Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 says reinsert memory card. We have reinsert the card correctly but it continues to say that. Is the camera beyond repair?

you'll make sure that you camera is not the problem is when you insert other memory card that is working on other cameras. if that doesn't work at all try to look for any foreign object that block memory card insertion contacts or you can buy a contact cleaner spray for electronic parts and spray it on the memory card holder part of the camera.

Cassate is not removing

These mino tape cameras unlike the larger 8mm tape camera have never worked well because they jam in-side the capstan and get slung round the picture heads, a thing the larger 8mm tape hardly ever did, maybe that is why Sony went to the mini tape, it brought lots more money in to the Tec guys to un-twine the stuff.

Can not paly

Make sure you are putting the right digital tapes in, I use digital 8 myself, best mode yet, cannot understand anyone filming with lesser modes like DVD, as tape has always and will always be best.
The problem your camera has is dirty playback heads, grab a 8 mm camera cleaner tape from any good camera shop like Jessops, do not let them tell you the camera has had it's day, because the rubbish I see of new cameras these days are not worth buying.

I have a sony handycam and i started having problems with it because its says i have to reinsert the tape like million times and i want to know what is wrong with it.

I think I replied you before...

This is mechanical problem of Take Up Reel section and system control chip doesn't get reel pulse and you see reinsert tape message (error message)

Repair of this mechanism is delicate work and prior experience does matter here. If you have camera repair knowledge and experience, you should check take-up reel section in camera mechanism.

Good Luck.
