Question about Panasonic PV-DV201 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Won't play tape

I have a Panasonic PV-DV201D-K mini and am having problems playing the tapes. When you try to play the tapes, it does not play or on the rare occasion it does play, the picture is mostly colored blocks. It will fastforward and rewind, but no pictures appears when the play button is pressed.

Did you solve this? Also, could you be more specific? No video on either the LCD or in the viewfinder? Both when trying to record and when playing back a tape?
