Mine was doing exactly the same, driving me nuts... Finally, I was trying EVERYTHING, and went into the menu and set the clock and date. I put the tape in, pressed it down where it says to press, the tape loaded normally and As oddball nuts as it sounds, it immediately began to work like normal. I havn't been able to get it to do anything but eject and flash that stupid "R", for months. Hope it helps...

You can download it here:- http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/samsung/camcorders/vp-d101.html .You will see the correct download button just below the label 'Download Samsung VP-D101 User manual' which is over halfway down the page. You will need to enter the code number shown a bit smudged in the picture, then wait for about 30 sec countdown and click 'try again' if nothing happens after a few moments. It will take a minute or so to download the manual as a PDF file which you can then save on your PC.
that issue will come to any camera these days , you know what to do , you go to you local shop(wallmart or something) and ask for a cleaning tape its not very expensive and make sure that the tape is dry then put it where you put your tapes in the camera and play , and eventually the picture will get good again ...god bless ya and good luck=)
