Sony and the other media suppliers do not recommend re-recording over any digital tapes, including MiniDV. Re using tapes can lead to dropouts and errors after only a few times. With MiniDV prices so inexpensive these days (in the grand scheme of things), is there any reason NOT to use new tape? Also, many companies keep all their MiniDV tapes as a kind of stock footage archive. You never know when you might need a shot that you have already filmed, and it saves considerable time and money to pick the tape off the shelf.

Use a brand new blank tape and perform a record through the entire tape. Do not use a head cleaner - they could damage the heads.

Blue screen on lcd screen


The playback head is probably dirty and cannot show the picture - the screen is blue. Run a blank tape in the tape drive and execute a record all the way through the tape. Then play back a pre-recorded tape to verify it plays back ok.

Black and white playback with sony handycam dcr-hc20


There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks

your pal tapes played - in a separate pal player - shows whether your camera ' s tape guides are still in alignment ( your monitor must also be capable of playing pal ) ;
