Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
As long as there is power, the camera ejects the tape (even if there is no tape). This happens while recording, playing back, or powered off or powered on with no action taking place. Of course removal of the battery solves that. This makes taping or reviewing tape impossible. Travel with the camera in the carring case can only be performed without a battery because the tape holder attempts to eject & locks up the camera. The camera gives no error code, just the polite bell to inform you that the tape will eject & then it does so. Please advise?
The flip up cover over the cassette housing has the "eject" button built into it. Sony has had problems with the flexible harness that connects this door to the camera body. The harness rubs against the metal frame of the camera and causes various malfunctions such as the constant eject symptom you are having. Sony service in Laredo, TX can repair this for you, it is no big deal. Good luck, this is a nice camera! Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
