Sony dvd camcorder DCR-DVD201E Lid not closing

Spent a day with the kids at Leggoland Windsor UK, the cam corder worked fine all day, I was able to change the DVD when the first one got filled, but then all of a sudden when I tried to finalise a disk the Lid would not close, no LED lighting up either, worked fine untill then. Exercising the open button does bring the laser to the centre but the lid locking mechansim stays in open position with the "close lid icon" flashing on the screen. Normally when lid is closed the lock secure the lid, but not now. Does any one have any service information please. Any help will be greatfully received. Thanks

    It was in fact the flimsy metal bracket that secures the lid which had distorted over months of use.
    This has now been repaired and made stronger by use of araldite glue. So far working OK .
    Thank you "magic seadog" for your advice.

Most often, in this case, the locking relay has failed. Sony has an improved part for this. It requires a Sony qualified servicer. I have replaced them before. Good luck, magic seadog
