Re: Problems with film playback

Try to clean the video head using a blank new tape.....just forward or rewind it until the head been clean cause using a head cleaner is damaging the head,the cleaner is so rough that why i cannot recommend of using that...if it still the problem is like rainy picture...the problem is the head it need to be replace but if the cost is to high you think you better buy a new camera....

Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?

In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

WOW! You've realy got some problems. With this combination of failures I would suggest that you may have gotten envloved in some environmental conditions which have caused differing unrelated symptoms all connected to exposure to moisture. The focus data is communicated through a flexible printed cable to the lens and may have the connector eroded by moisture. Ordinarily a cleaning tape should restore playback if it indeed was able to properly record in the first place (same set of heads in use for both record and playback). If the play and rewind buttons do not function you may have another cable problem. More info could be useful. Good luck, magic seadog

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear

I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Solid blue lines through Picture on playback mini DV PV-gs19

One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.

≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another

≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

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!
