Tapes won't play

Hello there. Recently I was viewing a mini dv on my JVC digital video camera when midway, the picture went blue. I checked all the connections and battery. All looked to be in order. I then tryed playing a different tape. Nothing. I took the tape out and put it back in. It played for a few seconds, then the picture went blue again. Any thoughts or advise. Thank you.

This is an indication that both data heads are dirty. In a digital camcorder both heads need to be operating correctly to obtain a full picture. Insert a new cleaning tape and run it for only 10 seconds or less, this should clear up the problem. Avoid using the tape that caused the problem. Do not use the cleaning tape for regular maintenance, this will damage the drum surface. Good luck to you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)

Download mini DV tapes to computer

Win 7 with it´s automatic driver download from internet, corel studio 12 wen it starts shows transfer mini dv to dvd, and a normal firewire connection (from the right side of the lens -hidden under rubber cover-) that allows corel to use the camera automatically when the camera is on play mode.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view tape...no time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????

If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.

Lines through the tape when recording or playing back

It could need a head adjustment. Any camera store can do that for you.

No playback on JVC GR-D72

It souunds like the problem is in the Vid-PC connection. I suggest you start by downloading the latest version of whatever software you have used to capture and view.

Also - uninstall any hardware in the PC that is used to capture (just remove from system device list) and then restart the PC and let it detect and re-install.

If you don't know how to do these steps, then you'll need geek help.

How can I play back a tape produced on the GRHD1U?

Tapes may be played back by the camera itself. If the tape was shot in the 720P (HD) or 480P (SD) modes, it cannot be played back on a standard DV VCR or camera. Tapes shot in the 480i (DV) mode are completely compatible and can be played back on any DV VCR/camera. In addition, tapes can be dubbed to a JVC HD DVHS VCR via the firewire connector.
