Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460 Digital Camcorder
While videotaping or recording video in a stationary position with both models the playback seems fine however, if either camcorder is moved to track an object or by quickly zooming in or out, the playback video displays a mosaic pattern for a period of time until the camcorders become stationary.
The mosaic pattern is an indication of an old video head( or dirty head). The playback of a recording in a stationary position will not show the mosaic pattern because there is no movement in the picture.
Use a head cleaner cassette to resolve the problem.
If the problem is not resolved , take the camera to a repair centre for replacement of the video head.

Comon sony issue. Proble is low torque tension on the head and on clean of the video head. Sony's don't have alot of tension on their take up reel though. I can increase this for about $100 on most models. www.megaone.com/larry

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
