Re: turn off "protection"

This seems to be an on going problem with all of the Samsung models sooner or later. 1st, check to make sure the protection tab on top of the tape is in record mode. Remove battery, wait a minute and replace battery, turning on the camera, place tape back into camera and close the door. If this does not work, the sensor is not reading that the tape is not protected. It is a service call but not worth the 150-195 in repairs to correct. Sometimes you just need to keep going, and going....

turn the camcorder off, take out the tape, look for the protection tab on the side of the tape and switch it to the other side.

protection is a feature of your tape to keep you from taping over important videos saved in your tape

Samsung VP -D103i

If your camera uses video tapes, they have a little sliding piece on the back to stop you accidently recording on an important tape you want to keep. Slide it over for 'save' to 'rec' and you can record on it.

Protection! Flashes on screen

This camera has a history of the flexible harness located on the cassette housing tearing when it rubs against the frame as the housing moves in and out. The harness tears and opens the circuit that detects the tapes record lockout tab, the camera is preventing you from recording on the tape in error. This repair requires replacemnent of the cassette housing, not for the faint of heart. I wish you luck. Joe Weibel
