You need to check the small switch on the tape and switch it the other way.

Tape doesn't stay down, keeps popping back out of cassette, on my Sony CCD-TVR608. Any ideas?


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.

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.

How do I erase a tape alreday recoreded so that I can reuse the tape?


Before you insert the already recorded tape make sure you close off the small square hole with the moveable tab(often green or red colored).After inserting the tape rewind it to the point where you want to start reusing the tape ,set in camera mode and hit the record button .

My samsung mini DV camera SC-D372 keeps flashing "Protection" on the playback screen


turn the camcorder off, take out the tape, look for the protection tab on the side of the tape and switch it to the other side.

protection is a feature of your tape to keep you from taping over important videos saved in your tape

Problem when Trying to record


Hi,

If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position.

Always "Check Tape's Erase Protection Tab"


Turn the power off and back on again while the tape is in the player.

Do you have another tape to try to see it it's still doing it?
