Video Jumps on Screen

I have a Pansonic DVC7. A friend borrowed it and said the image on the LCD screen kept jumping when you watched what you recorded. Also when you transferred it onto the computer it came out all jumpy. He claimed he cleaned the heads and fixed the problem, but as soon as he gave it back to me and I used it, the footage was all jumpy when I transferred it to the computer. Does anyone know why its doing this and how to fix it? I told my friend it's been acting like this since he gave it back to me and he claims he fixed it and I must have done something to it. I need this camera for work, and so I need it to record perfectly without jumping the image and breaking up the sound.

Re: Video Jumps on Screen

Sounds like the cleaning job wasn't good enough to get all the dirt. Try a Panasonic cleaning tape; if that doesn't work, find a local repair shop to do a good hand cleaning.

How do i repair lcd screen no image

the rear screen for my Sony cool-pix camera went bad without notice; I simply went to YouTube, watched the replace screen video, went to radio shack and got a 7 dollar set of tiny screwdrivers; then went to eBay and bought a replacement display screen for dirt cheap. Removal and replacement of the screen took less than 15 minutes and less than 25 dollars

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos

Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully

When i play the video tape, the picture is like pieces of puzzle

that kind of happened to me, except there were gray horizontal bars going across my screen. I could only see half of what I was watching. Turns out, I just kept playing the tape and they magically went away. crazy but true. Now the only thing I need help with is getting the tape in it, as the camera won't take any tapes.

Horizontal stripes on play back

the stripes are caused from one of the heads on the dd cylinder not updating. you need to stick a head cleaner in, if that does not solve the problem then either the head is going need a thorough clean or it is damaged. it will need replacing.

Sony TRV38 HandyCam - Blank LCD problem

i think i have a solution, still experimentinh on it. i have a drv model of sony handycam. it was showing a blank screen for quite few days. Sony service centre asked for 16,000 rupees to replace major parts.i declined and kept experimenting at home. i played the video and kept accessing the memory stick through lens and lcd screen simultaneously and switch off and on giving time gaps. day 1- it was still blank. day 2- ther was flickering when i switched on the cam. but i kept repeating this process of playinf video and turn it off wen it was getting very hot. day 3- camera started showing images very wide. day 4- it started capturing images properly. Voila! but the images were dark and grainy. this is the current status now. i hope it becums better. i wish this works for your camcorders too. All the best!
