    Unfortunately I do not have a Samsung camera to check the error codes. Typical reasons for this type of error is either Camera Condensation or dirty video heads.

    In the case of the latter simply use a 'Head Cleaner' to clean the video heads. In the case of the former follow the manufacturer's instructions to remove the condensation.

    In any event you should in the first instance check your user manual to establish the cause of the specific error code.

    If it was a typical problem there would have been no need to post a question. I can guarantee there is no condensation in the camera and I can't clean the heads because like I had said, it will not play a tape, and to use a head cleaner it had to play for a few seconds. I am still at a loss....thanks for the suggestions though.

    In which case I would suggest that you take the issue up with your retailer, or with Samsung support at http://www.samsung.co.uk/cgi-bin/ecu...e%2fContact+Us
