First of all try changing another tape.... since you say that you have already slid the tab to record but yet it still shows the same problem.... that makes me believe that the tape could be the culprit here but if you have already tried a different tape..... try putting a memory stick in and switch modes to memory card, then in the menu you maybe able to take the camera out of the protection mode. if the memory card mode too still gives you the same problem..... then there would be problem with the transport mechanism and it would need replacement

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.

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.

Protection! Flashes on screen


This camera has a history of the flexible harness located on the cassette housing tearing when it rubs against the frame as the housing moves in and out. The harness tears and opens the circuit that detects the tapes record lockout tab, the camera is preventing you from recording on the tape in error. This repair requires replacemnent of the cassette housing, not for the faint of heart. I wish you luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Turn off "protection"


This seems to be an on going problem with all of the Samsung models sooner or later. 1st, check to make sure the protection tab on top of the tape is in record mode. Remove battery, wait a minute and replace battery, turning on the camera, place tape back into camera and close the door. If this does not work, the sensor is not reading that the tape is not protected. It is a service call but not worth the 150-195 in repairs to correct. Sometimes you just need to keep going, and going....

I can't start recording.


# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
