Haha, yes finally what a pOS!, But I got it!!
So I got to thinking well the sensor or something be messed up a bit. I found that the cover a very slight amount of play.
So hell , I put a C clamp on it. I started to record. Sweet, it worked!!! The cover was stuck so the sensor wasn't tripping.
Well that worked, but I didn;t want a c clamp on my camera all the time, so I had some Automotive Amazing Goop,
I lined the cover edges with the sealent and let it dry. Now when I close it , it stays closed and records without a problem.
The only thing is its tuff to open, I use a skrew driver, or small nail.
But it was unusable before, and at least I can use it.

Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for minute, reattach battery/ power source and close the tape door.
If that does not solve problem then I'm afraid, tape mechanism got defective and will be replaced.
Let me know if you need tape mechanism part number info.

When you open the door you will see 2 metal tabs that are sensors to that are pushed by 2 plastic tabs on the door that push on the metal tabs to let the camera know the door is shut. For whatever reason these tabs are not pushed up enough and I triggered them by sticking something in there to make contact. I used the end of a toothpick for now. May be primative but it works for now and I may look for a method to make it permanant but at least my camera works now

win vista and win 7doesn't support usb streaming. the usb driver for this model would not be compatible with your computer's OS. although, you were able to download PMB still this wouldn't work, it's basically an alternative software that you can use with the newer OS. still the device driver would not be installed. and you would get a message that "ilink connection is not detected". the reason you get that is bec the camcorder and the software is intended for use with the dv (ilink or ieee1394) connection. so if your computer has an ieee1394 card and you have a compatible ilink cable,then your good to go,it should be a plug-and-play connection (no drivers required). all you need then would be a video capturing software (like win moviemaker) to transfer videos from tape to PC. hope this helps. thanks :)
