Whenever i record something onto my Panasonic PV-GS9 it works fine. When i try to playback the thing i recorded it just sits at the blue screen doing nothing. When i press play or FF or Rewind, it shows the icons and i can hear it but the screen stays blue. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I covered several threads that recommended buying a Mini DV cleaner and
running it up to 4 times. They also suggested to change to change your
video tape as it may have been the cause of the original problem.
solutions may have worked for many but not me. My camera was becoming
progressively worse. It went to blue bars and no sound to no picture at
all...just blue. After using a cleaner 4 times I became frustrated to
the point I was going to buy a new camera.
However, with the
camera still playing, I did the typical guy thing and rolled up my fist
and gave it a good hit along side of it. Remarkably it went back to
just the blue bars. I hit it again and it went back to a perfect
picture. I'm not saying this will work for you and hitting it too hard
could make things worse but I was at a point where I didn't care any
more and took a chance that paid off.

Make sure your tape tab is open. See if this works. Sometimes the tab should be closed to prevent eraser or recording over existing film but sometimes the tape tab has to be open to allow for playback or dubbing?
I have a Panasonic PV-GS9 mini DV Camcorder that is not recognized on my computer. I have windows Vista and I have it plugged in via my USB port but it doesn't recognize it and I do not have the disc. Please help me I have to put this recording in AVI format now.
One possible cause is that normal recording could not be performed because the heads were dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads, and perform recording and playback again. If normal playback can be performed, the heads are clean. Before an important recording, be sure to conduct a test recording to make sure that normal recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning, the problem may be the tape. If so, try another cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be interrupted momentarily, but this is not a malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)
