When i play back recording the voice is stop / start picture perfect on jvc grd 340 camcorder

use a cleaning cassette, play it several times, look in side the mechanism for clogged dirt or the cassette running path for any deviation.

Jvc gr-ax35 only plays black and white on 3 different sources i.e. tv, dvd recorder player and usb capture. could this be tape detrition or dirty video head

i would take it and get it serviced
i think the tape isnt running at quite the right speed perhaps a dirty bearing
usually if you get black and white from a colour video
then its either recorded in black and white or playing back black and white

so if you record then test it using a a vcr and a converter vhs tape box then you can see if its recording in black and white

then youll know its something too do with either the colour carrier etc component of the video its outputing

dont think its a dirty head
but you can clean it easy enough
i use a plain manila envilope and use the inside of its paper
the outside is smooth the inside is rough
its just right to clean the head drum
and some small lint free cloth to carefully clean the mecha
i use IPA isopropile alchohol {get from the chemist}

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video

Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

Black or blank screen

your older recordings will only play on a pal monitor / tv ; if the camera video is ok now ? your tape heads may be dirty , wearing out - or both ; try a cleaning tape first but - do not rewind cleaning cassettes , or the old grime will be put back on the cleaned heads and guides ;

Display shows a set of black bars

This is a common(ish) problem on the JVC models. In most cases running the cleaning cassette will work. If it does not work the first time try it a second time. Make sure you follow the instructions as provided by the manufacturer for the use of your cassette and any cleaning solutions involved. Use them in conjunction with camera's information.

Play back has black line through it.

Cleaning may still be the problem. Try running the cleaning tape until it automatically stops (about 20 seconds). You may do 3 passes before giving up. If you still have a problem, you are going to need a servicer. Make sure you have a known good tape to test playback as the error is in any recent recording after the problem occured. Same heads for both functions. Good luck, magic seadog

Sony TVR 19, Not playing back

had a similar problem a while ago, took the camcorder to repair. the problem was that the reading-head (the part that is incharge of reading the tapes) needed cleaning. i used a cleaning cassette - problem solved.
