R 0:00 -- can't play back tape

I filmed 30 minutes of film. Tried to play it on the computer and then tried to replay it on the camcorder. Nothing is happening. Please advise how to fix as it's a very important tape.

    I have the same problem... when trying to play movie or capture video to my editor it seems to lock up before playing.... I see the play arrow but a few seconds later it goes idle. Could it be related to the fact that I fade in- fade out on scenes?

Panasonic Camera's have been a great problem for me. We have two where I work. Like the post above said you need to clean the heads. Panasonic does make a great head cleaner. It looks like yur mini DV tapes. You play it for 10 sec and tada....it works again. For the 4th time total mine will not turn on and an important tape is stuck inside.

How can i convert tapes to dvd


You can connect the Camcorder to the Computer using A/V interface to transfer the recordings to Computer.
Once you transfer the recordings from tape to computer, you can use any burning software to burn the recordings to DVDs.
In order to capture the analog videos, you can use the Windows Movie Maker available in the Computer.

I have filmed with my sony camcorder on dvd-rw 1.4 gb mini discs and it will not read on any of my computers. How do I copy these discs to my computer so I can burn them on to another disc.


Well..., First make sure that your computer has a DVD drive (I'm sure you already know)

When you take the disk out of your camcorder, do you finalize the disk?? If I don't finalize it on my camcorder then I cannot replay it on a computer or a DVD player.

Just my 2 cents!!

Cannot film


  Dear carooooo, You are dealing with tape not film. Your problem might be in your tape.   Try running your tape on record the full length. Keep your lens cap on. Color balance and use new tape that's for your Sony.         jameskeyboar.

Can not playback past end of first file on my Panasonic PV-GS2


I'm not sure if this will work for you but, sometimes I try to play back some of my tapes and a blue or grey screen comes up instead, although this sounds odd, if I record something(for even one second) it will let me see my film. I know this can cause problems because you may end up taping over film but if it's the only way to see your film it's worth a try!
