    Hi gazberotten and welcome to the forum!

    My guess would be that you need to clean the heads on your camcorder. Get a DV cleaning cassette and use that and this will hopefully clear the error message.
    If this does clear the problem then I would suggest that any old tapes you have been useing get replaced. If the tapes are old they will likely have dirt on the surface that gets transfered to the heads of your cam. New tapes are now around £3 each online so not too expensive. Also you must keep to a single make and type of tape as the heads can get clogged up by different coatings on the different makes & types of tape.

    Mark.
