Sony Handycam CCD-TRV58 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder 1. Per the manual on esupport.sony.com - if the power is disconnected door won't open, and if the battery is the dead the door won't open. Plug it in and hopefully you can get the tape out.
big problem with sony as you can see im a pro tech but had the same fault with mine. and it broke my heart 4 weeks old and sony dont give a dam ironicly a mate told me slam my fist under the bottom and it will close after hrs of trying to fix it i took his stupid advice and after many hits it closed and worked great for a few weeks
If it is like my Samsung Mini-DV, it will go in by itself if you close the top part as if you had just put a tape in. There is an outer door, then a kind of drawer that slides out on its own power, then the tape compartment pops up. If you are putting a tape in, you then push that pop-up part down into the powered drawer. It's like pinching the two halves together. You can do the same thing without the tape.There will be a pause, then the powered drawer will go back into the camera and you close the outer door by hand.
Sony DCR HC 42
I have the same problem as gskillman
Sony says it qualifies for a fla rate repair -- $201 plus taxes!!! Say what? This camera is only a couople of years old and has hardly ever been used.
hi there, i have exactly the same problem but on a mv750i !!! If i put a tape and close the mechanism motors stars working but it doesn't go in... if i close it without a tape the motors doesn't work... is any possible way to manually push it in ???
I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony
When you put a tape in the tray will not go down. However when the tray is empty and you push it shut it will go down.
In other words the mechanism works fine without the tape but with the tape it doesn't.
I hope the explanation is clear enough.
