Why do i get the protection message on the screen when i load a tape (new) to record a video in my samsung video cam model sc-d107 min-DV. it was recording before. is there a way to turn it off? somebody pls help.
This seems to be an on going problem with all of the Samsung models sooner or later. 1st, check to make sure the protection tab on top of the tape is in record mode. Remove battery, wait a minute and replace battery, turning on the camera, place tape back into camera and close the door. If this does not work, the sensor is not reading that the tape is not protected. It is a service call but not worth the 150-195 in repairs to correct. Sometimes you just need to keep going, and going....

there should be a little tab on the tape that can be moved (the one on my tape is red) if it is closed it stops the tape from being able to record anything and if it is open you should not see the protection on the screen
My Samsungcamcorder one day displays protection. Used or new tape no difference. Used the menu options to remove protection and it gives me a play mode alert. Regardless I can not record in protection mode. Help!
If your camera uses video tapes, they have a little sliding piece on the back to stop you accidently recording on an important tape you want to keep. Slide it over for 'save' to 'rec' and you can record on it.
have suddenly getting a "Protection" message in Camera mode. - The viewfinder is OK and i can see the view but a "Protection!" message is blinking in the middle of the screen and the record button is not working if i press
This camera has a history of the flexible harness located on the cassette housing tearing when it rubs against the frame as the housing moves in and out. The harness tears and opens the circuit that detects the tapes record lockout tab, the camera is preventing you from recording on the tape in error. This repair requires replacemnent of the cassette housing, not for the faint of heart.
I wish you luck.
