Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV520 Digital Camcorder
Video has lines going through it. Audio cuts in and out and is very fragmented. May have been coincidence, but this only appeared to start happening after the camera went though airport security x-ray machine.
This problem is caused by misalignment of the entry and exit guide posts that feed the tape around the rotating head drum. It's fairly straight forward to have these aligned using a test tape and an oscilloscope. This work needs to be done by a professional but should take less than an hour for someone with service manual.

It could've fried it or it could be the memory card
