    I have the same problem. tape plays for about 4 secs then screen displays "REINSERT THE CASSETTE" Same when FFor RW. I did notice a pink like powder on top of the upper drum, Since realised the flap that protects the cassette has been rubbing the top of the Drum, Double checked the seating of the cassete mechanism which seems fine.

    Any ideas to solution or is this a manufacturering defact?

    Tapes im using are the original sony cassette's that came with the cam.

An "L" keeps flashing on my display and I cannot

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (What is your model number please?)
That L is a child lock function. Try holding down the Air/heat dry button for more than 4 seconds. When the L stops flashing you should be able to hit pause/cancel and then start your next cycle. If this does NOT work... I need your model number so I can get you the correct procedures.

How to connect Sony CCD-TRV238E Hi-8 to pc

With the camcorder you should have a lead with a small (3.5mm) jack plug at one end (connects to the camcorder) and at the other end three phono plugs (red/yellow/white).

These can be plugged into either your TV, dvd/video recorder or, IF you have the card in your PC a video input card.

I'm guessing that you probably won't have the card in the PC (on the back of the PC would be two or three phono inputs) in which case you would need to install a card or use an external capture device such as Dazzle (link below).

If you have a dvd recorder (under the TV) these have the inputs you need and can burn direct to DVD but you can't edit the film.

Hope I've not confused you too much
