    Fixed, brilliant. pisdoff has a great solution, but I would use a piece of bic instead of q-tip. No need for glue.

On the sony dcr-hc28 i have an c32:11 error and will not allow me to insert a tape, I have tried other tapes?

The C32:11 error is a motor movement error. This means that a motor or gear is NOT moving when it should. As a sfety feature, this will prevent a tape from getting loaded and getting damaged. This unit requires repair. This is not typically a DIY repair as opening these up is tricky and if not done properly can cause additional damage. Check for local labor rates as well as the fixed repair cost from Sony directly. The fixed rpair cost from Sony will also include any parts that are required.

Hope this helps,

I accidentally dropped my Sony Camcorder -- Now I cannot play the tape back nor can I record. The only indication that anything works is the charging light will come on when I plug it in. There isn't any...

It is probably not worth fixing. You can likely get a new camera for less than your repair cost. If you want to watch your old tapes there are many places that will convert them to DVD.

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.

E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.
