Cannot playback minidv in VTR mode with pd100

Hello, I turned my sony PD100 on and it is fine. But as soon as I put in the mini dv, I cannot playback the footage. There is C:31:40 that flashes on the top right corner and this mini triangle with a line under it (like a sideways "pause" sign)that also flashes in the middle. What do I have to do to play my stuff back?

    Same for me. I had this fault before, a few years back, and I can't remember what the repair guy did.

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Can not connect mini dv to computer via ieee1394 cable - he is not recognize the dcrpc120e sony

Make sure that the camera and the computer are both turned off. Put camera in the playback mode and turn off.
Turn camera and computer on at the same time and open your editing software. The software should then recognize the camera. Press play on the camera and capture on the software screen at the same time.

My dads camera has a triangle on it and its beeping instead of playing.

Check the mode settings. Make sure it is in playback for playback(vtr) operatioin and standard videotaping modes otherwise. Check the manual.
