Lens Cover won't fully open

When I turn on my Handycam the Lens Cover won't fully open. I get a display telling me, "Lens Cover not fully open, turn power off and then on." When I try to do this I get the same thing over and over again. Because the lens cover won't fully open, my Handycam won't let me record. Help me FixYa your my only hope.

Shutters on the lens won't fully open

Stuck automatic lens covers are fairly. But usually it's very easy to fix, without even opening the camera. See this link for troubleshooting steps for this problem.

Lens Cover not fully open

It sounds like a problem with the firmware in the camcorder itself. As an authorized Sony repair person, I have gotten no technical bulletin on this model. The firmware is preloaded into the microprocessor IC. You will need to have this unit looked at by an authorized Sony repair center who specializes in camcorder repairs or send the unit to a Sony factory service center. good Luck

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.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Shutter will not open/close (Disengaged from motor - "flopping" loose)

Well, replacement of the shutter unit (lens barrier)instead of the repair seems more realistic... Please contact your nearest Sony Service for the price estimate. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Lens Cover will not open or close

OMG! I had the same issue and blew on the lens. To easy to be true, but it worked! I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I turned the camcorder on and off several times, and it worked every time! Sure beats the $341 Sony was going to charge to fix it!!!!
