I have the same problem!

Apparently their is a ribbon cable on the tape drive mechanism that tore because of samsung's crappy design that ribbon cable sends a signal form the tape protection switch.

Since the ribbon is torn and the circuit open the camera thinks the protection on the tape is on

if any one knows where i can buy samsung parts, please let me know

WHEN I PUT MY JVC GR-D770U IN VIDEO MODE TO RECORD VIDEOS, AN ERROR MESSAGE IS DISPLAYED THAT SAYS, "CHECK TAPE PROTECTION TAB". HOW DO I TAKE CAMERA OFF PROTECTION MODE SO I CAN RECORD VIDEOS?


Mini-DV tapes have a small physical switch on them to protect the contents from being overwritten. It is probably just that this switch is set, not 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.

Problem when Trying to record


Hi,

If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position.

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
