Sony camcorder, cassette won't load in

Specs: no idea
I got used Sony Handycam a year ago, and it worked fine.
But last time when i got cassette out (to change for fresh one), i couldn't get another one in. Camera keeps 'spitting' it out. It closes fine without cassette.
I suspect there could be something on the way when cassette is in, but i don't really know what. Any suggestions?

Have you tried different cassettes to make sure it's not just a bad one? If it still does it on multiple cassettes, it's either time to take it in for repair or retire it.

I think those camcorder cassettes load like VCR tapes. VCR's use infrared sensors to determine if a tape is in. If one of the sensors is bad they often spit the tape back out. That might be the problem with yours.
