Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

When turning on to vcr or camera, camera beeps repeatly


Sounds like the camera ATE THE TAPE will not eject,fastforward, or rewind.. This will need to be repaired , worse case a belt slipped or something got misalligned inside, I would recommend a camera shop so you can save the tape otherwise digging into this yourself could stirr up more issues in the long run. Please do be considerate of facts here that we cannot see your unit and this error is because the tape got ATE or something got jammed.

Thanks please do leave some feedback and ratings for your free answer today.

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Sony ccd trv218e, recording & playing back does'nt work


I had that problem also and I found that using smaller tapes helped. I was using the 120 minute tapes, I think they may be too heavy.

Cannot record or play


The C31:22 message indicates that one of the motors inside has failed to turn. This is a safety message and the unit will eject the tape to prevent the tape from getting damaged. Unfortunately, there is little that you can do other than get the unit into a service shop. The repair of this will require dis-assembly of the unit. I would suggest that you either get an estimate for the repair or send the unit to Sony using one of their fixed rate repair options.

Tape will not eject


If you open the eject thingy like normal then look for a small white plastic tap. its located right underneath the "start/stop" text you see on the back end of the camera (where the record-button is). You´ll need something like a small screwdriver or similar. Press it and and the tape ejects like normal. Worked for me. Saved me the repair bill :)

Cannot play tape nor record on tape


This error is a mechanical malfunction, try this:
 
  1. Eject the tape.
  2. Set to OFF.
  3. Detach the battery.
  4. Reattach the battery.

High pitched noise, then ejects tape


Hi friends. (Excuse my poor English). Well, i bought a SCD364 Samsung CamCoder that is physically and mechanically exactly as scd363. My scd364 also have the same problem. Because the warranty has expired, i discovered a solution. The problem ocurs due to a missing calibrati?n at tape motion mechanism then when the cam goes heat, the motor grazes with another part of the mechanism that this located very near (wax)causing a metallic noise, eating the battery and, finally the blinking "D" eject signal. I amazing when discovered that the solution is to open the tape compartment and place the opened camera infront of the air conditioning machine by 2 minutes in order to cool it. Once cold, the camera is ready to play or record again without noise and blinking "D".
