Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The obvious thing to do is to replace the battery. (Depending upon how old the battery is, that is reasonable: batteries fail somewhat more often than charging electronics do, and the battery is easier to replace.)

Meanwhile... do you need to remove the cassette? if the camera is not working until it gets a new battery, do you need the cassette removed? let me know, please. It might not be easy to do.

I fear that I have no information on that model, and removing a cartridge with the power Off, so I must Opt Out, opening the case to other Experts in this category.
