This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I DID NOT USE MY TVR460 VIDEO CAMERA FOR 3 YEARS. NOW IT IS NOT RECORDING OR PLAYING ANY TAPE. IT CAN RECORD AND PLAY ONLY ON SONY MEMORY STICK.


Recording / Playback head is metal with a thin gap which quickly becomes corroded from simple condensation - unless stored with water absorbent material in airtight container. Sorry, (you needed a newer model anyway) ;-'

Unit does not record. The counter & LCD screen are on. The motor is driving the tape. When played back there is nothing on the screen. There is nothing on the viewfinder either.


Tape heads may be dirty; run a cleaning tape through as per the instructions. If the tape heads are damaged/worn-out then the drum will need replacing.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view tape...no time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????


If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

VCR won't tape and get no playback


First check how good / bad are your recordings. Take a current / recent recording done after this problem cropped up, and play it back on another VCR - maybe a friend's. If the recording plays back badly- showing the symptoms you described, then the problem is still dirty or worn out Video Heads. If the Recording plays back perfectly on the friend's machine, but plays back badly on your machine, I still suggest that you try cleaning the Heads one more time, and if the problem is not resolved, it is time to trash the VCR. One last question, you say that you have reset the channels. Are the reception channels' images clear? I may be able to give some more suggestions, based on this response.

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??


I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
