Re-Insert the casette problem

No matter what I try, i keep getting the darn...re-insert the cassette message can you please help me too.
Thanks,
marc I have the same problem. It only developed after using tapes other than the original. The non original tapes were accepted for a while, then for no known reason I keep getting the 'reinsert cassette' message.
When I go back to the original tape I have no problem.
This is a major product fault as the manual says it will accept any standard digital 8 tape.

Sony is notorious for brand specific the same can be said for their mavica series cameras that can use any mini-disc. unfortunately the best solution is to stay with sony tapes

Car casette player won't accept cassettes. I put a cassette in and it spits it right back out.


Your casette player must have something lodged in it that's why it spits the casette tape back out. If you are able to, try dislodging the player from your dashboard. Shake it and if there's something noisy inside, chances are that's your culprit. Try to get it out by shaking the player while keeping the casette tape door open - like getting coins from a piggy bank. :)

Hope this helps!

Will not rewind


Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.

If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Toshiba 2060 problem with casette


If the cassette makes a popping noise when first inserted (as it tries to lift paper to feed rollers) then the lift motor drive case is cracked / damaged....one of the gears may be also damaged.
