I've reinserted cassette, tried another new cassette, checked for dirt etc. It was working the day before, it will record but on playback the error code and message appear, and tape stops.

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)


Hi,The video tape runs through a path which includes video heads and an audio pick-up head. This audio head reads the magnetic information on the tape and then sends it through an audio circuit for processing. If there are any particles t ... Digital Cameras

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras

I have a tape stuck in the Sony CCD V8afu video camera. When I press the "eject" button, the tape disengages from the recording head, rewinds and is ready for the tape carrier to "pop-up." It just does not "pop-up." Any solutions, as the stuck tape holds our childhood memories? Thanks.
