The only thing I can find on this (and its silly sounding I know) is the following: 1) Moisture condesnation build up, leave the door open for 1 hour or more 2) The tapes you are using have write protection enabled

On my 2005 Sony hi8 CCD-TRV138 when I try to record it says "the tape is locked- check the tab"

The switch is right where the protection tab is on the cassette when the tape is inserted. It is unlikely you can fix, and as it is a quality recorder, I would take it to a Sony Service Centre.

What do i need to purchase to connect my sony handycam cdd-trv68

You need to download your movies with a Firewire cable, you must make sure your PC or Laptop has this socket, the marking near this socket on your computer has a 3 bladed windmill picture.
Your cable will set you back about £10 at most good camera shops.

Sony handycam video cassette

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Won't playback

Use good quality video head cleaning cassette because video head seems dirty/ clogged. If it doesnt solve the problem, video head need to be replaced.
