Normally these small squares in picture shows error in Tracking and can be set by tape Path adjustments. In some cases, Cassette Mechanism needs to be replaced. Need further info, please let me know.

My sony dcr-vx2100 has a problem. while recording the camera will display cassette cleaning yellow icon. this messes up recording process. what should I do?


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

If you are able to access the menu and see that on your screen, the go into the LCD settings to adjust the levels. If that doesn't work you may need to reset your camera to see if that fixes the problem. Look at your manual for proper instructions.

If the problem still persists then I'd send it in for repair.
