When I try to record the screen says 'check tapes erase protection tab'


Normally, tape cartridges have a protection tab on them that when removed prevents users from recording over. A piece of masking tape over the empty hole will allow you to record on the cassette.

I get " check tape


I Think the cable you mean is a Fire wire cable.

Camera's and tapes, I take it its a mini DV tape movie camera.

Assuming so, on the spine of the DV cassette there's a small plastic slider, open = protect, close = write. I can only think of this as being the issue.

If it is a software problem, to be honest, wouldn't even copy to PC, I'd copy to a dvd recorder with a hard drive, edit it there then burn to dvd.

It sounds like you are talking about a VHS tape look at the lower left corner of the tape as you are putting it into the vcr there should be a small square hole there with the tab broken off put a piece of scotch tape over this hole it will than let you record on the tape again

Can't get the timer record to set. The tape ejects when I turn TV off. There is some trick and I do not have the manual to figure it out.


Try a new tape, or put a piece of tape over the hole found in the back of the tape you are using. If the record safety tab is still present it may be bent. A piece of tape will rectify this too.
The tab is there to protect the tape from being recorded over by accident. If removed or bent slightly, the vcr will detect it and will not record on the tape.
Most VCRs will eject the tape, or show some kind of error message.

When i try to start shooting a video,a message is displayed on the screen saying:the tape is locked-check the tab.


The message is telling you that the tape you are using has had the write protect tab removed. This is done to keep from taping over something you want to keep. Try onother tape.
If you know this is not the peoblem (like a new tape) you could hav a problem with the camera

Tape doesn't stay down, keeps popping back out of cassette, on my Sony CCD-TVR608. Any ideas?


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Always "Check Tape's Erase Protection Tab"


Turn the power off and back on again while the tape is in the player.

Do you have another tape to try to see it it's still doing it?

Make sure the little red tab on top of the tape is set to record and not save. The camcorder will not let you record it its set to save
