Camcorder won't eject


Active Member
I have a sony DCR-HC14E with a tape stuck in it.
When I try to eject the tape, the tray moves out, but does not pop up, then moves back in. It plays OK, but will not come out, any suggestions?

TRY THIS: Open the tape door on the bottom. LEAVE IT OPEN. Power off your camcorder and remove the battery. With the battery removed, move the power switch to ON. LEAVING THE POWER ON AND THE TAPE DOOR OPEN, replace the battery. The tape should eject without damage.

Got this off the net when I had the same problem and it worked for me!

Best of luck:thumbsup:
