    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.

Problem with sony ccd tvr208

CCD-TRV208E is analog Sony Handycam and I think tape was recorder on Digital Handycam.
Digital handyacam model starts with letters DCR-xxx so locate a digital handycam to get tape recordings.
I got this idea when you said, only getting crackling noise and blue screen.

Regarding rewind problem

The mechanism is to be replaced.
Before this check the TG assemblies for any deformation.
Then check the reel table also for any defects.
We provide spare parts for all kinds of SONY and Pansonic Models.

Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.

I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.
