Question about Sony HVR-A1U Camcorder
I opened the door one day and it slid up, the door opened, I put the tape in and closed the door but it would not slide back into place. How do I fix that and how much should i expect to pay
Ake out the card and see if the pins inside the camera aren't bent. If not, make sure you are inserting the CF card into the camera's slot correctly. It should slide in smoothly with little resistance at the end. The door should close if the CF card goes in correctly. If not, something is terribly wrong. If you can't find an authorized Canon service center, go back to the store you bought the digital hd video camera from. They may be able to help you there.

I have a Sony DCR-HC28 handycam. The door will not auto close after loading the tape. I am getting an Error C32 11.
Have tried the suggestions IE turn off power, then turn back on etc, to no avail.

This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
