your heads need to be cleaned with a cleaning minidv tape. about $20 for one of them, otherwise you will need to fork out a bit of cash to get the heads replaced... probably better jut buying a new camera - a hardrive one!

I have the same problem: Technical Service says flexible tape between LCD and camera could be open in some lines. The solution is to change that tape.
