Video heads clogged - don't get cleaned with cleaning cassette
I have a JVC GY DV5000U camera with LOW hours on it. The video heads are clogged raising the warning to clean them. When I do, the camera shoots for about 15 to 30 seconds, then the heads get clogged again.

This needs to be solved at the shop if your product is under warranty. ESLE If you are adept at opening gadgets do this Get a bottle carbon tetra chloride Dip an end of ear buds and clean the heads without touching any plastic parts.

There is no Blue screen disable option on the camera.
Since the blue screen caused by the video heads, try to clean it up by running a cleaning cassette.
The cleaning cassette helps only for minor clogs of the Drum(video heads)
The notice is saying that you have a dirty video head. If this display was not programmed into your camera you would have gone ahead and recorded an event only to find out later that you have a fuzzy of snowy result.If you do not have a cleaning cassette try playing a previously recorded clean cassette or even a brand new blank cassette for about 10 to 15 minutes. Playing a clean cassette has a slight cleaning action provided it has no fungus or dirt on it itself. Mind you even a damaged or worn out head will give you the same notice - Use cleaning cassette !!.
You could have one of several problems. The cleaning message comes up when the camcorder cannot read the signal from the tape properly. This can be caused by: 1) A dirty video head 2) the tape guides being out of alignment 3) A worn or broken video head If a cleaning cassette head does not help, you will need a tech to look at it.
i have the JVC MiniDV Digital Video Cleaning Cassette. I began having trouble when I was shooting DV24P and when I went to playback I noted audio dropouts. I'm using SONY Premium DVM60 tapes. I began having Head Cleaning Required message. I have ran the Cleaning Cassette and the message disappears, but even trying a brand new tape, switching to DV playback i get the error message. Luckily, the shoot i was on the master audio was being captured by a secondary device and we were able to simply use the video from my camera. Since then, I was able to play & capture both the video & audio previously recorded in HDV30P and I didnt receive an error message. Now though I cannot record any DV audio without dropouts. When I tested just moments ago, I was able to record HDV and both video & audio were clean, but during playback I still received the Head Cleaning message. Is the record head different from the playback head? Can you manually clean the heads by removing the plastic door cover with a lintfree cotton swab and rubbing alcohol (obviously disconnecting and removing all power & powering off prior to cleaning), the same way any previous machine heads were cleaned in our stations? I think I may have got a batch of bad tapes that may have gunked up one of the heads some where and its getting missed by the cleaning tape. Is is possible that the head has been scratched, and will require replacement. If yes, is there any way to look at the head and detect this?
Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera.
Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
* 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.
