My best guess would be that the video head needs cleaning. Check with your local Radio Shack or video store for a video cleaning tape.

TAPE MECHANISM WON'T ROLL THE TAPE, IN EITHER RECORD OR PLAYBACK


Problem with the tape transport mechanism; could be the rollers are not contacting the tape itself or it could be the springs in the transport. Sounds like an older model. Could clean the rollers with alcohol and swap and if you can open it a like observe what happens with the rollers when you place in playback. These are rather delicately adjusted machines. I would again 1) try cleaning as best you can and very light oil in moving joints/gears aferward. 2) check adjustment of springs when moving from stop to playback. Once you have that whipped the record mecanism may start working as well.

Voice and Picture are breaking up when we review previously recorded movie. Do we need to use a Head cleaning Tape and where can we purchase one in Brisbane Qld. Thank you Joan Cox



This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Recording and Playback error


I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am having the same probelms, and I would appreciate any help with this since I am shooting a childrens camp and I am fairly isolated and don't have the time to swop cameras or send it to get fixed. I need to know if the recording is fine (video and audio) but the playback is not working correctly...or is it not recording correctly or playing back correctly. The sound cuts out from time to time in playback. Thank you.

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

Recording


of course, the first thing to check is the record protection tab on the cassette tape. other than that, check inside the camera to make sure a small piece of tape label or plastic isn't stuck in the mechanism, perhaps keeping the record protect sensor switch from operating.

Camcorder problems


wow this is an old post...but mine used to do that back when I had a charger for it haha...I tightened up the video tape and make sure the tape didnt have wrinkles in it too...and it seemed to alleviate the problem if not for one recording...the stop and go recording though thats when this emergency eject happened to me...but was resolved with my just turning the wheels in the tape to tighten the tention...of course it sometimes didn't work cause I didnt get it tight enough you just gotta play with it...if all else fails send it to the shop though...
Sincerely,

Picture and sound is skipping or stuttering during playback. It happens when playing any video.


This was often caused by mixing brands of tape. Do not use head cleaners more than absolutely necessary. More than half a dozen times or so, and heads are toast.

Use quality tapes of the same make/length, from new, and you will be fine. (the coatings on the tapes vary, and can/did interact with each other.)

Will not play back


Usually if there is no impact injury involved or nagging intermittent past problems, you probably have a head cleaning issue. Try a dry type (reccomended) cleaning tape. Should be able to purchase at Best Buy or similar store. Good luck, magic seadog

There is no voice when I replayed the camcorders


What happens to the audio when you play the tape in another machine? Does it still drop out? Check the tape visually when it has no sound and see if the edge of the tape is creased. Also is the picture OK when the sound goes off. Does it jump around ans lose sync. If it does it means that the tape is mistracking. It's possible for the tape guides to go out of alignment but usually this is accompanied by picture breakup too. If you've never done it before don't attempt to realign the guides youself, you can really put it out of alighnment and it will damage the tape. Is the microphone built in or removeable? if it's the latter then check the connections and make sure nothing's broken. If there's a switch to go from internal mic to external mic see if it's switched to the proper position, it could be half way between internal and external. I'm opting for a tape problem, Either way a trip to a repair shop may be the best bet. BMW
