    I have also just had this problem! I found if I reset the camera it will work for a few seconds then just do it again. Eventually I was able to get the tape out and put a new tape in to see if that was the problem. With a new tape in all seemed ok, until about 20 seconds into recording then it flashed that error message again! Anybody know what causes this and how to fix it?

I have a sony Handycam videoHi8 camcorder, my problem is that it

Try using different tape or a new tape in the Camcorder.

Clean the video heads using the Sony V8-25CLD cleaning cassette.

You may also try pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds to reset all the settings in the unit to the factory defaults.

Good luck!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!

Tape Wont Play

My advice is that you should by a cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Hi-8...

I am having the same problem. When I hit Rewind or Fast Foward, i can see the image moving clearly.
When I hit play though, I just get a BLUE screen with the Play arrow displayed. So it's playing, I just got a blue screen. And last night, I got the blue screen but I could hear the audio. 
Then I put a head cleaning tape in the camera, and I did get the picture back on for a little bit.
Skip to this morning, and we are back to the Blue screen again. Only this time, I am getting no audio. And I the head cleaning tape back in but it's not helping anymore.

Why wont it play LP taped tapes?

Tracking is very sensitive on hi-8 tapes in LP mode. This recorder will record and playback in LP mode. It is however recommended that if you record in LP mode that you use the same camera to play it back, that it was recorded with, or you might have problems.
Also from what I can find online, the TR427 is just an video8 camera not a Hi-8 so if you are trying to play Hi-8 tapes on it, it won't play right.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
