Check the tape carefuly. on the flat side of the cassette that faces upwards when you insert the cassette in the camera there is a 'record protect' switch which is coloured red. if it has completely covered the hole then it is in the 'save position' .in that case you wont be able to record.to record , flip the switch outwards with your finger nail. it should now expose the small hole. you are now set to record. please make sure that you set the mode select switch on the camera to 'camera' position.

I have an nostalgic music combo model #9397. All the components -turntable cassette radio cd work. But it won't record in any mode. Any ideas?


I'm assuming you mean the cassette won't record?

At the top of a cassette are two slots - one either side of it. If these are open then the record button can't be pressed. You can cover them with sticky tape to allow recording. If these are not open and you can't record, then sometimes the lever that presses against them is bent or broken stopping recording.

Hi, I have Sony TRV238E HI8 Camera recorder. When I in play/edit mode, only have blue screen on the LCD with counter to and other parameters . In this mode if I move the tape Rew. or FF I have regular...


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the issue is with the dirt in the Video Head of the Camcorder. You can try using new Hi8 tapes for recording the videos to check if they are playing back normally. If the audio is working normally in the Camcorder, then the issue is with the dirt on the video head. If the issue persists with all the tapes, then the video head can be cleaned using a dry Video Head Cleaner Cassette. You can purchase the cassette from the Sony Authorized dealers or from the local electronics store. Please make sure that the cleaning cassette is compatible with the Camcorder.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Recording stopped working


Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Problem with deck B on Pioneer CT-W205R


Better tape decks, like Pioneer, may use a different mechanism for record/play than FF & REW. So it sounds like a belt or mechanical link for the REC/PLAY has failed.

Foot pedal


If you cannot play, rewind or fast forward, but you hear a light "click" coming from the cassette compartment, then more than likely you have a broken drive belt, or the circuit controlling the play and/or rewind/ff mechanisms are out. In either case it sounds like you need to send it in or take it somewhere for repair.
