Question about Sony DCR-VX2100E Camcorder
I own a Sony VX12100, which is about 4 years old. It's been a solid workhorse, as I've probably shot over 300 hours of footage. I was out on a shoot yesterday, and the manual white balance failed to set. The picture is very green, and when I go to set the WB in manual mode is just keeps flashing. Also, I've been getting the "Clean Cassette" warning on a more frequent basis lately. Any ideas?
Yes, need to clean video head of camcorder.
Put MiniDV head cleaning tape in camera and clean its video head as per instructions on cleaning tape.

Sorry but the only way to transfer the tape is to be able to play it in a compatible camcorder or player. Then use one of the analog to digital converters "available on the internet" to transfer it to a PC.
Best bet is to ask some friends if they have an old camcorder that will be able to play that video cassette for you.
Sidenote: If the cassette is fairly new it might already be recorded in digital format, in which case you only need a compatible camcorder or player and a USB or Firewire cable to import it into your Mac
