    I was actually replying to someone else's post, so maybe this doesn't make sense -
    I have a Panasonic-PV-GS150 -- about 2 years old. Suddenly, it won't playback anything. Seems to be recording, but cannot play anything back. It's almost as though it's a foreign tape or something in it. It sounds like it's going forward and backwards as I push the buttons, but there is no recording data (date etc) that shows up, and the screen stays blue. As though there is nothing to playback. Thanks!

    I am not trying to use the wrong type of tape. I am not receiving any kind of message regarding dirty heads.

    Thanks

    If you attempt to play back file recorded in a
    different format or file data is defective, the
    whole display becomes bluish.


    Pls try using a different format of image.

    hope this help

    If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
    CLEANING” appears during recording. During
    playback, moreover, the following symptoms
    appear.
    ≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
    sound is interrupted.
    ≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes
    appear.
    When normal playback cannot be performed
    even after the head cleaning
    One possible cause is that normal recording
    could not be performed because the heads were
    dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
    and perform recording and playback again. If
    normal playback can be performed, the heads are
    clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
    conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
    recording can be performed.
    ≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
    the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
    cassette.
    ≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
    interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
    malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
    cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
    or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

Is there any way to join the different MTS files into one only. I have used TsMuxeR GUI but in the video created, there is always a delay. Any ideas?


I've lost count of how many times I've heard people complaining that the software hasn't caught up with the hardware. That’s the case we stand with AVCHD camcorder. And seems the only thing we can easily do with the AVCHD video is to play it on an HDTV, direct from the camcorder. Isn’t there any easy way to playback and edit the AVCHD (m2ts, mts, ts, trp).

If you have not been able to take advantage of the AVCHD file format or still got no luck to get it out into the world to playback and edit. AVCHD Converter for Mac should be the matured software you’ve always been looking for. The software includes all the necessary codecs needed to transcode the AVCHD to .mov, mpeg-2, mpeg-4, DV, avi, mpg, wmv, flv, asf, 3gp and mp3, etc so that they can be workable with Quicktime, iMovie, Final Cut Express/Pro on Mac.

AVCHD Converter for Mac is able to run both on Intel Processor and PowerPC, and the smart built-in player can easily playback AVCHD files on Mac with high visual quality. Mac AVCHD converter has simple yet powerful video editing capacity that allows you to trim, crop, add effect and merge files into one. You can also adjust aspect ration to widescreen 4:3 or16:9, and tweak resolution, bit rate, frame rate, depending on your project.

Cannot play them


Oh boy the 8mm tape will work in a hi 8 playback but the resolution will be just 8mm
Just the same if you have hi 8mm tapes you can record on then with regular 8mm cameras.

Don't use the card to copy to computer put the card in the camcorder and use the software provided if you have a pc to import into pixela or a more advanced editing software that is avchd compatible...will do the trick...

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice


Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)

Fire wire and video driver problems


Horizontal bars on the LCD display is ONE indicator of a dirty playback head on the camcorder. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning the playback head. I had to do that on my SC-D365 yesterday (9/7/07) and it cleared up the problem. Good luck!

Jvc 200u problem recording to vhs video tape, from camcorder


Yes, if the camera is a US camera then it is NTSC. That would be your problem, you are trying to record an NTSC signal to a PAL video. THe frame rates and resolutions are all wrong. I am even surprised that it is playing back on your TV okay...

Video playback is not smooth while playing via USB 1.1


USB1.1 port can generally handle transfer speeds approaching 5.5Mbps between PC and DVD Camcorder. Smooth playback of movies requires 5.5Mbps speeds or above. If the PC you are using has some compatibility issues with the USB driver software, the USB port may drop to speeds below 5.5Mbps causing short pauses during video playback. It is recommended to copy the movie file from the DVD Camcorder to the hard disc drive (HDD) on your PC, then playback the movie from the hard drive.
