Another mysterious timecode & record disappearence

Camera: JVC GY HD110E.
Tape: JVC ProHD miniDV.

a) First 3 miutes recorded (always get this in all my tapes) with bars & black screen.

b) First 10 minutes shooting sequences of streets my old part town.

c) Stopped, take a drink in the pub and continued the work recording about 15 minutes more.

Went to sleep without review stuff recorded.

e) This morning shooted 10 m more just after last night footage in the same tape inside.

After all this easy and normal work, log & capture to Final Cut and just at this point the camera LCD report the tipical message towards a "Head Cleaning Tape!". Efectively I see some block noise artifacts wile capturing footage at e) point.

And this is the mistery:

The 15 minutes recorded at c) point disappeared. No timecode, no records. Blank screen. Tape plays normaly this 15m time.

a), b) & e) footage perfectly visible & tape rolling on play mode while capturing.

My ask to the experts:

Is this possible due to a dirty heads?

Thanks in advance.
