Question about Panasonic PV-GS2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Initially, when I tried to playback the tape I had blue stripes on the screen. I used the head cleaner tape for 10 seconds according to the instructions and the blue stripes disappeared. I took the tape out to see another tape and now the screen is all blue. I used the head cleaner again for 10 seconds, tried the tape again and still blue. 10 more seconds with the head cleaner and still blue. In addition, on the bottom left side of the screen you see now only -- -- -- where before you could see the date and time. Please help! Thanks, Antonio
Your heads motor ( drum ) cable may have have come loose or is dirty - since the cleaning tape made some difference the heads were dirty or almost worn out ( cleaner tape is abrasive ) so now there isn ' t enough signal ; if your date and time display worked only in play ? ( still works for camera record video ) your guides were out of alignment - and the cleaning tape took your guides even further out of alignment ( alignment here starts at $ 50 + shipping )
