Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I get lines and squares in the tape playback
Someone here recommended taping with the lense cap on in a quiet room for 5-10 minutes. When I played it back, no more skipping or gray lines. This worked for me!!!!

I was gonna say the exact same thing, video that looks like its got fuzzy lines and "squares" means the heads dirty. I bought a head cleaning tape and never had a problem since

Get a good tape head cleaner and clean the heads several times. If that doesn't do it, it'll need a tape track adjustment.

Would a different head cleaner work? I previously used a panasonic. I tried it 4 or 5 times and it still is doing the same thing.

please state the age of your devices. It can help a great lot in solving your problems. The lines that you get aren't continuous, are they? They appear to be going up and down, are different sizes and shift as the tape plays, yes? well, this is simple. You need to clean your recording head.
