Camera Will Not Play Back Video!!

I have a tape that I know has audio and video on it, yet, when I put it in my camera it does not display either. The count goes to zero and the screen is blue like the tape is clean. You can hear the camera moving like it's running but it doesn't play anything. It rewinds and fast forwards, but no playback.

Normally you receive a head cleaning tape with the unit or you should purchase one and let it run untill it stops playing. i suggest you run it 2-3 times if this does not solve the problem then you may need a head chage. the change will have to be done by a qualified technician.

Everything works except it doesn't display any video while recording but will when playing back tape from another camera. Records audio like it's supposed to. Camera was in storage for 2 years.


Hello Howard

I am thinking/sounds like that the problem is in the LCD display. How old is the camera, as it been stored in a safe location to avoid any serious damage and/or a dry location. Could possible where the display opens on the camera. May be you could find a local Sony dealer to take a look at it for you.
Please let me know the out come of your camera.
Ben.

The cameras tape moves when you press play or rewind or record, but when you try to play it does not display the content on the tape, the time on the tape does not display and count up or down.


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.

Recording and Playback error


I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am having the same probelms, and I would appreciate any help with this since I am shooting a childrens camp and I am fairly isolated and don't have the time to swop cameras or send it to get fixed. I need to know if the recording is fine (video and audio) but the playback is not working correctly...or is it not recording correctly or playing back correctly. The sound cuts out from time to time in playback. Thank you.

I am having the same problem. When I hit Rewind or Fast Foward, i can see the image moving clearly.
When I hit play though, I just get a BLUE screen with the Play arrow displayed. So it's playing, I just got a blue screen. And last night, I got the blue screen but I could hear the audio. 
Then I put a head cleaning tape in the camera, and I did get the picture back on for a little bit.
Skip to this morning, and we are back to the Blue screen again. Only this time, I am getting no audio. And I the head cleaning tape back in but it's not helping anymore.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.

connect a lead via your tv video out audio out jacks. Select tha appropriate channel (You may have to go through the av channel on you tv and tune in the channel you want to record) or, video or dvd player audio out video out jacks. connect other end to your camcorder. Select on the camcorder menu video in audio in. Turn on tv. If connected to video or dvd player, press play. Press record on your camera. When finished recording press stop. Presuming the camcorder is tape, you can buy a tape adaptor to play or record your mini tapes in a standard video recorder, then take them out of the adaptor and play them back on your camcorder. You can also do all this via a computer. Also if the camcorder is disk or hard drive it can be used the same way as a regular dvd recorder to record tv programmes once connected to you t.v.

Playback Problems


Ditto. Old tapes seem to be related to the problem. All I have to do is put in a new tape, play it, remove it, put the old one back in and it will play normally again. I can't explain why. I know the camera has an automatic tape detection feature and I wonder if it is at fault. Perhaps the camera has trouble detecting older tapes and the brains get scrambled. A new tape resets the detector. It's just a guess.
