    Hi everyone, I have Panasonic NV-GS11, and the problem I have is with playback any tape. The counter just remain the same as if a blank tape has been inserted. When recording the counter stays 00-00-00 the whole time even after pressing record button. Any help is appreciated.

    When playing back the tape seems to roll, but no picture nor sound. Just a blue screen.
    Additional problem: when pressing the rew button, it just sinked into the camcorder and stays stuck in there. It felt like pressing into fudge.
    The camcorder when opened was radiating heat from within. First time it has ever done that!

Had the same proble with my two three year old Panasonic PV-DV203 camcorders. Blue screen only. I purcahsed a TDK mini DV head cleaner and ran it in play for 10 seconds. Now both camcorders play and record again. Good luck.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Loads tape then stops - won't play rewind fast


Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.
Blessings,

Help!! No playback!!


First try a cleaning tape, if that doesnt work it most likely the tape path is out of alignment and you will have to send it in for repair.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

Can't fast forward the tape


For Models: CC6254, CC6364, CC6374, CC6384, CC6394 The Counter Memory function, which makes it easier to locate a specific tape segment, has been activated. To disable, press COUNTER R/M for less than one second until M disappears. The tape may also stop because it has reached the beginning or end of the tape, depending of course on whether you are fast-forwarding or rewinding.
