The unit is smart enough to detect digital dropout which is what causes the stripes. Usually a cleaning tape will resolve this. If that fails to fix the problem, a professional cleaning will be in order and testing of the actual head should be done as well. It is also possible that there is some obstruction which is preventing proper tape movement. The bottom line here is that this unit will likely require a professional. Digital units are sensitive to alignment as well. A professional will have the necessary equipment to align it as well.

Please keep us posted on your progress.

Thanks,
Dan

When recording it shows that it is recording but we can't see anything. If we play back what we think we might have recorded we can only hear the sound but not see anything.


Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.

IMPORTANT: If additional model-specific instructions are needed to perform any of the steps below, refer to the operating instructions of the camcorder. The instruction manual is available in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony eSupport Web site.
  1. Ensure a fully-charged battery is inserted or connect the AC power adapter.
  2. Turn the camera on to the VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  3. Insert a cassette tape with recorded video into the camcorder.
  4. Ensure the cassette tape is rewound to the beginning of the video recording.
  5. Begin playing the cassette tape.
  6. If your camcorder has an LCD screen, try adjusting the brightness or contrast.
  7. If there is still no picture on the LCD or viewfinder, reset the camcorder to factory specifications

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

Camera does not record


First I would suspect the record safety switch on the cassette. Look near one of the rear corners for a little red tab. If it's closed (covering the hole), then recording is disabled on that cassette.
Is there any indication in the viewfinder that recording is disabled? Usually an icon like indicator showing a cassette with a circle and slash over it.

If that's not the case, you might have a problem with you're record switch. Try using the remote to do it if you have one.

Display shows a set of black bars


This is a common(ish) problem on the JVC models. In most cases running the cleaning cassette will work. If it does not work the first time try it a second time. Make sure you follow the instructions as provided by the manufacturer for the use of your cassette and any cleaning solutions involved. Use them in conjunction with camera's information.
