Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Please, please can someone help me !! I recently purchased the above camcorder (about 5 days ago). I have noticed that when I try and play back the recording and view it on the LCD monitor it has about 5 black lines of equal width and spacing horizontally across the screen. I am using a genuine JVC tape and original battery. How do I get rid of this, or what have I done wrong. I am unsure if it is operator error or there is something wrong with the camcorder. I look forward to a reply.
I have the same problem with Sony TRV140 and the dealer is suggesting replacing the head at a cost that is more than half the cost of a latest model video cam!

I have the same problem and the vendor cleaned the video head. cleaning the video head did not seem to fix the problem..did you find a solution..

Mostly this is the result of defective or dirty video head. simply clean the video head by using head cleaning cassette. If it solves the problem, well, but if the problem remains contact the vendor.
