.

Maybe the battery of your camera is wet. Try to quickly dry your camera's battery in sunlight and then put the whole camera ( excluding battery ) in sunlight. This may work as the moisture in your camera would dry out and chances are there that it may start working.

It got wet on the beach. water went into the camera and it won't start anymore.


The best way to try to recover items that have had water damage is to place them in a container with the gel packs you find in new shoes. If none of those are available to you try putting the camera in a ziplock bag with rice. This will absorb any moisture left in the camera. Take out the battery and memory card before trying either of the prior options.
After you have let the camera sit with the gel or rice overnight or for several hours, remove the camera from the bag and blow off any dust from the rice. Make sure that the inside of the camera is clean and dry (where the battery goes) Then put the battery and memory card back in. Make sure that the battery is fully charged and try turning it on.
If that doesn't work try going to a specialty camera store such as B&W. They can help you further and instruct you on how to procede.
It is advised not to get any digital electronic wet as most are not water proof and will be damaged by any exposure to water.

I'm getting an error message of E:91:01. I still


E:91:01 is a flash unit error, probably meaning your flash is inoperative .
Try settings, main menu, setup, initialise.
If this does not work, then new flash module required.

I was getting the same code and a dinging noise. I tried a cleaner and I tried letting the camera dry out...it wasn't wet! Neither worked. SOOO...Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. The stripes/bars also went away. Camera1.gif instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.

the only thing I can suggest is resetting the camera by removing the tape and closing compartment... then remove batteries and let sit for 3 minutesturn on camera and insert tape, you should get it to work... my cam does the same thing, I use it and right when something important comes up I get hit with the dew warning.. apparently its a faulty sensor inside the camera usually I can override it by resetting the camera. I hope this helps in any way, i know the frustration with these damn camcorders, it will be the last dv cam I buy from sharp

Blue Horizontal lines and no sound! Please...what to do?


you should buy a head cleaning tape that fits your tape deck on your camera. They should be at any store that sells electronics, or a general store, such as Wal Mart. Follow the instructions. If that doesn't work, then I don't know what to do.
