Hi there Anthony and welcome
If you play the movie back through the TV, so you also get a blank screen there?
Please let me know
I need to know though, If you play the movie back through the TV, so you also get a blank screen there?
on the Mac, the video being played on the Macs Screen is also blank correct?
ok, can you put a different Tape into it, then try recording and tell me if this comes up blank as well please
It is either the heads are dirty or they have failed. This will be what is causing the issue.
What you need to do Anthony is purchase a cleaning tape which you can get here
You then use this to clean the heads.
Once done, try to play back the tape. If it still will not play back. then it means that they heads have failed.
With a camera of this age, unless you can locate a secondhand camera with the heads working (so the power supply or something else has failed) and you can change the heads yourself, then it is more economical to purchase a replacement camera as they do not make the heads anymore plus you would only receive a short warranty on the repair.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
You can also use a company to do this for you Anthony
this one you send the tapes in
And they send it back as a DVD or digital file
