I have had my digital camera for approximately 4 years going on 5, I have never cleaned it in all the history I have had it, however up until a couple of weeks ago when I pulled it our & tried to record something, the LCD screen had "Cassett Cleaning" across it, & then it automatically switched off recording mode, however whilst this was happening it had a beeping mode. I have since tried cleaning it several times, & it has done wonders for playing back tapes I previously recorded, however if I try to record something new, & then play it back it has grey lines appearing through the picture.

Re: Not recording clear.
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 have had this same problem with Canon digital cameras. It seems that either the contacts in the camera or the batteries make a weak contact. On one such camera I can move the battery cover back and forth across the batteries and it will sometimes made good contact. Try cleaning the batteries with steel wool. I am not sure how you can improve the camera's contacts.
Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
1. Remove the batteries from the camera then clean the battery contacts 2. Remove the memory card 3. Insert the battery back on the camera in correct position 4. Place the camera in Auto Mode (auto mode is the green camera icon on the dialing mode) 5. Try to turn it ON (if still doesn't turn ON) 6. Charge the camera plug the USB AC adapter into a working power outlet. 7. Connect the USB cable to your camera and to the USB AC adapter. 8. Camera will charge until light turns off or (up to 3hours) then test the camera if it will turn ON 9.
