Playback doesn't work. No lights, no action.

Same situation with mine. Suspect the "ribbon" connector between the VTR controls and the rest of camera.

Panasonic pv-gs15 will not play back recorded video in the mini dv deck. all i see is a blue screen with red text ''picture'' on bottom right corner of the screen


Make sure your tape tab is open. See if this works. Sometimes the tab should be closed to prevent eraser or recording over existing film but sometimes the tape tab has to be open to allow for playback or dubbing?

I have a JVC GR-DF450U camcorder. The playback works fine but the is no display when recording.


If you mean no picture during camera mode(that is all black screen), Something must be done to your camera. Iris motor unit fails to open causes the problem of no picture since iris is close. Solution, clean iris curtain, needs skill. I suggest have it checked by qualified person. Hope it helps, Good luck

Sony CCD-TRV65. Blue screen during playback


Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks. Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!

Cannot view playback!!!!


First thing to determine is if your (Playback Mode) is set for Auto or Hi 8 / 8. Select VTR setting and then select Menu. Scroll to PB Mode and select Auto. Now try playback.

No power after plugging in the external power adapter


I believe sometime when you insert the AC Adaptor while the power switch still on in CAM mode or VTR mode the sparking cause the micro fuse protection blew up it require a qualifier and trained from Sony to repair it
I had this service manual how do I post to you it big about 15MB
I sugges to bring it to Sony for repair it sometime they can not repair at component level they replace a complet PCB and it need the computer to setup and adjust and highly cost
I hope that give you some ideas

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.
