Sony Handycam - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Trust me on this one....with tape still in unit and battery removed, smack both sides of unit firmly 3-4 times with the heel of your hand. It works 9 out of 10 times on all Sony cameras. I was quoted $170 to just look at the camera and then a probable $290 to replace the cassette loader mechanism. I told them it wasn't worth it. I checked other Sony blogs addressing the same issue and with out fail smacking the ...cking thing is the only way around it. Apparently it frees up a stuck part. Give it hell.

Any V8 camcorder will play your tapes. Hi 8 will be needed if your recorded in Hi 8 mode.
Sony, Sanyo and Sharp made V8 camcorders. Pioneer made some very nice V8 players!

Battry Mode not working
If where you put the batteries in are corroded you can use a small file or sand paper to clean them up so you can get better connections hope this helps Merry Christmas

Deleting files from the Sony HDR-SR1 Camcorder Hard Drive
As long as the files are related to the films and any other files you have saved,then yes you can.
but if you are still not happy to do this then just delete mts files first and check to make sure all is well,if so then delete the cpi files.
again if your still not sure then,then just copy the files mts cpi to a disc.then when you have done that.if anything goes wrong you can put the files back if needed.
or if you have enough space with leaving the mts and the cpi files on there then just leave them there.
but what ever you do will be at your own risk.
