My sony handycam wont register the tape - only shows blue screen and wont show recordings.. HELP!
Hi there. the other morning my sony handycam (model DCR-HC30) was working fine but then later on in the day it just did something funny. when we go to playback the tape it just has a blue screen and doesnt show any digits in the top corner as to say how far in the tape you are. it just has --/--/-- . you can hear it rewinding but still no digits come up and it wont show you anything on that tape. so confusing and frustrating! i hope you can help?

Hi, If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen. Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem. Video-8 head cleaning tape is available with amazon.com Thanks.
If your Sony DCR-HC14E shows fine picture in playback of old tapes and does not give live view in camera mode to record then its CDD Imager problem that Sony will repair free of cost. Click Sony CCD Imager Support for details.
Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.
