Dcr-vx2000 green viewfinder

My camera shows a green viewfinder and records green to tape. Looks like it is set to a night vision setting but I don't think the camera has such a setting???

Error message; has something to do with insertion of tape. Looks like triangle over straight line. beeps and blinks, will not play. Working when loaned to a "friend", returned in this condition...

Will it record on a new tape? Will it play a different tape? Have had a similar problem with a different camera. Think it had to do with the record mode / play back. A bit like standard play and long play - are there setting like that you could change?

Cannot shoot picture

The mode switch (off/play/record) is a weak point on many digital cameras. It is likely that yours needed to be replaced.
