Hi. Great machine, but today when I attempted to rewind a cassette that I had shot, I got the message on the screen, "For infoLITHIUM Battery Only." Once that message is displayed, the machine goes dark.
I was having the same problem with a sony GV-D1000 which I don't even use a battery with. I use an AC adapter. Someone suggested that the contacts might be dirty, so I unplugged the small connector that plugs into the back of the deck and wiped it hard with my t-shirt. It seems to work fine now. SO try cleaning the contacts (wherever your adapter or battery connects with the deck or camera.)

Re: For Info Lithium Battery only
That just states to use a infolithium battery, so if you have a battery that is not a genuine sony battery for the unit this will be displayed at times if your battery indicator shows that there should have been more charge to the unit then charge the battery to full again and try again so the indicator is displaying the battery life correctly.
the InfoLithium is a lithium ion battery which can exchange data such as battery consumption with compatible electronic equipment.
your vcr only operates with the InfoLithium ion batteries, if you have tryed a different battery please get a genuine sony infolithium battery.
so if you charge and it happens again then see if you can find someone to use a voltage meter on the battery to make sure the battery is connecting properly to the unit and that there is no spikes in the batteries power.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.
just take another photo, if it reads 9 then the film is advancing. if it reads 7 then it's going to the cassette. no problem either way.
if the film is advancing, it will either rewind auto or there will be a rewind button or switch with a double arrow.
if the film is going to the cassette it will rewind auto.
On Canon camcorders, "remove the tape" error is due to no data reading by video head. You may have clogged heads or somewhere along the area. Initially, I would try to insert good clean "video head cleaning tape" and run for about 7 seconds and see if that resolve the symptom. If it persists, it need a help from a technician. Good Luck.

I did the same thing. What I found out was that it's very important to charge a lithium battery completely on the first use. You probably took it off the charger too soon. If it's not completely charged on the first use it won't be able to hold any charge.
Sadly, I ended up having to buy another one and try again.
Sounds like the batteries went dead, and the internal lithium memory battery was already dead, causing it to forget the settings. install fresh batteries, and reset the ISO of youtr film by holding down the ISO button, and pressing the up/down buttons behind the shutter release. That should return it to normal, but you will have the same problem again whenever you are changing the batteries until you replace the lithium cell. To change the lithium cell, remove tha battery pack, and open the metal plate in the camera's battery compartment. The cell is a lithium CR 2016.
If that does not fix it, you may have a broken camera.
If one of these solutions doesnt work you will most likely need to purchase a new calculator.
Batteries: Make sure to replace the "battery backup" too the little lithium ion battery
Try Adjusting contrast:
Hold down "[2nd]" key press up or down arrow repeatedly to lighten or darken contrast.
First attempt reseting: Step 1: Remove all the batteries Step 2: Hold "Clear" key down Step 3: Still holding "Clear" key reinstall batteries Step 4: Still holding "Clear" key press "On" key until home screen is displayed.
Second shot reseting: remove all batteries including lithium ion (backup battery), wait 3 hours and reinstall batteries.
Third Shot reseting:
Step 1: Remove a battery
Step 2: Hold down "DEL" key reinstall battery
Step 3: Possible msg pops up saying "Waiting ... Please install software" IGNORE msg and take out battery again Step 4: Reinstall battery do not hold down "DEL" key
reseting will cause the handheld to loose all of its stored memory.
