Tape rejection - droplet symbol shown

I have a second hand sony camcorder that has suddenly started playing up. Any tapes that we put in are immediately rejected, without it even closing properly. This is accompanied by a bleeping sound. The screen on the side is flashing a small droplet of water type symbol, but I do not know what this represents as I do not have the manual. Can anyone help, please?

Hi there, the small water type symbol means that the internal dew sensor is activated. Please use the fan (low temperature) or leave it in a warm place for some time. If you need more info please advice.

560X Camcorder Handycam won't record or play

This behaviour is relaterd to tape reading / tape detection. You may have a dirty or worn-out head on the video heads drum.
You may try to use a cleaning tape in order to retrieve normal perfoming of your camcorder, BUT you should take care, as cleaning tapes are also abrasive tapes, and the amount of cleaning cycles a video head can support is limited.
Then it should be possible that after cleaning the result is nul or worse (I had this lately on an old Sony Camcorder, it was recording with much losses in the film, after using the cleaning tape it doesn't record any more).
All that means you may repair your camcorder with the cleaning tape, but you may finish it too, if the video heads are too old.

In any case take time to read the cleaning tape user manual, cleaning time is very short (10 seconds generally) and must'nt be overtaken.

Hope you would have the good result !

How to clean Heads of DVX100B

Hello there! This kind of tape is abrasive and so when it starts to rotate the S-post is not rotating one and the tension gets higher than it use to be with a normal tape.The best solution for this problem is to rotate upper drum slowly by hand carefully and spray towards it a head cleaning spray.Then wait for 15 min.and blow hot air from a hair dryer inside mechanism for 10 seconds ,and by this action no more droplets will stay on the drum surface.Attention when you put the first tape wait for 15 seconds in pause or stop mode and after push REC or PLAY button.

Hi there Guys! Problem with Sony Camcorder DCR - TRV230E

Stuck sensor. Sounds silly but smack it.

Hit your camera several times with a flat hand (bottom, tape side). Its strange but it solved it for a lot of people. Firmly smack the bottom and then put the battery back on and give a it a shot.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
