I am having the same problem with a Sony Digital 8, When I hit play I see blue screen buy when I press play and fast foward I see the same gray scan lines> Did you have a stuck tape or problems ejecting tape? I think it is more than cleaning the heads. When I try to record it indicates no tape in camera.
If you have had the camera for a long time, it may have simply died. This may not help, but you could leave the camera on untill the battery loses all power, then try to turn it back on, and see if it works.
your camcorder video head is dirty, use a brand new tape and playback for around 5 minutes or more, this will serve as your video head cleaner. you may try at least five times doing this: insert, play, eject,play, eject again. your camcorder has a built in videohead cleaner and activates only during insert, play or rec, and eject mode. If the problem is still there, manual videohead cleaning is needed, use clean bond paper and lighter fluid, damp the bond paper (Size about 1" by 3") with fluid and rub with care the videohead (not the bond paper!The vhead should be the one turning not the paper)by slowly turning the videohead against the paper. Be careful cause this is dangerous that you might brake the videohead permanently. apply only a slight force to the head.
just insert a brand new dv tape and let it record for 10 min.. rewind back to 5 min and start playing and do a repeated ff and rw you can see the black lines slowly going off..
all the best my friend
