Question about Fuji DVC-M60 Mini DV Tape

1 Answer

Mini DVC Tape

I have the Panasonic camcorder. I made 6 tapes of my honeymoon 2 years ago. I put in the first DVC tape to watch it and it works fine (I am watching it through the camcorder). When I put in the second one, it is all choppy. The sound is not there, and the video feed jumps. I purchased the head cleaner for it and nothing changed. So all the other 5 tapes do this except for the first one. When I first video taped my honeymoon, the video (DVC) played back fine with no issues. I shot more video today and it played back with no issues. I don't know what to do or how to fix it and I really don't want to loose my honeymoon video. Hope you can help me out! Thanks, Luigi

    Yup, same problem with a Canon. It is particularly problematic in the first 5 minutes of tape. I had returned the camera just prior to expired warranty, they cleaned the head, it worked about once and still has problems. Seems like the tape is slipping in the drive, because it 'pilxelates' the playback and then I get the "Eject tape" message. Thought it might be an issue with low quality DV tapes, but brand doesn't make a difference. Suspect it may be a drive issue. Unfortunately, I think this form of media will soon be obsolete.

Cannot play tape.

Sometimes that happens to me too. What I do is just push play, then fast forward, and normally if you watch it, the picture starts to come back. Just keep fast forwarding until you can see all of the picture, and you should be fine.

Please help...Blue Screen of Death?

try a head cleaning tape. the blue screen is what is displayed when the heads are too dirty to read the information on the tape. if the head cleaning tape doesn't solve it, a hand cleaning should do the job.

Incompatible Tape

try a cleaning tape first - best not to rewind the cleaning tape because it will put back the crud previously removed ? into your heads and guides ( last tape to play is prime suspect ) ; - - digital heads wear faster than analog so a new set of heads is next possibility but if the cleaning tape works . . . retire your library soon as possible .

My tape player in my video camera isn't working anymore...

repairs will cost close to replacement and - it will be older ( needs new heads , probably ); buy a new one , and get a repair quote on the old one - or ebay it , for parts ;
