panasonic tape jam

i have used the new PANASONIC AY-DVM63AMQ MASTER MINIDV TAPES and have good success, until the seventh tape. saw a 'clean head' warning light, although the camera was recording (parent on hummingbird nest). rewound tape to see if it could be replayed...and low and behold the replay was stuck, then stuttered, then played, then skipped. couldnt believe it. stuck in another new tape and everything was 'clean tape heads' message and replay was fine. checked the tape out with glazers camera in seattle, and they had the same problem, their canon xh a1 could not replay the mid section of the tape, where i had the error message. the first 25 minutes could be played back, after that disaster.

just a warning, carry extra tapes. i have used panasonic for years and really am frustrated with the first cassette problem. and it has very hard to get footage. any suggestions on what to do? bill
