    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.

My Sony DCR-TRV740 camera I just purchased (used), has a playback problem with my 8mm's. When I got the unit I cleaned it well with chamois swaps and MG video cleaner(Recommended by all experts it see


You have a clogged video head. It happens. Do not use the chamois again. Instead, purchase an 8mm head cleaner and give that a try. Only use a brand name cleaner - no generics, and make sure it doesn't come from China!

My DVM70 will not play back the tapes. I can record and the screen looks like it is recording just fine, everything looks normal. When I go to play the tapes back on the camcorder the lcd screen is blue...


ES MUY POSIBLE QUE EL CABEZA L DE VIDEO SE ENCUENTRE
SUCIO LO IDEAL ES USAR UNA CINTA LIMPIACABEZALES O USAR UN SPRAY DE LIMPIEZA DE USO ELECTRONICO (DE LOS QUE NO DEJAN RESIDUOS OLEOSOS) ,APLICANDO PEQUEñOS CHORROS SOBRE LAS GAPS DEL CABEZAL ROTATORIO , ESPERAR ALGUNOS MINUTOS Y CARGAR EN LO POSIBLE OTRA
CINTA EN PLAYBACK ,TAMBIEN SE PODRIAN LIMPIAR LOS CABEZALES AVANZANDO Y RETROCEDIENDO RAPIDO UNA CINTA

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.

No playback


Even though my husband cleaned the head with a q-tip and alcohol, I decided to purchase a cleaning tape. I popped it in and it worked in less than 15 seconds! It was expensive, $18, but not nearly expensive as a new camera!

Camcorder wont playback recording


Dear Lauren,
You didnt write camera model and make. any how, you need Head Cleaning Cassette for your camera to clean its video heads. Video heads are dirty/ clogged so camera doesnt show picture in playback. Please dont touch video heads physicaly because it may broken easily. always use video head cleaning cassette.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


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.
