Hello there, you are not alone in this problem, I get 100's of other people write on this matter, the tape head cleaners sold are mostly a bit of non abrasive tape type stuff that would not clean a bit of dust off a shiny table, let alone a dirty camera head.
You need to get a proper head cleaning kit with the tape that looks like a white flat shoe lace, run that for 30 sec in camera in seconds your heads will be like new.

It sounds like you are using an aftermarket (non-sony) battery pack. The camcorder you are using probably requires the Genuine Sony 'Infolithium' Battery pack (usually in the box of the camera). If you are getting this message with the proper battery installed, i would contact SONY
