May be a stupid suggestion but check the slide lock on the cartridge to make sure it is in the record position. 
'Night vision' is a term applied too loosely; it originally referred to the original 'starlight' scope that uses a special tube capable of actually amplifying light particles (photons).  More recently, the phrase has been applied to devices capable of 'seeing' into the infra-red spectrum. Since too much IR sensitivity affects the quality of any digital camera, the sensors are normally designed to be less sensitive to that wavelength.
The fact that none of the specifications mentions the minimum usable light level is bothersome. Most digital cameras (and camcorders) have 2-3 lux ratings which is not in the category of 'night vision' at all.

    If you have already tried with another cassette and gotten the same results, then the sensor (which could be optical or mechanical) is malfunctioning.
    About the only thing left you might do, is check the sensor's location in the deck to see if it has some obstruction causing the problem.
    You should be able to find its location by looking in the area occupied by the slide window for a recessed LED/photodetector or a mechanical finger that is used for sensing.
    I think it will be the former LED/photodetector.


    Beyond that, it isn't likely that any user can fix the problem.

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.
