I've just sat down today to transfer my holiday video but am having problems with playback on one tape.
4 on the tapes work fine, but I cant seem to playback the footage on the 5th. The camera merely displays a blue screen and you can here some occasionaly choppy sound. When I fast forward the tape you can see all of the footage is there (albeit with banding due to it being forwarded). I have tried cleaning the heads but its still the same.
I have also tried recording some new footage on the tape in question today (about 5 seconds worth) and this plays back fine.
I'm confused as to whats going on, and a bit gutted that my once in a lifetime trip to Oz could be lost!
The camera is a JVC GR-DX27EK, if this is of any help.
Any advice or help would be very much appreciated.
