Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS9 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Whenever i record something onto my Panasonic PV-GS9 it works fine. When i try to playback the thing i recorded it just sits at the blue screen doing nothing. When i press play or FF or Rewind, it shows the icons and i can hear it but the screen stays blue. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I covered several threads that recommended buying a Mini DV cleaner and
running it up to 4 times. They also suggested to change to change your
video tape as it may have been the cause of the original problem.
These solutions may have worked for many but not me. My camera was becoming progressively worse. It went to blue bars and no sound to no picture at all...just blue. After using a cleaner 4 times I became frustrated to the point I was going to buy a new camera.
However, with the camera still playing, I did the typical guy thing and rolled up my fist and gave it a good hit along side of it. Remarkably it went back to just the blue bars. I hit it again and it went back to a perfect picture. I'm not saying this will work for you and hitting it too hard could make things worse but I was at a point where I didn't care any more and took a chance that paid off.

Get a DV cleaner tape. Less than $20.
