Problem with blue screen on my SharpVL-AX1 camcorder-video+playback does not work, but I can take still images with no problem
I have tried and use cassette cleaner to clean the head only once, but no result. I can take still pictures with no problem, but my video screen first started to pixolate, then the screen during recordings went mozaik-pixels and now it is only blue even if I try to playback any of good cassettes, it is only blue and does not work anymore.
I cannot record any more of video/and see any playback.
could you help?Should I try to clean the head with the cassette few times? What else could be the problem? There is nothing wrong with still images, only with video recording...last time I recorded in Egypt...
thanks a lot for your help
All the best

If your Sony DCR-HC14E shows fine picture in playback of old tapes and does not give live view in camera mode to record then its CDD Imager problem that Sony will repair free of cost. Click Sony CCD Imager Support for details.
Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks.
Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!
Regarding can't see picture or time code in playback, it is problem of dirty / clogged video heads. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette to clean heads and hope camera will show playback picture.
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.
a sony cleaning cassette may clear the gunk from
your friend ' s possibly ? bad tapes ( do not
rewind it - or the gunk will be redeposited ) ;
if still no video , get an estimate to have your
heads and guides cleaned . . . professionally ;
