Question about Samsung VP-D20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The LCD shows up as normal in record mode, but when I go to playback mode (LCD still working) the tape comes on briefly and goes back to the blue screen but the tape carries on playing? I can fforward and rewind but still JUST the blue screen?
Ah solved it cheap and quick way is 2 get a cotton bud and rub it on the head several times and it worked for us get cleaning may not need cleaning tape afterall

Hello Meerdorf, please buy the cleaning cassete for Mini DV and try to clean the head and tape path. Best regards, Arpad

Tips for a great answer:
With your camcorder powered ON, and set to VCR / playback, there should show on the screen (viewer) something indicating "Menu" or a "FN" (Function) option. Select "Menu" (or Function icon to lead to the Menu). Check through the Menu options to find "Mode", and find the option for Normal Recording or playback, as opposed to "Test Mode", or "Demonstration Mode".
If this does not solve the problem, try this: Turn the camera OFF, remove camera battery, re-install battery, turn camera ON and see if that Re-set the camera. If not, it might be resolved by manually resetting the time and date. Then go to the Menu again to set Mode to normal recording or playback.
If those do not correct the problem, there is no shame in calling the camera company to speak with Tech-services. That's what they are there for.
