Yeah ! Your problem is very simple. u can solve it on your own.
If you dont put the tape the comparment closes well and as soon as you pot the tape the compartment does not close , Right ?
The solution is there within ur hands itself.
If you want the compartment to be closed, then simply dont put the tape inside. let it be outside itself. U see, its so easy !

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

When I put my tape in the camcorder and close the metal door, the tape does not go down. but when empty, the tape holder do go down.


Hi, My Sony DCR-HC32 handycam's tape mechanism is giving me some problem. It ejects and the tape deck opens up properly but after putting a tape and closing it, the tape deck does not go in. I tried with or without tape but it doesn't go in. It is still open.
Can you please suggest how it could be fixed?
Thanks,
Pramod

My camcorder tape door won't close


Try removing the battery for a few seconds, and then re-inserting. This seems to reset something on my DCR-TRV20, and it starts closing properly.

there can be many reasons. rusted contacts, or blown up fuses, or a short circuit in the power board, and may be some thing else. No one can help unless he examines the camera.

I'm not from the UK so can't help you find a lab. but regarding your problem - The fact that it works well without a tape tells us that the load motor and possibly even the capstan motor and associated mechanisms are working. It doesn't tell us much about anything else though. Could be that the head drum is not spinning - This can be the result of a siezed drum motor, or power supply fault(if seized it will draw excess current, thus giving a battery warning indication). A faulty, or possibly even a correcly working dew sensor - This will allow the heads to spin, but prevent the tape from actually lacing up. This is a 'hard' one really, because if the dew sensor is faulty you will get this problem, but you will get the same problem when the sensor is working and actually doing its job in that it has really detected moisture. There are many other possible causes too. The first thing to look for is to see if the heads are spinning - or at least see if they *try* to spin, because unless they *are* spinning the tape will never load. Also, the heads *shouldn't* be spinning with no tape inserted - if they are then this suggests that the dew sensor has been activated (the heads are made to spin under this condition in an attempt to dry things out). If this gives no clues, the next step would probably be to dismantle the thing and attempt to load a tape by hand (looking for signs of jamming mechanism, etc. Anything more serious than this is one for the workshop. Platano guatemalteco? Good luck!
