Re: flashing protection, icon ..R

Mine was doing exactly the same, driving me nuts... Finally, I was trying EVERYTHING, and went into the menu and set the clock and date. I put the tape in, pressed it down where it says to press, the tape loaded normally and As oddball nuts as it sounds, it immediately began to work like normal. I havn't been able to get it to do anything but eject and flash that stupid "R", for months. Hope it helps...

I have a samsung digital camcorder model v.p d101 lost instructions

You can download it here:- .You will see the correct download button just below the label 'Download Samsung VP-D101 User manual' which is over halfway down the page. You will need to enter the code number shown a bit smudged in the picture, then wait for about 30 sec countdown and click 'try again' if nothing happens after a few moments. It will take a minute or so to download the manual as a PDF file which you can then save on your PC.
