No problem the camera is telling you to use tape head cleaner before trying to record more movies that all.

Every time I insert the tape, the screen says "Reinsert the tape"


make sure the camera internal battery is charged. using the ac charger plug the camera in for 24 hours. if the internal battery is dead then you will need to turn it in and have it replaced. that is why is says reinsert the tape

HDR-HC1 Sony camcorder- reinsert the cassette error message


Bill,

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

Reinsert cassette


Turn the unit off and hit the back of the camera twice near the battery compartment with the palm of your hand. Sounds crazy but it worked with my camcorder Sony DCR-TRV480. Problem started when I used 8MM Head Cleaner. I think the roller got stuck inside camcorder. The trouble code came up C:31:22. Hope this helps.

"reinsert tape" message


I can't believe it. I tried hitting the camcorder on the battery side, directly on the battery with the palm of my hand and it worked for about 5 seconds. THEN I hit it against a wood table on the battery side and it is now working. I guess my first hit with the palm was not hard enough.
