Blue LCD Screen when I try to play a movie in VCR Mode

Hello:
I am having the following problem.
When I try to watch the movies that I previously recorded I am getting a blue screen and the counters are like --:--:-- when I press the play button in VCR Mode.
Do you know what is the cause and the solution to this problem.
The camcoder doesn't show any error message, just is displaying a blue screen.
No one of the counters are working.

    I am having the same problem as Chuck. I have brought a head cleaner and that has not solved the problem.

    I think it has something to do with the settings because after i played around with them I watched a tape for a brief time then the problem came back after I turned the camera off.

The tape path need to be cleaned, the heads are clogged. Also what can happen with sonys in low take-up torque. the take up reel can be retensioned, but it's a little tricky. you can send it me me if you like, A job like that might run about $100, thats if the heads are still good. Include a check for $40 to cover diagnostic, cleaning chemicals and bench time. If it just needs cleaning thats all you pay. This fee will apply to the repair if you approve the estimate. Send to Neighborhood camcorder Service. 8917 Woodman way , Sacramento ca. 95826, phone # is 916-362-8708. Larry

Probably the Controller unit for the TV. Try hooking it up through a different connection type e.g. HDMI, component. See if that fixes the issue for the time being. If it dies then those ports you used previously are malfunctioning.

you most likely has a bad screen, if you can, play back your video into a VCR, dvd burner or televisino with rca type inputs, this will at least let you save your movies.

Rolling picture and blue screen


According to my Satellite provider tech support. More and more channels are being encoded so that recording equipment cannot capture the signals to prevent piracy. I know the premium channels use this technique now. I would call and ask tech support if there is any copy restrictions in place that would affect your VCR recording before doing any further trouble shooting on the VCR. If you can play pack a prerecorded movie fine with your VCR then it should also record fine. Also try watching the channel through the VCR tuner and I bet you will see the same pattern. The VCR can only record the signal it is given.

Hope this helps you,
Ron
