Try first a Tape cleaner and a new cassette and start from scratch... and check if your camera is not damaged internally and it is actually recording and not just spining the tape to the end and rewind to find nothing on it. You seem to need serious repair. This means it needs a tech to have a serious look at it.

My canon camera seems to work fine in record mode. The LCD shows the video and the timestamp, and tape is moving. Yet in playback mode no matter what Tape I use (even if I know the tape has video on it)...


The playback head is dirty. Insert a brand new tape into the drive and perform a record, through the entire tape until it reaches the end. Then play a pre-recorded tape.

Blue screen on lcd screen


The playback head is probably dirty and cannot show the picture - the screen is blue. Run a blank tape in the tape drive and execute a record all the way through the tape. Then play back a pre-recorded tape to verify it plays back ok.

I had the same problem with the DCR-TRV250 where it just stopped playing back tapes. It appeared to be recording correctly but upon playing it back, all I got was the blue screen. I tested the USB, SVideo, and DV outputs and got the same blue screen.

After weeks of deliberating, I finally decided to try cleaning the heads and that cured it! I removed the screws that allowed me to remove the transport assembly cover, which made it easier to reach the heads with a Qtip. I cleaned them using rubbing alcohol and everything seems fine now.
