Ok great, thank you!!
SONY MODEL NO HVR-Z5N
Digital HD Video Camera
Sorry, just noticed - Sony HVR-Z5N
No, it does not show any flashing lights or any error code. The camera works perfectly normal. When I switch it off, it will actually open the tape holder for a tape to be inserted. Once I close it, it just stays there. Nothing happens. It's not loading the tape.
Unfortunately the tape mechanism is just staying there, even switching off the camera and waiting for 5 minutes or even longer.
Yes, that is what we've done also. We've removed the battery and let it stand over night. No response.
Hi Shahid, any other suggestion?
It just opens automatically when re-inserted the battery ;-)
Should I leave it open?
No, you don't understand, this is working. When I close it, it just stay there. This part is working fine. When I push the tape holder back, it just stay there. It does not load the tape.
Shahid, any other suggestions? I even now tried to put in a tape and see if it will load. But also the same problem.
The camera is only flashing the no tape sign.
