If recordings are only blurry and snowy on playback on camcorder, but are OK on a different camcorder or on computer, then the problem is a dirty magnetic head.
Use a mini-dv head cleaner tape.
If recordings are blurred even on pc or on a different camera, then there is a fault.
Faulty CCD sensor, faulty digital board, problem with internal ribbon connector, and dirty or defective lens assembly can cause this kind of problem.
It is very common when the magnetic heads got dirty. Buy a Mini DV cleaning tape, follow the instruction clean the heads by playing the cleaning tape for a while. Record NEW video and playback to test.
Please know if you play the old video recorded buy the dirty heads, you may not get clear picture, because here is not correct data recorded on the tape.
When was the last time you "cleaned" the heads? Use a good commercial
head cleaning tape. They have both "Wet" and "Dry" types. I prefer the
"wet" over the dry. I think it does a better job but they are hard to
find sometimes. you can also do it manually with "foam" swabs and "methanol". Alcohol works but the methanol leaves less residue behind.
If that doesn't solve the problem the next step would be to take it to a repair shop for cleaning and re-alignment.
please try to playback these new recordings on some other Camcorder. If you experience good picture on the borrowed Camcorder it means that the video head is (partly) damaged. In order to cure this the video head is to be replaced. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references.
I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not.
Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage.
Let me know how it goes.
