Question about Philips Televison & Video
Does the tape play normally? Does this happen with several tapes when you try to record? Check the record protect tab on the lower left hand side on the facing end of the tape. If this is broken or bent it will not record, you can put a piece of tape tightly across the tab as a repair

Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.
