Sony Handycam DCR-TRV280 NTSC Error message: "reinsert the cassette"      Ok, I remove and reinsert it.... Same error message. So, I google and get this video: I don't really understand which pin they refer to removing and cleaning, so I try solution 2-remove battery for a while. It works for a short time, but the battery removal solution no longer works. Suggestions?

I have the CCD sensor from an old Sony Handycam (Sony DCR-HC36), What can I do with it?

Can I somehow mod it so that I can use it with a telescope? (for lunar and planetary photos) I have attached an image of the sensor.

Video Programs

I've been looking for a good program for making videos, and was wondering what other people have used. I tried the trial version of Vegas,but can't buy it because of the price. Anything over $100 is too much, ~$50 is better. Ulead has been suggested to me. It has to handle mpeg-2 video from a Sony Handycam, too.
