Please get a Hi 8 cleaning cassette and run it in the camera for a few seconds. you may have to do this several times for the head to be completely cleaned unfortunately for Hi8 you will not hear the sound when there is no picture on playback.
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.
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.
