First I would suspect the record safety switch on the cassette. Look near one of the rear corners for a little red tab. If it's closed (covering the hole), then recording is disabled on that cassette.
Is there any indication in the viewfinder that recording is disabled? Usually an icon like indicator showing a cassette with a circle and slash over it.

If that's not the case, you might have a problem with you're record switch. Try using the remote to do it if you have one.

No display on playback


Try first a Tape cleaner and a new cassette and start from scratch... and check if your camera is not damaged internally and it is actually recording and not just spining the tape to the end and rewind to find nothing on it. You seem to need serious repair. This means it needs a tech to have a serious look at it.
