On the cassette shell is a small sliding door that prevents recording, move it to the record position.
The idea is to protect a valuable tape from being recorded over.

I cant switch on the recorder


sir,
mention the make and model when you ask, I don't think you used an old or tab closed cassette, some old models shows record switch problem, push the record button with little pressure, if it gives action spray some cleaning agent through the grove of the rec button, often press it.

Tape doesn't stay down, keeps popping back out of cassette, on my Sony CCD-TVR608. Any ideas?


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

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 :-)

Check rec tab keeps popping up when i turn on my camera and it prevents my from recording any thing. its a Panasonic 3ccd pv-gs500 how do i fix this.


Ok, I've had this issue for some time now ... and just figured it out, hopefully your issue will be the same.

If you pop out the tape you are trying to record to. Look at the top, there is a small tab on one of the corners that will allow or prevent recording on the tape depending on which way it is positioned. If you slide it open the tape is locked for recording, if you close it, you can record. Try that and see if the problem goes away.....

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.
