When start my handycame of Sony DCR 285 E some time dysplay a slogan reinsart cassette.

This can be due to few issue and what could be checked by you is to look if the cassette is properly loading. Check if there is any objects blocking within the carriage. Also if the cassette hass any issues, try with another one.
Next check if the set is having condensation and so gives out the error message of a protect. So use a hair dryer into the cassette compartment and into the drum section.
Finally a fault in the servo or the loading can issue a fault condition.

Cylinder error (F05) usally caused by poor/oxidised contacts on cylinder drive fpc cable to pcb, sometimes caused by seized cylinder or drive.
The cylinder is the round thing that the tape wraps around that has the heads to record to tape, just in case you didn't know.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...

Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated

Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

NV-DS55B panasonic digital video camera.

Exactly the same problem as everyone else. There's bound to be someone who can offer advice on what to do. The camera obviously recognises the fault as F05, but where can you reference the remedy to this F05 code? It's not in the manual as far as I can see

Red light flashes

First go to this link; Type in NV-MX7 in the search box And select the correct version of the NV-MX7 that you have you will be able to download a user manual which will hopefully tell you how to deal with the problem. If you have no luck finding a solution in there then please post back with the model version and I can hopefully help (all the versions have some different fault indication lights) and differences in the tape loading system. Hope this helps - please post back with model details :)
