Sony HANDCAM CCD-TRV40 -- no tape eject

The "EJECT" button under the control lid is not working ... and I can not eject the tape. There is an "ARROW-UP" indicator flashing on the screen when I turn the camera "on" ... saying that I need to eject the tape -- possibly some moisture on the tape itself. Again, the problem is I can't actually eject the tape ... it there some manual override of the blue EJECT button?

The first thing you should try is removing the batteries for 20 to 30 minutes to reset the unit. If this does not work push in on the cassette mechanism at the top while trying to eject. Also check the tape compartment cover screws to make sure they are tight. Any misalignment in the cover mechanism will cause binding which will create the problem you describe. Finally, and I know this will sound unusual, slap the unit on the cassette side. Forcefully but not enough to break anything. This procedure has been helpful many times with similar problems. I know it is not sientific but hey if it works. If none of the procedures solves your problems you may need professional help.

SOURCE: Moisture sensor on sony ccd-trv87

Moisture sensor is on the main circuit board and to replace the sensor you probably invest $100-200 for repair. It's the sensor or component surounding the sensor which gone bad. No other way around it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Tape will not eject

I had the same problem and I switched to smaller tapes. I had been using the 120 minute tapes. It seemed like the tape would lock up after a short while with the larger tapes.

CCD-TRV32 won't eject tape

Its better if you get it serviced by an authorized service center,If its not in warranty then try for any local mechanic.If you try to manually open it there is a very possible chance of any kind of damage.

My sony Handycam video 8 ccd-trv40 will no longer record any sound. The camera will play back older tapes and their audio and video. Any suggestions?

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
