The blue screen indicates that there is no video signal received. This can be either dirty heads or bad video heads. In most cases cleaning the heads will resolve the problem. Try inserting a blank tape and playing it all the way through. Then while in play mode, hit the rewind as if doing a reverse search. After that, try the original tape again. The blank tape will act like a head cleaner. If that fails to resolve the problem, the heads may need cleaning by a pro that will use a solvent.

    Does it playback if you plug the Camcorder into an electrical outlet?

    It isn't a dirty head issue. You have have playback to fix it anyways.

The heads are dirty and you are getting sufficient digital dropout to cause the blue screen. Try a cleaning tape. If that fails to correct hte problem, then the alignment needs to be checked by an authorized service center.

Cannot play tape.


Sometimes that happens to me too. What I do is just push play, then fast forward, and normally if you watch it, the picture starts to come back. Just keep fast forwarding until you can see all of the picture, and you should be fine.
