The first portion of the recordings I have made on the tape currently installed in my JVC digital video camera, Model NO. GR-D270U has black lines across it when I try to play it. The second half of the tape isn't showing any recording at all. Instead, a blue screen appears when I try to play the video I've recorded more recently. Any suggestions?

The best way to download pictures and videos from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures and videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo/video management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
Polavision is a totally dead instant movie system which was discontinued over thirty years ago. If you can still find any original unused film cassettes they will very likely be useless even if they have been kept refrigerated for all of that time. Whether the camera will work reliably on your hard to get film will also be highly questionable.
Unless boxed and in absolutely mint condition, complete with all original accessories, the camera is utterly worthless. If it is in factory fresh condition then it's still likely to be near-worthless unless collectors are competing to buy it.
As you plan to convert any film you shoot to a digital format anyway, you'll be far better off using a modern digital video camera and then using software to create the old amateur home movie look that you want.
You must have intended to post this question in the digital camera section.
Not all digital cameras record sound with video, especially cheap basic models or older models, but your question is impossible to answer in any definitive fashion unless you state the make and model of your camera.
There were only two type of video tape available for consumer in the 70's. VHS and Betamax. You can still find good working VCRs to play those tapes. Please take a tape to local electronic retailer and they can help or direct you to correct VCR player. -James
these cameras when taken apart actually have a AA battery inside for the flash. If the camera has been on the shelf for a long time then you may have old battery. Check the date on the camera and be sure that is at least two years past current.
