Question about Sony DCR-HC52E Mini DV Camcorder
There might have been some sort of residue on the "bad tape" that you played in this camcorder. If you are only getting a blue screen when trying to play back your tapes now, you should try a head cleaning tape. Play the cleaning tape for 5 to 10 seconds and then try your tape again. If it is not all better, repeat this process (only in intervals of 5 to 10 seconds at a time). A head cleaning tape is a little more abrasive than your regular tapes. This will probably do the trick for you. Sony makes an excellent miniDV Head Cleaner. If you do not have one, your local camera shop may or you can find them online reasonably priced.
Hope this has helped you.
