Question about Sony CCD-TRV138 Camcorder
Every time I try toload a tape I get a reinsert tape message sometimes I can ff or rr for a second or even play but then the dreaded message reappers
I got the dreaded reinsert tape message today and i thouht that my video taping days were over. i then made my way to this page and saw this. whack it three or four times and it will work. at first i thought what a load of crap but i tried it anyways... being really mad at the time, i showed my camera no mercy. i took out the tape and gave it 4 hard hits with my palm, put the tape back in and it worked. thanks alot, this works

These error code means that there is a problem with the take up reel. The tape up reel is responsible for "taking up the tape slack" as the tape is running. Try resetting the camcorder. This is done by removing the battery or ac power, wait 10 seconds, reapply the battery or ac power and try again. however..seems this usually happens when the tape has run out of time whilst recording, you have changed the tape....and your re-inserting the tape again for transfer trying to rewind it correct?.....either way, pull the battery off, have the power chord ready plugged in as the only power source, close the tape door...and just as it loads pull the power chord out as you just hear it try to wind up....then wait a few seconds, (your on switch is in VTR or VCR mode......quickly put the power chord back into the camera and repeatedly overide the commands by hitting the << REW button or FFW>> the camera should have bypassed the error alert and start winding the tape....just let it wind the tape for about 20 seconds...hit stop....pless PLAY > you should have normal function again. and go to where you wanted the tape to be.

The reel sensor might be the problem and indicate c31:23?....if you can open your camera try this....pull the wiring of the sensor at the socket at back it again...
