PD 150 will record but,during the play back you see several horizontal lines covering the image. What causes it? & How can we repair it? Please help. I used a brand new tape & I have used this...

The problem is of drum assembly which normally called Head of the camera, it needs replacement. When horizontal or vertical lines appears it means the drum start malfunctioning and it needs replacement. For this please see the link click here.

I am getin aproblem to capture from my sony pd

If is not fisical break od DV convertor on camera for firewire, then you have problem with damaged ic circle on board in camera. It`s very little chance that you can fixed that by yourself. It will be problem to change main board or circle DV interface. All of  this is complicated and expencive. I recomended you to buy one of Sony cameras ,mini DV. All of that cameras can read DVCAM and you can put everything in your PC. This is cheaper then fixing your camera. I hope that I was helpful!
