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 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.

Camera won't record/ play footage.

Video head was dirty / clogged due to old tapes usage so it did not recorded any signal on tape and now it requires cleaning with good quality head cleaning tape to record and playback properly.

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.

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.
