Question about Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I just came into a problem that when I playback a tape I get thick blue lines. I just bought the camcorder two years ago and it should not be broken. I took back to the store where I purchased it and they told me it was shot. Please someone help. I don't want to accept that it is broken. I have tried two of three of the previous solutions, but what is a dirty head and how do I fix it? Restarting the camera didn't work. Thanks!
Just forward a blank new tape...5 times if needeed i suggest not to use a video head cleaner..just imagine using a sand paper to the head what will happen..:-)

Had similair problem with other brand of DV camera, Thanks to x-tian for his suggestion. Wasn't sure if he meant to Fast-foward in playback mode or just Fast- forward in rapid search(No picture) I tried both..... After a couple of passes - the playback was normal!!!! matt

The solution I found, in some tapes I have, is to move the "save protection" tap to the "allow recording" position, this solves the blues lines in my Panasonic PV-GS12 Hope it helps Oliver
