SOURCE: check rec tab keeps popping up

Ok, I've had this issue for some time now ... and just figured it out, hopefully your issue will be the same.

If you pop out the tape you are trying to record to. Look at the top, there is a small tab on one of the corners that will allow or prevent recording on the tape depending on which way it is positioned. If you slide it open the tape is locked for recording, if you close it, you can record. Try that and see if the problem goes away.....

SOURCE: check rec tab

A nice easy one. Eject your tape and look for the record lock on the cassette. It's usually a small plastic red tab which you slide to one side. The record will then work.

It's put there to stop you mistakingly record over the top of something you want to keep. Just make sure it's nor something you want to keep before recording over it :-)

SOURCE: I have a Panasonic

On the cassette shell is a small sliding door that prevents recording, move it to the record position.
The idea is to protect a valuable tape from being recorded over.

I have a panasonic handycam. It shows an error which says Check Record Tab on startup. Because of this error i cannot use the handycam. Please suggest any solutions


Hi,

The record tab is usually on the tape itself and is usually red in colour.
If you slide the tab to the open position and then reinsert the tape it should allow you to record.



Regards.
