blue lines at the beginning of a tape?
on Oct 21, 2008 at 4:00:54 am

I have an HVX 200 and do very little with tape. I am logging 4 DV tapes and 1 of the three starts out blocky for a few seconds and sometimes when I start from the beginning I have blue lines that look horizontally stripped interlaced with video.

The tape was recorded on a sony camera. The beginning of the tape is also showing up with a negative timecode.

Any suggestions on this? I was the shooter on the other camera and didn't notice anything. I spot check my tapes. I am responsible for this to my client. Any suggestions will help

Thanks in advance

Try running a head cleaner- it's possible the Sony camera also had dirty heads. You might need to get that camera to successfully digitize the footage.

I tried the tape cleaner and there isn't too much of a difference. I am going to have to get the sony camera.

Should I clean the sony camera head before I try to put in the tape?

Sure it can't hurt.
