Hi,
If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.

Viewer gets lines in it and that tells it needs cleaning. It has not been usesd alot and I need to use it


You can purchase a head cleaning tape.These work vert well. You just put the cassette into your camera like you would a regular tape cassette, then play it for ten sconds only. Don 't rewind. You can keep using it in ten second bursts uintil the problem is solved. If the problem is not solved in this way, your camera probably needs a new video head. This worked for my Sony Handycam and I can't see why it wouldn't work for a Panasonic.

Xl1s issue


You mentioned that you were editing it out which means that it is the video recording issue. When video recording has light or sligh pixilation on the side, the head may need cleaning or tracking system may need adjustment. Initially, try to clean the head with a tape head cleaner, run it for about 10 sec but not more. It this resolve, it was simple head clogging. Otherwise, camcorder needs adjustment by technician. Good luck, James. For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Head cleaning.


same problem in SHARP camcorders.

SHARP offers no satisfactory solutions.

Possible SHARP does not even manufacture a head cleaning tape.
If they do it is TOP SECRET.

I will never buy SHARP again.

Head cleaning


As per our live chat - once the heads have been cleaned twice consecutively they are almost certain to be damaged and need service or replacement. The manual in english is here: http://books.jvcservice.com/booklist.asp?Model=gr-d250 Page 44 is very clear on this issue Hope you get a solution from it :)

Vertical lines while recording Canon zr100 camcorder


I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.

How Do I Clean The Heads?


Clean the inside of the camcorder with a special head-cleaning cassette which can be found at most Electronics Stores. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper use. If the cleaning cassette fails to adequately clean the camcorder heads, have them cleaned by an Authorized Service Center.
