You may have a heavy clogging of the heads. The head cleaning tape will not serve in this situation but manual head cleaing from trained technician. Head cleaning service shoud go around $100. Same symptom would happen when the tracking goes off on GL2 and this may cost more to adjust. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
You did every thing right. Audio is effected by clogged video heads and the audio circuit. At this time, you might look at the service by professionals. 50% chance the audio problem could be resolved by cleaning video heads and tape path without much adjustment, you cost would be around $100-150. If this does not resolve the issuie, Camcorder need repair and would run $250-400 for GL2 model. Good luck. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
You may be the victim of dirty clogged head. When the tape is incerted on GL2, it is searching for the data from the tape but if the heads are clogged it will not communicate so, the processing computer think the tape is damaged. Procedure to clean the head. This may not clean but let's try. Purchase a head cleaner tape and run it for about 10 seconds but not more. Try to insert regular clean tape and try it. If this does not resolve the problem, GL2 need cleaning and adjustment by technician. Good luck -James. For further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
The immediate remedy may be cleaning the video heads. The head is not receiving the data from the inserted tape because it may be clogged. Use head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds but NO MORE. Try again, if not you may need to clean and adjust by trained technicians. Good luck -James. For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
Trained technician can clean the video heads individually and manually but I do not recomend it for general public. Best you can do is to purchase a good head cleaning tape. First, dust off the tape loading area with can air, then run the head cleaning tape for 10 seconds (our general recomendation is 5 seconds) but NO MORE. hope this works. -James.

Thats a possibility. I don't know why it costs so much since all you have to to is take a small screw driver and adjust the audio head. You might try cleaning it with a DV tape cleaner and see if that makes a difference. It's cheaper than the repair shop.
The control track on the tape is not being sensed properly, or there may be a fault in the capston circuit, or capston drive.
There are a number of issues that can cause this:
This can be a dirt film on the control track head, or the main video drum heads, or warn head surfaces. It may also be an alignment problem due to warn parts. The electronics that read and process the control track, or video synchronization processing may have a fault.
The first thing you can do as a user is to clean the tape path. It is safest and usualy works well to use a cleaning tape for your camera type. Follow the instructions for the cleaning tape. The cleaning tape has a surface on it that is supposed to clean the head surfaces without causing a disturbance. Usualy the time required is about 5 to 10 seconds, depending on the model of the camera and the type of tape format.
Read the instructions that comes with the cleaning tape. It is not recomended to re-wind and re-use this tape.
Past this point, the camera will have to be serviced.
Check with previous recorded tape, If it is not playing. Clean video head with head cleaning cassatte.
Before that please check is it going to VTR mode & also is it takes play indication. Then check with pre-recorded cassatte.
best of luck
