Theres a fault in your wireing or Sync. System. Remove all inputs from the Deck and try it oncemore! The TBC had to be syncronised with your Video Source.(in sync)
If the deck is in Record mode (assembe,insert) switch of the TBC !

The DNR boards for these machines can go bad and produce a black and white picture. Try swapping the DNR board.

I own a Panasonic 3ccd nvgs mini dv i was shooting some footage...tape got horizontal lines on it... i really really need that tape... can it be fixed?...thx a milion

Sounds like dirty heads .
If the lines are recorded onto the tape, probaly not.
Try a head cleaning tape in the camera or use another playback device.
If the lines are recorded onto the tape then track down someone with a TBC (timebase corrector) and pipe the signal through that and record to another tape.

JVC HD-52Z575 52 inch Cannot get a colour pic only black & white

Your HD-52Z575 will only be able to display an NTSC signal, PAL is not compatable. There is nothing that can be done to make it play a PAL signal.

No chroma on playback

Bad heads may produce a loss of color in playback. If you have a spare head, swap it out and confirm this.

Noise block doring playback of D-VHS tapes

* Do not record program in DVHS mode on an S-VHS cassette. Use of S-VHS cassettes will not allow for maximum performance and may result in head clogging. Use only D-VHS cassettes as recommended in the instruction manual on page 27. * Make sure that the DIGITAL 3-DNR lamp is ON when playing back a cassette recorded in D-VHS mode. If not press DIGITAL 3-DNR so that the DIGITAL 3-DNR indicator illuminates. * When block noise appears on the TV screen, clean the video heads with the DFC-2 D-VHS Head Cleaning Cassette (continue up to 3 minutes total). Please refrain from using any other head cleaning cassettes as drum damage may result.
