Question about Canon ZR500 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Camera works perfectly well but when I try to play back the footage on ANY tape there are 2 solid, light purple lines across the screen during the whole playback.
What are the purple lines and how do I get them off????

SOURCE: Playback & Ejection Problem
Hi, You usually get an EJECT TAPE when the camcorder has found an internal problem and either the videocassette or the camera itself has developed a problem. In you case, it looks like you tape has a problem. Daniel

the tape most likely has the lock switched on, it's secured so no one can even view it, why it happend, beats me, look at the bottom of the tape, if it has the lock switch, and is pushed up to "lock" push it back down, if that doesn't work than I'm not sure, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58

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).
