Keeps saying reinsert tape

The problem is from the mechanism,but it is not as if the entire mechanism is bad but there is some thing called pinch roller;this is a black round robber that is found inside the mechanism,it can be seeing when you eject the MEC if it is not there it can cause that problem, The capstan can also cause it if it is weak or bad.you can get an expert that can unscrew the camera to service it for you and i am very sure it will work.Bye for now

My sony dvd recorder vrd-mc6 and sony handycam

Hi, well I suspect that you will also need to install a "Driver" for the units too, make sure that the drivers are written for your operating system too or they will/may not work. So see if there are indeed drivers for the ilink, install then and see how you go? Using the A/V cables should give you a great picture, and should work fine? Ir's really the software that determines the quality anyway? but you should be able to do well with just the A/V, and good software.

It would be great if

Hello Marcel Beaulieu,

This is a common problem among these types of digital camcorders. It has to do with small components within the camera that get displaced a little. Though, sometimes doing a hard power reset (removing the battery for a few minutes) sometimes fixes the issue for a short period of time a more popular but unusual solution would be to:
  1. Remove the battery,
  2. Tap the opposite side of the tape deck with a solid rubber object (e.g. rubber mallet/ball)
  3. Repeat, if necessary, until the problem is fixed
To avoid this problem again you have to avoid removing the tape from the camera and utilize a PC, VCR, or DVD recorder to save your recordings.

If have any questions or concerns regarding this unusual method of solving your problem please feel free to contact me at [email protected]

You should not need additional drivers. Digital-8 cameras will have a firewire port on them. Connect with a firewire cable to the computer and open Windows Movie Maker for PCs or iMovie for Macs. Using another movie editing application if you have one will also work.
Treat the Digital-8 camera as a non-controllable device, that means you will most likely have to start the camera manually to capture. Make sure the camera is in VCR/playback mode not record.

My sony keeps telling me

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Anyone know the moisture sensor

The Dew sensor is an electronic component deep within the tape mechanism and is not accessable without completely disassembling the camera. This job is better left to a committed technician.
