Question about Panasonic NV-GS200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Recently, when I have tried to record, red flashing lines appear on the lcd screen and through the viewfinder. They seem to centre around areas of light- if I record something very dark there are fewer lines. The sound is unaffected but the picture is completely unusable. Please help. I have tried nothing yet.
