VCR mode is not working - the video playback doesn't appear

Hey guys,

I am in deep trouble: just last week my borrowed camera Sony FX1000 HDV 1080i was working fine, but today I wanted to log and capture several mini video cassettes into final cut but it didn't work.

I could only see the blue screen - the camera was rewinding, forwarding, it even played - but no sound or picture was shown in FCP or even on the camera LCD screen. I plugged the camera out of the computer, tried to switch it off, used a different battery, used different tapes that worked before, tried to record stuff and its always the same - i can, rewind, forward and play - the minutes are running, but i only get the blue screen in the vcr mode as well as in FCP or imovie.

I am very thankful for any suggestions.

Sounds like you have a clogged drum head. This wont allow you to record or playback because the RF signals are way off. When is the last time it was serviced?
