Tape door won't open or close to release tape

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.

Did this work?

How do you close the door when there is no tape in the recorder

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.

Possibly your model is different.

Tape wouldn't eject, now power unavailable.

open it. find the motor that activates the tape door. turn it by hand until tape is fully exposed to be removed.

Tape door wont close

I'm having a similar problem. The camera is a Sony DCR-TRV280. 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. Thanks
