The tab is on the back of the video tape, it keeps you from recording over recordings that you have previously made on that particular tape. I hope this helps.

I have a panasonic handycam. It shows an error which says Check Record Tab on startup. Because of this error i cannot use the handycam. Please suggest any solutions


Hi,

The record tab is usually on the tape itself and is usually red in colour.
If you slide the tab to the open position and then reinsert the tape it should allow you to record.



Regards.

Check rec tab


A nice easy one. Eject your tape and look for the record lock on the cassette. It's usually a small plastic red tab which you slide to one side. The record will then work.

It's put there to stop you mistakingly record over the top of something you want to keep. Just make sure it's nor something you want to keep before recording over it :-)

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed


Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

What does Check record tab mean?


the term "tab" are used for sometime for "switch" and "button". So from general information, I think the camcorder has some kind of switch malfunction. Usually record button (toggles on and off) may be the problem if all other functions in PLAY mode is working. Also you may have "protective record tap" on tape may be changed. Hope this helps. -james

Hi there,
I suggest that you check and ensure that the correct playback and recording device is selected in the sound properties of your system. Please refer to the steps below as a reference.
1. Click on Start > Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel click on classic view, located at the side bar.
3. Next double click on ‘Sound’ and go to ‘Playback’ tab.
4. Please ensure that under ‘Playback’ tab; the headset is selected as default device.
5. Next go to ‘Recording’ tab and ensure that the microphone of the headset is selected as default device.
6. Now, try to take a test recording using Sound recorder.
7. Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Sound recorder
8. Take a test recording with Sound recording using the microphone of the webcam. Then playback the recording and check whether it was recorded clearly.

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.

Recording


of course, the first thing to check is the record protection tab on the cassette tape. other than that, check inside the camera to make sure a small piece of tape label or plastic isn't stuck in the mechanism, perhaps keeping the record protect sensor switch from operating.

Wont Record


Usually when a tape starts to play automatically this means that the tab on the back of tape has been removed to stop others recording over it check the tab little black tab in a recess on back edge of tape if this is missing you can put a bit of sellotape over the whole to blank it off this will tell the video tape is ok to record on.
However if the tab is still in place the try putting a small bit of tape over it also to raise the clearence slightly then put back in video and try to record if this still dont work then the mechanism that detects the tab has failed these can be replace but usuall parts are hard to come by now as they no longer make vcrs any more but let me know ok i can assist you further just check tabs in place even try raising it with a bit of card stuck over tab with tape this might make the tab switch work if it has wonr down abit let me know ok.
As you look form back of tape the tab is bottom left hand corner check its flush with the tape if not use sellotape to repair let me know the outcome ok

Make sure the little red tab on top of the tape is set to record and not save. The camcorder will not let you record it its set to save
