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.

SOURCE: Reinsert Cassette Error
Hi, I had the same problem. When I inserted the new (or old ) cassette, it was showing me the same simbol as you are describing here.... The one thing to do here is to let it check in some CamcorderReparingCentre. After I let it to repare it they told me that there was some kind of engine broken , I paid £60 for reparing but my camcorder is working again,properly like before...

SOURCE: reinsert cassette message
Believe it or not, after having the same problem "re-insert cassette" and "reattach power source", and after talking to Sony and them telling me it would be $111.00 to repair, I hit mine with the palm of my hand twice on each side and twice on the back by the battery and it actually worked--haha Go Figure!!
