The tape with line through it indicates that there is some issue with tape/tape mechanism.
I believe that the tape symbol is as follows:
If the tape warning indicator flashes slowly, the reason may be.
- The remaining tape becomes shorter than the length of five minutes recording.
- No tape is inserted
- The write protected tab on the cassette is set to LOCK(red).
If you're confirmed that the reason is not the first and second, it should be because of the write protected tab on the tape.
Don't worry, I will help you with that. Please see the below picture to view the LOCK slide switch:
If the tape with line symbol flashes quickly, it indicates that the cassette has run out of tape.
If the issue persists, please follow the troubleshooting steps and check if that helps.
- Reinsert the tape.
- Reset the Camcorder by pressing the reset button behind the LCD panel using a sharp pointed object.
- Perform a power resetting
Turn off the camcorder.
Disconnect AC power adapter.
Remove the battery pack.
Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds.
Move the POWER switch to the OFF position.
Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camcorder.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
I hope performing the above steps should resolve the issue.
