Question about Panasonic PV-L601 VHS-C Analog Camcorder
My camera works fine while taping. The image in the viewfinder is clear. But upon playback the image plays with what looks like gray horizontal "bad tracking" lines. It's a Panasonic PV-L678. Can someone help? Thanks.

It is probably a dirty head. One camera i had i had to clean it much more often that i wanted to and certainly before any important shoot.
Here is a tip though. Always use the same make of tape (and code). If you do change your tape (or code) then clean the heads before you put in the different tape. this is all to do with "dry or wet" lubrication used on different tapes. i do not know enough about that to comment, but the tip comes form a very good source.
Some people run the whole tape through on record (with the lens hood on) before they use it. I do not think it will help for this problem, but you can try.

I had the same problem but without the needing cleaning message on my Pana PvGs12, weird as it sounded, I stopped it but left it on and gave it a whack on my palm and then tired playing it again and it fixed it. But I have heard it may also need professional head repair and that it may be out of alignment too? Try switching from doing it in the camera mode and or in the playback mode. I'd also try the reset button.

One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)
