HDR-HC1 Sony camcorder- reinsert the cassette error message

Bill,

The problem is with the S-reel. Take the tape out, remove the battery, and give it a slight bump. This usually fixes the issue for a couple of weeks. I haven't heard of any permenant fixes. I took my cam into circuit city (before they closed) twice for the same issue. Very frustrating when you don't know what the issue is.

Reinsert the cassette

I had the same problem and had to leave my camera in for service twice, although I am not using it that much. In the end, they told me they had to change the "head" which cost me about 100euros. If it happens again, I think I will throw the camera in the bin!
