Tape will not play or record - flashing eject icon and beeping

I just took my camcorder out of the closet after being in there for several months, and now I am not able to play the tape or record, rewind, etc. I have read the manual and searched on here for solutions. Tried drying it out in case of a moisture problem, tried cleaning it, but not very well, I could not figure out how to take the compartment off to get in close. Im desperately hoping that I dont have to buy a new camcorder or pay to fix it. Help please!

Tape Wont Play

My advice is that you should by a cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!

Sony ccd trv218e, recording & playing back does'nt work

I had that problem also and I found that using smaller tapes helped. I was using the 120 minute tapes, I think they may be too heavy.

Sony DCR-TRV145E Digital 8 camcorder - won't play or record.

Fortunately they are still making 8mm camcorders usually running less the $200 to replace. It could be more cost effective to get a new model for that price as well. I couldn't record on my Sony 8mm camcorder anymore after five years of use and over 100 tapes that I had recorded. It's plays back but that's about it.

Warning indicator C:32:00/C:32:11

I had the same problem (error c:32:00, beeps and tape would not eject. Cassette was halfway ejected) on my Sony CCD-TR416. I found the fix here:

http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/DisplayComments.php?file=Video%20Camera/Sony/DCR_PC5E_Error_code_C_21.00.html

To summarize: remove the battery, unplug from the wall and smack the **** outta the bottom of the camera. It worked for me. It looks like my problem was that the tape had started coming out of the cassette body and caused a jam.

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape

ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.

Blank screen during playback

your camcorder video head is dirty, use a brand new tape and playback for around 5 minutes or more, this will serve as your video head cleaner. you may try at least five times doing this: insert, play, eject,play, eject again. your camcorder has a built in videohead cleaner and activates only during insert, play or rec, and eject mode. If the problem is still there, manual videohead cleaning is needed, use clean bond paper and lighter fluid, damp the bond paper (Size about 1" by 3") with fluid and rub with care the videohead (not the bond paper!The vhead should be the one turning not the paper)by slowly turning the videohead against the paper. Be careful cause this is dangerous that you might brake the videohead permanently. apply only a slight force to the head.

Eject is flashing with fast beeps. Won't eject tape or open compartment.

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..
