It sounds like your saying the gray lines are appearing on your camera and on the tv when you play from the camera but not on your brothers camera. It sounds like your heads are dirty. Get a head cleaner and you should be good to go. Please take a moment to rate my solution fixya.
Thanks and enjoy,

    You have tried different tapes as well I am assuming? Then you will need to have the camera professionally serviced. If you need help locating the nearest authorized service center please let me know. Please reconsider your rating as you should find my information at least helpful.
    Thanks,

I have a sony handycam - dcr-pc109e. When viewing a tape, there are grey horizontal bars across th screen that have just appeared. I cannot seem to get rid of them. Any ideas please?


Gray horizontal lines appears when video heads in camera got dirty / clogged.
Use good quality video cleaner cassette to clean video heads, problem will resolve.

We have a sony HVR-A1E Camera, are using the AV connecting cable and unable to get it to connect to our tv play back footage. Can you help?


Just a thought but have you got the right format selected?

Try this;

Press 'P-menu' on screen, then select 'VCR HD/DV'.

Make sure that you then select either DV or HDV depending on which format you filmed in. The 'auto' function doesn't always select the right one!

There are lines across my screen, i think i openend the cassette door before i hit stop. now there are lines across the screen that won't go away. it is a canon and it takes mini dv's.


Your video heads are clogged or broken. Most likely if you will purchase a mini-dv head cleaning tape and use it, your problem will be solved.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent...


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.

This should work as long as you have the correct converter ring for the camera.
