Question about Panasonic PV-GS2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Try to playback the tape and the screen is all blue

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 )

Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.
Video-8 head cleaning tape is available with amazon.com

Blue stripes in playback is an indication that you need to clean the heads. A Panasonic cleaning tape should work fine.

Thick stripes on the recording on mini dv tapes


Stripes are either caused by -
Bad tape - try a new tape
Dirty tape head - can it be cleaned? Cotton wool bud and some metho?
Electronic fault.
Try a different tape first.
If that doesn't help, clean the head. Is it under warranty?

LCD shows stripes thus the picture is not complete


Mine was similar - with vertical black lines on playback. Visit Bristolcameras.co.uk, enter your make and model and ask for a head cleaner. They sent me one within 4 days and that was over the Christmas period. Reasonably priced too (£3.50 + p&p) and the whole head cleaner can be used up to twice once the tape has gone from beginning to end.

Wont record anything to MiniDV tape and A/D randomly working


Hello,

Sorry about delayed reply as I just saw it.

Its known problem of ccd imager in Canon ZR85 camcorder and ccd imager needs to be replaced.

Canon will repair your camcorder free of cost as per announced scheme for ccd imager issue.

Click Canon CCD Advisory for details, how to get free repair.

Regarding can't see picture or time code in playback, it is problem of dirty / clogged video heads. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette to clean heads and hope camera will show playback picture.

Good luck.

Sony dcr-trv120 playback


the problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.
