Re: Cannot play tape nor record on tape

This error is a mechanical malfunction, try this:

  1. Eject the tape.
  2. Set to OFF.
  3. Detach the battery.
  4. Reattach the battery.

I have a Sony Digital Camera TRV 250 that i have not used in a couple years. When i try to turn it on, no message appears on the screen.. everything looks normal. but when i put a tape in, no time...

yes you can fix it your self,that is if you have another play head.before changing the cylinder you can try cleaning it with a clean white paper,note you need to be careful while cleaning with paper

Has error

It's a supply reel fault. I kid you not, the cure is to give it a REASONABLY FORCEFUL open-handed slap on the tape side. it may take a couple of tries but it works about 95% of the time.

Screen has error message and won't play tape. What is wrong?

This message appears when the loading tape path become misaligned (mechanically unstable). Your camera just need mechanical adjustment from any expert and it will work fine again. Contact any service man for this.
Thanks for using fixya.

Lines through the tape when recording or playing back

It could need a head adjustment. Any camera store can do that for you.
