Without knowing the make of model of your camera a solution is next to impossible. I suggest that you do an online search and download the users manual.

When recording it shows that it is recording but we can't see anything. If we play back what we think we might have recorded we can only hear the sound but not see anything.


Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.

IMPORTANT: If additional model-specific instructions are needed to perform any of the steps below, refer to the operating instructions of the camcorder. The instruction manual is available in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony eSupport Web site.
  1. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted or connect the AC power adapter.
  2. Turn the camera on to the VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  3. Insert a cassette tape with recorded video into the camcorder.
  4. Ensure the cassette tape is rewound to the beginning of the video recording.
  5. Begin playing the cassette tape.
  6. If your camcorder has an LCD screen, try adjusting the brightness or contrast.
  7. If there is still no picture on the LCD or viewfinder, reset the camcorder to factory specifications

Lines through the tape when recording or playing back


It could need a head adjustment. Any camera store can do that for you.

Camera plays in fast forward-like speed


Though I don't know the details of your camera and the tape you are playing, one explanation could be that the tape was recorded in "extended play" EP rather than "standard play" SP. Some VCRs and some cameras are incapable of playing back in EP, a mode where the tape moves at half speed so you can record more on the same tape. The result is that the tape playing back at regular speed appears twice as fast and fast forward will be even faster.

Unfortunately, unless your machine can be manually set to play back in EP (usually it is automatic) the solution is to play it back in a machine that can handle EP.

Switched back and forth between SP and LP in playback


The control track on the tape is not being sensed properly, or there may be a fault in the capston circuit, or capston drive.


There are a number of issues that can cause this:

This can be a dirt film on the control track head, or the main video drum heads, or warn head surfaces. It may also be an alignment problem due to warn parts. The electronics that read and process the control track, or video synchronization processing may have a fault.

The first thing you can do as a user is to clean the tape path. It is safest and usualy works well to use a cleaning tape for your camera type. Follow the instructions for the cleaning tape. The cleaning tape has a surface on it that is supposed to clean the head surfaces without causing a disturbance. Usualy the time required is about 5 to 10 seconds, depending on the model of the camera and the type of tape format.

Read the instructions that comes with the cleaning tape. It is not recomended to re-wind and re-use this tape.

Past this point, the camera will have to be serviced.
