I recently bought a 6 year old Sharp Hi8 Viewcam. Ive had problems with it ever since :P. First the tape opener jammed. Ive fixed that and everything is operational my only problem is that whenever I put a Hi8 tape in it says “Cassette not recordable.” It also says “protect.tab” Im sure I know what thats referring to and I set my tape on “rec” not on “save.” I even got 2 new tapes but they have the same message can anyone help me?
when fixing the loader there is a chance you misaligned something internal which makes it see each tape as non-recordable.
