Oh no! Bad tape problem...

O.K I was shooting a meeting video last night with my HC-9 and when I hit record an error message appeared saying that my tape head needed cleaning. The warning covered most of the LCD screen. I put in a new tape and it seemed to record just fine. I shot three tapes total.

The first tape however has a problem with its first three minutes. I don't get a video signal (blue screen) but I do get the time code. However, if I play-fast forward I can see the video image--but it goes back to blue screen when I enter play again.

Any idea on how to get these three minutes off the tape. I've cleaned the heads, of course and tried a second camcorder (HC-7) but no improvement.

Help!

Anyone? Guesses?

I'll send this off to Sony Media Services on Monday but would love to resolve it more quickly...

Thanks,

Darin,
See my response to similar issue on this thread. Maybe they should be combined
