Reinsert casette tape

My handycam is 3 years old and i didn't seem to have a problem with it until now. I cannot take a video nor see the video that i took as a certain beeping sound comes out and the phrase " re insert casette tape" prompts. Is the camcorder's tape head dirty or something? Please help!

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Casette problems


To blank the whole tape, put the lens cap on the camera, then run the whole tape through on "record." Presto, blank tape.

I load my whole tape into a video editing program on my computer and delete the parts I don't want from the program.

If you can capture it on the computer using a capture software, you can then burn the footage onto a dvd burner using a dvd burning software.
