The camera's firmware has sensed a jam or too slow rotation in the cassette's take-up roller. Really difficult to overcome. The tape may already be snarled round a roller, but is certainly in the "loaded" tape path. I've had this and had to disassemble the whole tape transport mechanism - which is really difficult - after trying unsuccessfully to drive the unload motor from an external 6v power supply. Sometimes a really hard sideways bang on the camera can free up the roller enough to let it rotate a bit, satisfy the motion sensor and allow an eject.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV67E, ejects all the time with or without tape inserted. How can I fix this easily?

It can be thaat the ejecct is accidently being activated from the main panel switch or there is a fault in the main panel/ eject switch or a malfunctioning of the controller processor section.

You can check and see if there is any mopisture build up on the panel, if so use a hair dryer to warm carefully. If not remove the eject panel and check the eject switch, check if the switch is too loose to activate. If so replace the eject switch.
Other wise the fault seems to go further into the processor section which migght require you to open and check the input to the processor for the eject activation or if the eject load motor is activated in an error.

I have an Error Code C:32:11 and it says. Reattach the power sours. Is there any thing that can be done to fix this problem other then taking it to a shop?

This error code indicates that you have a problem with the tape loading mechanism which is causing a drive system time-out. There is a slight possibility that it may be due to a tape fault if this is occurring whilst a cassette is loaded in the mechanism. If so, it is sometimes possible to get the unit to eject the jammed cassette by removing the battery; connecting the AC adaptor and pressing EJECT whilst the Operation switch is set to OFF.
If all this fails then it looks like a job for a professional, sorry. RHN

I am a electronic tech and I had a DRCTRV950 come into my shop and I am trying to help a friend out getting this camcorder running. The problem I am having is everything seems to work right except when you...

This can occur when the heads do not spin up fast enough or the loading does not complete. Check for slipping of the loading belt. There is more load placed on the loading motor and mechanism in total when the tape is actually there. The flashing Eject indicates that the load did not complete.

Hope this helps a bit.

The mechanical of the tape loading path is misaligned, Contact any expert for mechanical adjustment of the tape loading path, No worries it will work fine again, and this would not be expensive.
