We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up. Like looking at the image through venetian blinds. They stay on the screen for a few seconds and then disappear. We bought a head cleaner and ran it through last night and are continuing to use the camera to see if it occurs again. We are using 60 minute Maxell tapes. We have tried Sony tech support which is an absolute joke (they should be ashamed)!!! We have 60 days left on the warranty and want to get some answers so that we can make a decision to either take it back or resolve the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there: Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.
A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.
When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter. In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Sony Handycam DCR-SX33
I shot some video and when I try to play it this message comes up :
"No applicable files available"...what does that mean
The display screen has a grey sort of sideways broken chain on each little film I shot
Any info or guidance most welcomed
The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.
