Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD108 DVD Camcorder
Why cant i play tape back what i have recorded
If your Sony tells you it is recording yet on playback there is nothing there other than a blank screen, I had this problem and this is how I solved it.
1. Clean the heads two or three times with head cleaning kit
2. Leave the tape door open, with tape out or in, and warm the camera up for about 2 hours minimum.
3. Put in a previously recorded tape and see if it will display that film. If not, repeat 1 and 2. Persevere.
4. Once Stage 3 works (you might have a few "dirty" lines on it for a few seconds, and it is playing normally, try recording.
This worked for me. The heads were dirty and the camera cold but I persevered and thankfully it is OK (but for how long?)
Hope this helps. It seems to be rooted around dirty heads and coldness.
