1) Are you putting the tape in right; ie, not backwards. Then, inserting the tape is a two stage process;when the tape is insidethe camera, push the metal frame in first, it snaps shut; then push in the outside cover. If youjust push the outside cover (which instinctively is what you may do if youhave not read the owner’s manual) the tape may not seat properly and this could give you an error message.
2) Here is a link to the Service Manual for the “e” PAL version of this camera. You will pay, but it is probably less than the cost of shipping your cam in the the repair center even for a “free” warranty repair.
