Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV740 Digital Camcorder
There are 2 heads in the recorder. One for reading (playing) and
the other for writing (recording). 1st try cleaning these heads
using a Squab (Q tip) with a alcohol based cleaning solution (Radio Shack). Always rub the squab on the head in the direction the tape would follow, not perpendicular.

the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.
send it in for repair.

Check the following link. Call them and explain the symptoms and they
should send shipping label to you so you can send the camcorder in for
repair. I had my TRV38 repaired in about 2 weeks. Good luck.
