Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.

Thanks.

Play back poor now Camcorder does not record


The head is dirty or bad - insert a brand new blank tape in the camcorder and perform a record through the entire tape without stopping the process until it finishes the record all the way through - this should clean the heads. Playback a pre-recorded tape. If it plays back ok then attempt an actual record. If unsuccessful, then the heads are bad.

While trying to upload video i get std playback is locked


According to page 89 of the manual (available here), you need to set the playback standard (HDV/DV) of the camcorder to match the standard used when recording the tape. Instructions for doing this are on page 40 of the manual.

Playback STD Locked Playback is Restricted message


the tape most likely has the lock switched on, it's secured so no one can even view it, why it happend, beats me, look at the bottom of the tape, if it has the lock switch, and is pushed up to "lock" push it back down, if  that doesn't work than I'm not sure, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58

Playback won't work


needs to be cleaned and possibly tension adjustments. most cases this will fit it but the video heads could need replacing.
