Question about JVC GR-DVL120 Mini DV Camcorder

JVC GR-DVL120 Playback

I have a mini DV tape that I recorded but in play back I only see blue on the screen. I have in the past viewed the tape so I know the video exist. I then took a new tape and recorded with the same result in playback. If I put in on "A" or "M" to record the LCD shows that I'm recording and you can see the images on the LCD but then in playback it plays in blue and with no sound almost as if I was playing back a blank tape.

Any Ideas?

    I have the same problem with the playback of a recording appearing with a blue screen, and I have used the tape before, as well.



    I have just now cleaned the heads twice now, and it is still doing the same thing!



    What do I do now?

    EXACTLY the same problem...played first tape fine, next tape, blue screen, no timecode. Won't play any other tape now.

Panasonic pv-gs15 will not play back recorded video in the mini dv deck. all i see is a blue screen with red text ''picture'' on bottom right corner of the screen


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?

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.

Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape


Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

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.

PV-GS9 mini dv playback problem


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.

These 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.
