I have recorded two casettes with DCR TRV480. In midst of recording the 1st cassette, I got this flashing reinsert cassette issue. I removed the battery and put it back on and the problem disappeared and I was able to complete the recording. While recording the second cassette, I again got the same proble. This time removing the battery did not help. I was unable to complete the recording on the 2nd tape leaving unused space. While trying to play it on TV, I am getting the same problem with the two cassettes and even with an earlier cassette (which I had played earlier). When I insert a new cassette the problem does seem to appear. I need help as I am unable to play any recorded cassettes!!! any input would be really welcome.

SOURCE: Cassette load issue
reel table on the right ( take - up ) if has low tension ? will slow down or stop , giving reinsert error : stretching spring ( inside reel table ) will fix problem , as well as to order and replace reel table .
