Geeks has helped me on a few occasions , THANK YOU! but now my Q is about a video camera.
The cassette will not load! The chamber opens and accepts cassette and tries to retract, but it just clicks and hangs, the spits it out.
This happened like over night, but in truth I haven't used the video camera in almost a year, LOL
Any ideas or suggestions of links to try troubleshooting .....?

Hello asti,

I'm glad we were able to help with your other issues.

What type of video camera is this? Type the name of the video camera

(name) and then (forums) and maybe you will be directed to a help forum for that type.

Good Luck!

Well... If your good at disecting and fixing things yourself, then I would recommend that first...

I like tearing things apart to fix, or just to see how they work.. ;)

And if your good at fixing things yourself, is to take it to a place that works on those type of recorders, then let them just take a look, and ask them "what they think"

Dont let them do anything on it, it wont cost then... And then see if you can find parts for this camera, and or even one on Ebay (which I see them sell cameras just for parts) and then try and fix it yourself.

But otherwise. I would look into buying a new one.

Sorry about your camera, that really stinks... But I would not give up yet, since you just did find your issue. I'll see if I can find anything else.. that was just a quick search on my part.

I'll let you know if I find anything within 24 hours. :tazz:

http://www.pechorin.com/ (chat forum)

www.partstore.com (Partstore has over 7 Million parts Toll Free Help and Easy Returns)

www.videoonerepair.com (Camcorder Repair Specialists Fast Free Estimates Free Return Shipping)

www.camcorderexperts.com (Expert Camcorder Repair Prosumer and Consumer Models)

And do you still have the manual? And also, just looking for any info on this product, I have ran across a lot of complaint forums about sony and these type of cameras. PLEASE before buying anything, make sure you look for forums and reviews on a product before buying.
:tazz:


That is all I could find, I would first check out the chat forum and see if you can get help from someone in there, then move on from there just to see what it could cost to fix the door.

GOOD LUCK! Sorry, that was all I could come up with...

But let me know if you found anything out... ;)
