Sony EVO 9850 error messages

When I load a tape and hit play I get an error 20. I cant get it to play. I tried what the other post suggested and no luck. Now I am getting an error 90 as soon as I power up.
This was a great machine and is in great condition  except it doesnt work :).
I would like to fix it so I can dump all my Hi 8 footage to a drive and then I plan to sell it.
Any ideas about where I can get the deck at a resonable rate? I am in the SF bay area.
Thank you Aarin

Sony HVR-A1U "Reinsert Cassette" Error pops up frequently


I have had this error on my 3 year old Sony A1E and it has resulted in glitched picture and audio, despite not showing a poblem whilst recording. It came up with C:31:23 error. Start of the tape seemed ok and the end seemed to get pixellated. A friend said the PD170 had the same issue and had to have her tape heads changed. I've tried cleaning mine but problem still there. I'm looking at getting new NXCAM as I've spent a lot of money last year getting it fixed.

Sony evo 9850 error code 20


From what i've read an Error-20 on a Sony BSP deck is a tape transport problem. Someone with the same error code (on a BSP model) said the actual tape loading mechanism was bad and they had to replace the hardware inside the machine that loads and ejects the cassette.

Unable to load tape


Hi,
according to the symptom you don't need reset, This problem is related to the loading tape path which is mechanically unstable, that's why problem arise, For your convenience please see the given below pic of SELF DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM to understand better.

Sony Handycam Digital 8: won't accept tape


I was having the exact same problem with my sony handycam. I actually came across this website looking for the answer and noticed many people having the same problem but there was no solution to it.

I just happened to go to the sony website and decided to watch the tutorial on setting the camera back to the factory settings. It actually fixed the problem! I don't know if this will work for everyone or even how long it will work, but I figured it was worth a try. Good luck!

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
