the video head of your camera is dirty or need for replacement...but first clean the head using a blank new tape,don't use a cleaning cassette cause is too rough for the head just think using a sandpaper to the head what would happen it ruin the head...just forward the whole tape then play the recorded tape...5 times as it needed...if nothing change then it time replace the video head....

Hey,

I just started to have the same problem, 5 grey lines and intermittent audio. I the settings and i tried different tapes and No Joy. Then I tried to record onto an old tapes to see if the new recording would do it and the camera showed me a strange icon for exposure. I set the exposure back to 'Easy' and Viola, I recorded and the playback is now clean. Even old tapes play OK now...

The settings must have gotten wacked somehow. I glad it worked out, good luck.

I don't have specific editing software, but I recently bought windows Vista 32bit. I have a Panasonic NVGS15 video cam. When I try to connect the DV cam to the computer via a USB, it keeps telling me the drivers are not valid for this OS. Which then means when I go into movie maker, it doesn't recognise the camera as connected. The Panasonic website does not have any new drivers.Where do I get the drivers to down load the same

You are probably more of a person into the actually editing of cameras than the technical know how for this type of problem, but I thought I would give it a try.

Are you trying to shoot from a TV or computer monitor? If so, check the frame rate--30frames per sec (fps) or 15fps. If it is on 30fps, changing to 15fps should solve the problem.

5 Grey Horizontal Lines across the screen during play back and distorted sound.


Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment going off. My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).
