Question about JVC GR-SXM58 Camcorder
You could have dirty heads. If the tapes weren't stored properly and were exposed to high humidity and tempreture the oxide could have loosened allowing it to plug the video head. New tapes will not solve the problem. Once the head is dirty it must be cleaned. Here is a website which explains it as well as I could and they even have pictures: http://www.bealecorner.com/trv900/trouble/cleaning.html Another tip is to only use top quality, name brand tape. Cheap tape will shed oxide and require more frequent cleanings. Cleaning the heads is probably the most overlooked item with camcorders. If you are not confident doing this job take the camcorder to a reputable shop. Good luck.
