Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
I get a blue screen when I press PLAY, and the audio is distorted.
I had this problem last night but the audio was more clear, so whatever this problem is, it's getting worse.
I put a Head Cleaning Tape in last night, and that solved the issue for a little bit..... but today I'm back to the same problem. The Head Cleaning Tape isn't fixing it this time.
Is it possible that the Head Cleaning Tape needs to be replaced?
The heads are clogged or the alignment is out. In either case, a professional cleaning and alignment should be done. This should not require any parts, just labor. Bring this to a shop as specialized equipment and tapes are required for proper alignment.

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
