This is not a problem with the tape but the camera. The only way to fix it seems to be to find an empty spot on the tape or a spot you don’t care if you record over. Then record for a second then go to video mode and you can play the tape without the blue lines. Or buy something else to play the tapes which should be fine either way. Darn camera !

Not recording? Wont let me retrieve anything. Says end of tape with a blank screen.


sir,
Did you test the previously recorded photos, or with a recorded cassette? if it is not showing the prerecorded pictures it means there is some problem with the video head, eject the cassette look the head drum carefully, if there any dirt on the head, clean it with a head cleaner cassette.(put the cleaner cassette in and play it,it will play for 3 minutes only, rewind the cassette and ply several times). some old cassette also will not give good result, if your system too old, the head may be weak so that you have to replace it.

Hi, I have Sony TRV238E HI8 Camera recorder. When I in play/edit mode, only have blue screen on the LCD with counter to and other parameters . In this mode if I move the tape Rew. or FF I have regular...


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the issue is with the dirt in the Video Head of the Camcorder. You can try using new Hi8 tapes for recording the videos to check if they are playing back normally. If the audio is working normally in the Camcorder, then the issue is with the dirt on the video head. If the issue persists with all the tapes, then the video head can be cleaned using a dry Video Head Cleaner Cassette. You can purchase the cassette from the Sony Authorized dealers or from the local electronics store. Please make sure that the cleaning cassette is compatible with the Camcorder.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

While playing an 8mm tape that was recorded, I have the problem where there was no sound from the camcorder and the picture was grainy.


sounds like the record head(s) may be very dirty, check them, they should clean and shiny if dulled an brown with tape residue, you can clean them with a lint free cloth and head cleaner. tape based cleaners cassette may not be good enough if the heads are very dirty. ensure you give the heads enough time to dry after cleaning 2 mins should be good then run a test record to check them.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa

I have a blue screen during playback mode on my Sony DCR-HC32. I am not able to see anything I recorded. What should I do?


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if a blue screen is displayed when attempting to playback video from the camcorder.
  1. Stop the tape.
  2. Ensure the tape has been rewound to the beginning of the video recording.
  3. Play the tape.
  4. If the issue is not resolved, stop the tape and remove it from the camcorder.
  5. Clean the video heads of the camcorder using a dry head cleaning cassette.IMPORTANT: Follow the instructions for use provided with the head cleaning cassette. It may be necessary to use the head cleaning cassette more than once per session.
  6. Reinsert the tape into the camcorder.
  7. Play the tape.
  8. If the issue is not resolved, stop the tape and remove it from the camcorder.
  9. Insert a different tape with video footage into the camcorder.
  10. Ensure the tape has been rewound to the beginning of the video recording.
  11. Play the tape.

Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape


Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

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)
