I have a HC, thee tape door dont close. So glad I found this site, had same problems with my Sony Handycam, tape door wouldn’t close and giving error message and saying needed to connect power even though it had full battery and I had also plugged power cable in. Plugged the power supply back in and it ejected the tape. This problem is clearly designed into the product. It’s cool to see how it started back in and stretches all the way up until just recently.

Once it slides down a bit, fire it up and bam After that, it worked sony dcr-ip7e. I left the door open and the battery died on me.
I have noticed that i only get this problem when both battery and charger are hooked up or when the camera runs only sony dcr-ip7e charger power without the battery. Couldn’t work on it until I got back home.
I used a c cell batery with two probes form my voltage meter and was able to move the door back into position. Thankyou to all sony dcr-ip7e posted solutions, in particular the posts re battery to the motor. The camcorder can react now only to the external battery.

Cris Wed, 09 Dec This damn thing is made in Japan. It worked like a charm!!! dcr-ip7ee
It worked once but I had to do the procedure again. JVonD Fri, 14 Aug I sony dcr-ip7e some scotch tape to hold the tray in. I wil try this fix and will post the results sony dcr-ip7e. This problem is clearly designed into the product. I had to lower my motor with the AA battery twice before it finally took a tape, but it’s all good now. It’s amazing than something so strange works.
Special thanks to Dave and Constantine for the awesome directions to get the door to close on my sony dcr-ip7e. The following day it was fixed and sony dcr-ip7e back to me. In this case, disconnect all power sonyy the camera, reverse the application of wires on the tape-tray motor and the tape tray dce-ip7e it outwards 1 mm.
But then the error-code came back Sony dcr-ip7e led me to believe that it is a sny problem which may be an inherent design fault.
With the other end I tried to get the motor moving. Sony dcr-ip7e you to Dave and Constantine!!!!
