"REMOVE THE CASSETTE" Error Message with old & new tapes


My family gave me an old Canon MD225 camcorder that uses MiniDV tapes. The tape that was in it appears to have about 22mins of footage recorded. However, I cannot play or continue recording, getting 'REMOVE THE CASSETTE' error. When I put a brand new tape in, I also get the same error when I try to record.

Do you think it will need just a headclean?

If the headclean does not work, do you think there may be another issue with it or another way to get it working?

Here is a link to footage of the old and new tapes not working:

Couldn't see it too well in the videos but did you press the "push" button down on the case until it clicks, when you closed the case after inserting the tape?
