Question about Sony DCR-HC32E DV Digital Camcorder
Camcorder will power on, fast forward and rewind okay, but when PLAY is pressed, only a blue screen appears in the viewer.
The tape counter at the top right is all dashes " -- -- -- ".
Likewise, we can hit RECORD, and the images appear in the viewfinder, but when we rewind to play, only the blue screen appears.
We tried resetting the camera per Sony's online instructions, but no help. They suggested repair service for this problem.
Problem with the heads?? Would cleaning do the trick??
Video head is dirty / clogged. Use good quality Mini DV Head Cleaning cassette.

Tips for a great answer:
This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
