Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV107E Camcorder
I was rewinding my vhs tape and it all the sudden stopped rewinding gave me the eject icon and then I ejected the tape. I saw that the tape was mid way through rewinding and then I tried to get it to finish but it will not. the tape will not go into the machine.. If I take the tape out then the door will close electrically.. but if i put the tapen in and close the tape it will not go down into the machine... it merely waits and then pop the tape back 0ut again.. help me please....
SOURCE: Tape won't load
Was having a similar problem but the tape would not even partially load. Spent several hours, over the course of several days trying to figure how to fix this and found the following solution to a similar problem on this site. I tried it as a last resort...it worked! Now I just need to figure out what to tell my wife when she asks me "how" I fixed the camera???? Here is what I did...I allowed the mechanism to close without a tape inserted (the only way it WOULD close), gave it a solid - but gentle - whack on the tape side of the camcorder with the palm of my hand...sort of like burping a baby. I said a little prayer to the saint of hopeless causes (St. Jude Thaddeus)...slid the open/eject button, opened the door, slid a tape in, gently pushed it down (where it says "push") and ...the mechanism closed!!! Not sure if the "fix" will last but we'll see and report back if the problem crops up again.

sad to say that the problem of your camera is the timing gear is already damage....it need to disassembly the camera to fix the timing gear....go to the qualified service center for fixing or replacing the timing gear..

no reset, the infred led inside the unit are bad and need to be replaced common problem, they are located on the ends of the tape mech.

SOURCE: loading tapes
Hello, exact same problem here, closes fine when no tape inserted, but with a tape, the camera won't close, just keeps ejecting the tape.
Another problem that I encountered is that the camera will not take pictures anymore.
When I press the button, it beeps, but there appears a green dot on the screen,
My handbook tells me, when this dot appears on the screen, this means he camera will not take a picture, it however doesn't tell me how to solve the problem.

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject
The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.
The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!
