Hi, I have a problem with my camcorder. To start off, it is a Sony DCR-TRV19 1chip miniDV camera. I know it isn't very good, but I'm a novice filmer. It has worked fine for about a month and a half, and allegedly hasn't given the previous owner any problems either. However, I now have a problem with the camera. I can set it to Camera, and everything will seem to work fine. The picture displays, I can start and stop recording, and everything. But when I set the camera to VCR to replay footage or capture it, the screen will stay blue. I can press the play button, and the camera will "play" and roll the tape, because when after it's played for a minute and I press rewind, it will whir and rewind to the beginning. The numbers at the top that would usually display the time in the tape are just lines. I've tried a brand new tape, and nothing changes. It appears the the camera isn't recording anything, but even when a filled tape is inside, still nothing will play. That's about it to the problem. Hopefully I've provided enough detail and someone can help. And hopefully it's a problem I can fix and not something that will cost the price of a better camera to fix. What can I do to fix it? Thanks for the help in advance.
