Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)

I have the same issue myself with my gillion of family tapes and my Hi8 unit broken! The only remedy I have found is to either invest in a new lower price HI8 unit, rent a unit and get my transfers done, or pay to have the old tapes put on dvd professionally. None of these options are too appealing to me, but really seem to be the only options available. If only HI8 had an adapter like VHS-C! I personally would look on some of the online resellers to see if you can obtain a unit that is lower priced to meet your needs. Investing overall in a Hi8 as your only camcorder is not advised, due to it being almost obsolete technology.
I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
