no playback on Sony Z1 except blurred fast-forward
on Feb 1, 2012 at 5:22:32 pm

Hi. I wonder if anyone can help. I just shot an interview on a Sony Z1. Brand new Sony tapes. First tape can only be seen on fast-forward. Second and third tapes are fine and have been uploaded into hard drive with FCP. I have no idea what happened to the footage on first tape. Blue screen when play is selected on playback on camera and can only see blurred image with fast forward pressed. No settings were changed during filming of all 3 tapes. Can anyone help please?

This typically means you have a clogged drum head. The RF signals inside the unit need to be re-aligned and a cleaning is needed as well. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to retrieve that footage you recorded as well.

Thanks for your information Chris, The Z1 that I hired looked like it had had a difficult life, and after reading your post, I can imagine now that a clogged drum head was the cause.
I reshot the interview using a much newer Z7 and all came out fine. Best regards, Aubrey.
