Will my camcorder still record even though I can't view playback

If you cannot view action on the cam screen and likewise when attaching it to the TV; the video playback function has been compromised. You may be able to record as the two functions are separate from one another, however what good is recording when it cannot be played back? If the Recorded material is on a Tape or CD and you can move material to another reading device or player; then your problem is answered.

How do i creat action (making 4 up ) in photoshop7.0? How can i creat an action in photoshop7.0? How can i remove bacgroung of photo in the place of head area (specialy hair cutting)?

There's a few things you ask here and as with all Photoshop processes there are a number of methods to get to your goals.
First up I'll tackle the Erase Background. What you've picked is something quite difficult - removing background around hair. I think maybe the best way for this might be to use the "Magic Eraser" tool, which you'll find by clicking on the Eraser (Rubber, where ever your from) and holding it down where you'll see 3 options (Eraser, Background Eraser, and Magic Eraser). Once you've selected the tool, up the top of the screen there are tool options where you can select the "Tolerance" which is the gammut of colour the picker will select, and select "Contiguous" for selective delete, otherwise it'll delete all that similar colour. If you choose to use the "Background Eraser" you use the same options but you choose a background colour and foreground colour, one is deleted and the other is erased.
the other method for deleting backgrounds is to use the "Magic Wand" and use the same set of Tool Options to set sensitivity with the 'Tolerance' and then once you have selected the area to delete, before you hit the delete button, set a Feather to the selection, this will soften the edges and make the erasure more realistic. (use a small feather of 2 or 3pixels).
OK, Actions. I love actions and use them alot. Once again there's a couple of ways to do this but the 2 easiest are ... with your 'Actions' pallette open, click on the options arrow on the top right corner of the actions pallete and select 'New Action' and Name your action and click "Record" - even though in this instance we are not going to Record the Action. Now go to the Actions Pallette and press the black square 'Stop' button to stop the record process. Go back to the Options pointer in the top right of the Actions pallette and choose "Insert Menu Item" - this will bring up a vaige window about no menu selected, where you go to any of the Menus at the top of the screen and select a menu that will do what you want (such as Filters/Sharpen/Unsharp Mask) and this menu now becomes your action so you either just hit the actions button or use the shortcut you selected before record, to save having to hunt through the menus all the time for regular things you use.
Now, the 2nd method to create and action is very similar - but first, open and image that you'd like to apply the action to and put it in the state you would like the action to start from (ie, if you need to crop or colour or size it first). Now go to your Actions Options and choose 'New Action', name it, apply a shortcut if you want, and hit 'Record'. NOTE that you are now recording and everything you do will be recorded in the action - now go about and do as you would like to the image, colour it, size it, unsharpen it, greyscale it, anything, and all these steps will be recorded. Once you have finished all you want to do to the image, hit the black square 'Stop' record button to end the process and this action is now saved.
Don't forget to go to the Actions pallete Optios and check 'Button Mode' to turn your actions into buttons for one-click instant access.
good luck.

Blue screen

In the playback mode, the screen is suppose to be blue, till you start the tape playing, but if you get the blue screen in the record mode, I have not idea how to help you. You should see what the camera lens see, when in record mode.

No playback pics. Blue screen.Can't record.Used x2 since service.

I just made contact with a service tech who seems very competent and who won me over. Have problem with video and audio dropout similiar to dirty heads on a 10 year old DCR-VX2000 but which is a larger problem attributed to worn parts which will need replacement. Do not know how old your unit is, but will share name of person/company if you wish. Only thing that worries me is if you by chance had had yours repaired by them!!! They are a Southern California company.

I have recently bought a JVC GZ-MG142EK camcorder and I have a problem with a blue dot, which also shows up during playback on a PC or TV screen. Please can you advise how to remove this dot.

You cant in a word
This seems to me to be a CCD fault.
Unless I misunderstand you and the blue dot signifies an action you should take- or is a 'Recording' signal although these are usually red.=Check the manual re this
I suggest you contact the makers support website prior to returning to vendor.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40

You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.
