Like new, except it doesn't work ? Yeah, right. Re-cycle it and replace it.

Have you tried with different tapes ? Could be that this one is binding inside, and the camcorder cannot move it. Will it fast forward and rewind ?

Does the tape have blocking tabs that prevent recording? May be telling you that you can't use that particular tape.

If not take it in for professional repair. I think Sony is in Mississauga.

Andrew in Mississauga :>)

First of all, try using a head cleaning cassette. Secondly, it is now 24 years old - I am surprised it is still working at all (or maybe you are having it serviced annually ?)

Vista may not support it but you can try some things.

oYou may need to simply and very carefully delete all usb devices from device manager and restart so they are reseen and re-installed.

I would take the time to look at some of these help articles to determine how you wish to proceed:

Both of these error codes are related to the reels inside of the camcorder. The error codes that you mention stand for No Take Up Reel Rotation (F01) and No Supply Reel Rotation (F02). The take up reel is the one that pulls in the extra slack while the tape is running so that the tape itself does not become loose and choppy. The supply reel is the reel in charge of turning to allow the tape to unwind. What you are experiencing are both common reel rotation errors.

First things first, restore your camcorder to factory settings, take out the battery and leave it out over night, plug it back in the next morning. If that doesn't fix it, try a completely different tape that you've used in the camcorder before to see if there is something wrong with the tape reels (sometimes they are loose) or the tape itself.

If that does not work, your next step is cleaning the camcorder. Use a cleaning tape. You may want to perform two or three cleanings in order to make sure that the camcorder is back to normal. You can also use an electronics dusting brush and manually clean out any visible dirt or dust, sometimes blowing cool air (such as the canned air used to clean computer keyboards) directly into the camera can fix the problem as well.

Unfortunately, if neither of these solutions fixes it, it's time to take it to a repair shop, it may need a new reel mechanism inside of the camcorder.

Good luck!
