My husband was able to fix the problem. It turns out that the sensor switch was jammed. He used a piece of duct tape to block the signal while putting in a tape. The tape went in and still worked after he removed the duct tape. I have recorded and played a tape, so all is well right now.

Red light blinking won't accept tape


If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

The tape wont come out and i get the message unit is safeguard mode. How can I eject the mini dv tape


Ok, if the unit is in safeguard mode it thinks it has been dropped. since it is giving the message it is getting through the boot sequence to that so you are close to the answer. taking out the batery and attempting to turn it on will reset the sensor. then replacing a fresh battery will get you to a place where an undamaged unit will ejct the tape. A damaged tape mechanism will still not functin and you will need a VCR service place to replace the drive mechanism to get it going (Broken drive belt is causing the lockdown.

Hi, Ihave a C:21:00 symbol in my screen...and another one look like a water drop....I can't put my cassette inside the machine...what can I do ???? Thank's Isabelle


The water drop is a condensation warning- the camera has sensed damp in the works. Damp will cause the tape to stick and get tangled in the transport mechanism, so you need to dry the camera (and tapes) out thoroughly before proceeding. Leave them in a warmish dry place for a day or so- longer if needed.

My panasonic dvx 100b is from 2004. it's always worked great but now when I put in a new tape the first 5 minutes or so the audio does not record consistantly. It drops out over and over then its fine.
