Blue screen on playback footage

2 tapes' worth of footage was shot with this camera. On reviewing the tapes for digitizing, the 1st was fine but the 2nd tape has only audio--the screen shows nothing but a blue tone. Towards the end of the tape, the video footage miraculously appears. What is going on??

I have a JVC GR - 65 moviemaker. when I try to export the footage from my tapes to digital. the footage goes all glitchy and stutters not being able to see a clear view of the video any ideas ?

It's possible that the issue is related to a problem with the tape itself, the camcorder's playback mechanism, or the connection between the camcorder and the device you're using to digitize the footage.
Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Clean the camcorder's playback head: Over time, the playback head on your camcorder can get dirty or clogged, which can cause problems when you're trying to digitize your footage. You can clean the playback head using a cleaning cassette or by using a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol to gently clean the head. Be sure to follow the instructions in your camcorder's manual.
  2. Check the condition of the tape: Your footage may be glitchy or stuttering because of a problem with the tape itself. Check the tape for any damage, such as wrinkles, tears, or warping. If you notice any damage, you may need to try a different tape.
  3. Use a different playback device: It's possible that the issue is related to the connection between your camcorder and the device you're using to digitize the footage. Try using a different device, such as a different computer or a different capture card, to see if that helps.
  4. Check your capture settings: Make sure that the settings on the device you're using to capture the footage are set correctly. Check the resolution, frame rate, and other settings to make sure they match the settings on the camcorder.
  5. Try a different cable: The cable you're using to connect your camcorder to your capture device may be faulty. Try using a different cable to see if that helps.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be worth consulting with a professional technician who can diagnose and repair the issue with your camcorder or provide other troubleshooting options.

I recorded 2 hours of footage this passed weekend, just as I was finishing the head cleaner warning came up. I ran the tape through. I tried reviewing my footage today with playback and it is acting like...

I've had a similar problem, the solution to mine was that one of the tape heads had moved out of position by a fraction and so it was having problems tracking back through the tape footage... if you put in a tape that you know isn't blank and press play then hold fastforward to skip through the tape can you see footage on the tape fast forwarding? If so you need an engineer to realign the tape heads for you.

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice

Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

Time code problem -- footage disappearing

Menu setting - the time code is simply resetting itself.  If you intend to edit your footage with NLE software this will be a problem, otherwise no issue.
