I can't believe it.....i had this "reinsert the casette" problem ever since my wife dropped it Haloween night, 2007...
but after taking the battery out, smacking it on top with my palm 6 hard times, its working!!!
this idea really works....i hope forever!
if you want to verify this actually works, email me: email@example.com

I'm a believer... you were all nuts for a little bit... however... smacking it in the exact spot, and reseting the camera does work! Thanks!

I removed my battery and it didn't help,
i pressed and held the reset button,
it didn't help.
after that i hit it three times at the top near the night shot plus, nothing.
then i took out the tape and hit it three more times. it reset and i had to put in the date and time and walah it works again.

SAME PROBLEM - SAME SOLUTION.
No #2. FANTASTIC CURE!
Why isn't it in user manual troubleshooter??
I used my 10 years old Nokia 3110 to spare my hands. 3 slams - peace of cake.
Don't use this cure for your camera too often too hard.
Overdose brings side effects and complications.
Contact spray can do a lot if you know where and how to use it..
Otherwise, ask someone qualified.

If you see a number appearing at the right corner of the lcd like the following..c31:23/c31:22 for reel sensor,c31:30 for the capstan motor responsible for playing/rewinding/forwarding its the one that moving the tape,c31:40 for the drum assembly at the center of the mechanism...sometimes all of these problem is poor connection at the socket on the main board.
