If u look in ur manual it tells u that its a self-diagnosis code!
Step 1: eject the casset and then put it back in record something
step 2:disconnect the power cord of the AC adapror or remove the battery.
step 3: reconect the power or battry and record
step 4: Replace the casset!

thats a breakdown of the manuals instructions

hope this helps
