Question about Sony DCR-PC55 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I bought my sony dcr pc55 in 2005 and have been really happy with it. I have been using it every now and then (vacations, Bdays etc). While previewing what I have recorded a month ago - three gray lines now appear all accross the images. The gray lines are still there even if I use a different tape that I have recorded 1 year ago. I know the tape is fine since I have transferred it to my computer and the movie is OK, no gray lines. When I record on a new tape and try to preview - gray lines again. If I transfer the clip to imovie for example - the transfered images have 3 lines conatining multicolored pixels instead of the gray lines. Should I be looking for a new camcorder or is this fixable? thanks Nick
