I am unable to insert a tape into my camera. I have tried old and new, tried charging my battery, using a new battery, but to no avail. I am able to open and close the cassette door without a tape in it but as soon as i insert a cassette the machine will beep at me as it tries to close and then open out again.
Please Help! I really want to use my video camera again!
Hope someone out there has a solution , i will try everything!
This just happened to me today, apparently in my case it has something to do with condensation inside the camera, I don't know if this applies to you but at the moment I have the cassette slot open and in the sun, hopefully it will help, two hours apparently should do it. Give it a go, it can't hurt, I wouldn't put the actual cassette in direct sunlight though, so make sure you take that out.
Hope this Helps

actually this error is related to s reel i.e, the supply reel of the camcorder and some time when we insert a new tape in camcorder it start giving the error because the amount of tension is more in new tapes as compared to the old ones (used one) . . try to use the old tape u would nt have any problem .
but with new tape u will have these kinds of problem some times , to solve this problem for new tape u need to take the camcorder to near by service center of sony .nd they will align the tape path of your camcorder .
make sure the camera internal battery is charged. using the ac charger plug the camera in for 24 hours. if the internal battery is dead then you will need to turn it in and have it replaced. that is why is says reinsert the tape
Have you all tried using a new battery? It happened to me before where I would try and load the tape and the motor just hung and wouldn't allow the tape to fully go in. I tried to recharge the battery to see if that was the problem and even left it plugged in but camcorder appeared to still be weak. I think went to Wolf's camera and asked if I may if a bigger batter would feel weird with my current camcorder (I just said that so I could see if I could borrow a new battery and see if it would fix the problem). When I installed the new battery, it loaded the tape with no problems.
the fault is caused either by the take up or supply reel in the camera they are not rotating when the tape is inserted.maybe A defective tape or hung reel brake can cause this issue.or maybe a bad loosen guide of the tape path is lame , Try replacing the tape, if this does not resolve the problem you may need to seek professional service to have the reels checked.
thanx and plz try to rate and remember i am here just to help u
Loading unit problem is a common mechanical problem in camcorders. To remedy the problem, trained tech need to disassemble the mechanical system around the loading and replace few broken gears (plastics) and adjust it. Repair cost may run close to half of the new camcorder. If you really got to repair this camera for some sentimental reason or for special needs otherwise better to invest the repair charge into a new camcorder.
