I solved the problem! Open the video cassette door. Look closely at the gear mechanism and see if there is any small debris in the gears. If not, using a magnifying glass and a paper clip(must stretch it out and use the tip) gently move each gear(gently). I had my unit ON. Once I moved the gear it became unstuck and ejected Mini DV cassette. I then re-inserted the cassette and it worked. The dreaded SAFEGAURD MODE message was gone and it is as good as new.

The mechanism is out of sync, put a tape in and hold it, it wont go in but will try to open don't let it, remove the battery and reattach, let the tape eject, rinse and repeat 3 or 4 times and it will finally accept the tape.
