Question about Cameras
Hi there, Guy,
1. Take the tape out of your sony camcorder.
2. From the tape cartridge, somewhere on the top corner, look for a little tab which is most likely to be open. If that is open, it wont let you record, thus the error.
3. Move or slide the tab to close the position.
4. Gently put the tape back inside your camcorder and try again.
Goodluck and hope this helps.

This generally indicates that the tape you are using is write protected by a small tab on the tape. To unlock it simply slide it to the unlocked position. If this does not work then try another tape first and if this still does not work then take a look inside the tape compartment of the camera to ensure that the is no debris covering the small arm that jumps into the tab slot on the tape when it is inser5ted. It is fairly common for this to happen. Any debris should be carefully removed with a cotton bud that has been wetted with isopropyl alcohol - do not use surgical spirit as this contains oil and will leave an undesirable residue.
