Question about Sony Handycam DCR-IP5 Micro MV Digital Camcorder
I ejected a tape which seemed to have been jammed or "torn"...after removal of the tape, the door will not shut with or without a tape inserted. Does anyone have any way to trouble shoot this?
SOURCE: cassette jam
I had this problem, and here is how it was resolved.
My cassette would not pop out when I opened the door with the camera turned on. When I turned off the camera and opened the door, it slid out much further, but still failed to pop open so that I could remove the tape. Then it slid back in.
Remove the battery, and have the camera off, but make sure the power cord is connected. Open the door until the tape slides out further than at other times. (Note: It intermittently slides out further when the camera is off. Sometimes it will not slide out any further than when it is on.) When the tape is slid out as far as it will go, quickly remove the power cord. The tape will stay in the slid-out position. Now, at the bottom side of the tape door there is a curved channel for a small pin to slide in. This channel has a 90% curve at the bottom of the channel to catch the pin, which holds the door closed. Push that pin back a little (toward the lense) to get it to go around that 90% curve, and the door will pop open so you can remove your tape. The ribbon of your tape will be jammed in the camera a little, so you will have to be careful and move the ribbon around a little until you can get it out freely.
This worked for me twice. I did not try putting a tape in again.
I hope this helps.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
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.

I solved my Sony Camera problem by throwing the camera in the trash and vowing never to purchase a Sony Camera again. When I saw many other people posting the same problem on the internet, I came to the conclusion this is a major problem with Sony Cameras.
