5605 Tape Defective Error JVC GY-hd200

I just got my JVC 200 back from service due to a firewire port defect....(being quite savvy technically and working with cables and servers I did make sure that the port was plugged in corrrectly)...

Anyhow after I got the camera back...It worked fine on the first assignment I had after the repair...Now Its another problem....whenever I insert a new tape..it says "5605 tape is defective"...I eject the tape and put it back in there and it works fine......After the error goes away....I record for a while...shut down the camera properly and then turn it back on.....Doing so gives me the same stupid error....I eject the tape and little bit of the tape is hanging out (if this makes sense).

I ruled out that the batch of tapes I purchased are not defective because i tried the same tapes in another JVC camera (jvc 5100) and they worked fine...The mini DV tapes are made by TDK...I also tried a tape made from SONY just to go the extra step...same thing....5100 works fine...200 craps!!

Any ideas...

The repair process for the firewire may have introduced a fault in the tape transport. So soon after repair work done, I would be inclined to take it back, especially if they have done a service and an alignment on it as well as one might expect. Your invoice should show if this happened.

The repairmen don't go out of their way to make trouble for you so don't be too hard on them. Also the fault coming so soon after repair may just be coincidence.
