Hi. I have an old Sony ccd-TRV46E camcorder. I cannot play back tapes on the camcorder. If I ffwd or rew, I can see recording on screen but I cannot view recording in normal play mode.

Your video head is dirty and so the pictures are seen with noise while it is fast forwarded or rewound.
You need to remove the tape door cover and carefully clean the head tips using a good spray on the tips head, DO NOT TOUCH OR USE ANY HARD MATERIAL. Using a head spray or a head cleaner you can use a paper softly along the head not to press hard but to wipe off the ferrite or fungus clogged on the head.
warning : the head is delicate and a wrong wipe can damage it. there are tiny slots on the head at the bottom where the tips are seen.

Switch Control unit, having Stop, Play, FF, Rew, Pause and Tele-Wide switch at top of camera is cause of this problem. Its ribbon wire has been damaged / cracked, going to camera board. You need to replace that complete part because ribbon wire is not available individualy.
