Protection! Flashes on screen

When I put a tape into the camera and turn it on to the Camera mode for recording I get that flashing Protection message disabling me to record. Even if I switch the tab on the tape over to Rec I still get that message. Any suggestions or similar experiences?

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. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Mini-DV tapes have a small physical switch on them to protect the contents from being overwritten. It is probably just that this switch is set, not a problem with the camera.

"Protection!" on screen when trying to record on tape


samsung is awful. i only used my camera a handful of times and then same problem with the protection mode. since its out of warranty i have to pay for the repair. they told me that it has never ever been a reported issue, so being that said i have to pay for repair on a faulty part. (I literally used this camera 10 times most since i bought it 4 years ago) they are horrid! not to mention how long it took me to get anywhere. they hung up on me 3 times, and I also kept getting disconnected! I will never own another samsung again!

My samsung mini DV camera SC-D372 keeps flashing "Protection" on the playback screen


turn the camcorder off, take out the tape, look for the protection tab on the side of the tape and switch it to the other side.

protection is a feature of your tape to keep you from taping over important videos saved in your tape

Problem when Trying to record


Hi,

If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.
