I was having the same problem and after reading Joe's answer, I decided to see if I could free the drum motor brush of whatever rust or contamination was under it. I recorded for awhile and then fast forwarded and reversed some. It worked!!!! Thanks Joe. Rick

The drum motor in this camcorder has a earth brush assy which makes contact with the lower portion of the motor removing static charges from the video head assy. This brush becomes contaminated and looses contact with the drum motor which causes the "stuttering" effect you're seeing in the video. This problem can only be resolved by a qualified service tech., it requires complete disassembly of the unit too gain access to the drum motor. Hope this explains what is going on.

Picture Rolls Vertically during VHS playback on EWC19T3?


Hello
If the fault is only with tape play, and not with on air programmes, it is surely either with the tape or with the mechanism. Look at the tape filim for any curl at its bottom edge. If there is curling, rolling will occur becuse, contol signals are recorded at the botton edge of the tape. If top edge hage curling, sound will be effected. If there is no such mistake with tape, the pintch rollar of the VCR mechanism has worn out, and should be replaced. OK.

No picture. Camer drives tape but does not record


Playback no picture? Try to clean the head by inserting cleaning cassette. During camera mode, i don't know if you see anything in your monitor. What you see is what you can record on tape so may be your problem starts from here, please elaborate more.

Picture visible only during fast forward


You have dirty heads, hence the blue screen, either try using a head cleaning tape, although these do not always do a through job, or if you remove the top cover & using a head cleaner fluid, VERY GENTLY wipe the heads at the sides of the round silver drum using either a head cleaner stick with the fluid or a piece of sturdy card. DO NOT put too pressure against the head or you will damage them completly & would need replacement heads. Leave them a few minutes to dry then try playing a tape once more.

It is very common when the magnetic heads got dirty. Buy a Mini DV cleaning tape, follow the instruction clean the heads by playing the cleaning tape for a while. Record NEW video and playback to test.
Please know if you play the old video recorded buy the dirty heads, you may not get clear picture, because here is not correct data recorded on the tape.

My camera does not show what i have taped


Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

E04 message


Lisa, E04 is an error code which shows that one or both of the reels has stopped during play or record operation. We find that tapes with liquid contamination can stick to internal parts in the mechanism causing this error. Try another tape, if this does not resolve the problem something is defective in the tape transport. Good Luck to you! Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
