SOURCE: Tape Cleaning on-screen warning
Have you tried using a different tape? Try using a sony tape if you've been trying with another brand. Sometimes they work only with their own, and it can just kick in. Could also have something to do with the battery. Try replacing. Do not let your Li-Ion batteries run all the way down before charging and do not charge them fully and let them sit idle. both of these things kill these types of batteries. Hope it helps

reel sensor is the problem of your camera it is a common problem to that model,maybe the pinch roller is loosen to the post cause of the lock of that is been broke..that roller is that one that pulling the tape...only a technician can put it back to the mechanism and replace that lock...in sony service they replace the whole assembly and cost a lots...i suggest find other service center for fixing it...hope that roller is not lost in your camera...

I have had this same problem several times. In all cases the problem has been a tape that has been run at the very end of it's lenght and it is too tighten. I loose the tape manually just a bit and it helps. Just be careful not to leave the tape too loose.
For loosing the tape you have to push the lock button with e.g. a pen and while doing that just take the tape out just a bit. Tape should be left at the level it was. It must not look like a loosen tape. If you get it out too much, just roll it back by twisting the reel again while pushing the lock button down.
To be able to loose the tape you of course need to open the protective lid first. For this there is a separate lock switch at the side of the cassette.

I just made contact with a service tech who seems very competent and who won me over. Have problem with video and audio dropout similiar to dirty heads on a 10 year old DCR-VX2000 but which is a larger problem attributed to worn parts which will need replacement. Do not know how old your unit is, but will share name of person/company if you wish. Only thing that worries me is if you by chance had had yours repaired by them!!! They are a Southern California company.
