Mine is in safe mode 3 too and it won't go away. It's over a year old and not worth $$$ to fix. It's time to move up to a HD hard drive video. I suggest you too.

Poor contact of drum motor connection(flexi found at the upper part of the drum assy). Solution, disconnect this wire from the connector and cut 1mm from the end so that it will make a new contact. WIre will be shortened a little bit but it still can work this way since this flexi can not be ordered alone, it comes complete with the whole drum assy. Good Luck

Cassette not being ejected


I have this same problem but the cassette tray will not go in. Error 1 "safe mode". I jiggled the mechanism beside the rubber "guide" ( in the middle above the drum) and it works now!! It must be some sort of sensor??

Try to put the camera on default settings without using battery, that is using power adapter, do this 2 to 3 times, it will solve your problem.
