Inserted a cassette, get the message "cannot record cassette" "protect tab". A little grey piece (probably the protect tab) fell out the camera when I set it down. Not sure where this...

On the mini-DV tapes I have, the protect tab is a slider- it does not come out of the cassette. If you look at the back edge of the tape, where the long label goes, the protect tab is at the right hand end. When it is set to prevent recording it will look like a little square hole, but there should be a tiny edge of the tab showing (mine is green) which you can pull across with a fingernail or sharp object to cover the hole and allow recording.

When i try to start shooting a video,a message is displayed on the screen saying:the tape is locked-check the tab.

The message is telling you that the tape you are using has had the write protect tab removed. This is done to keep from taping over something you want to keep. Try onother tape.
If you know this is not the peoblem (like a new tape) you could hav a problem with the camera

I have not used my handycam for a few months, and now it does not record. Push rec button and nothing happens .The camera will take pics rewind,fast foreward and play but push record and nothing.

The camera wont go in record mode if the tape protection tab is over hole on rear of cass tape, maybe you ought to buy new tape and try again, very little goes wrong on those cameras my friend, there is nothing on market as good these days I can tell you.

My digital camera is telling me that my memory card is locked


OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.


If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

It powers on but then beeps & won't work

You need to remove write protect tab on the mini DV tape you are using in Handycam. If it still doesnt work after removing the tab then take out the tape leave the camera off for few minutes and try another tape (dont forget to remove write protect tab).

If this helps, please vote...thankyou and good luck!

Problem when Trying to record


If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position.

Make sure the little red tab on top of the tape is set to record and not save. The camcorder will not let you record it its set to save

Turn off "protection"

This seems to be an on going problem with all of the Samsung models sooner or later. 1st, check to make sure the protection tab on top of the tape is in record mode. Remove battery, wait a minute and replace battery, turning on the camera, place tape back into camera and close the door. If this does not work, the sensor is not reading that the tape is not protected. It is a service call but not worth the 150-195 in repairs to correct. Sometimes you just need to keep going, and going....
