Question about Video Cameras
At first nothing would show on playback. But after recording a few seconds went back to play and it worked, but those lines come up. Ive tried manually cleanning the heads, someone suggested recording for 5 to 10 min with cap on, in a quiet dark place.. did that too.. nothing works.. I also tried "aligning" with the "plus" "minus" screws inside de camcorder.. nothing works .. i dont think is adefective drum because it has happened before and somehow goes away but this time it hasnt! please help.. I need an expert!

SOURCE: LINES DURING PLAYBACK
Fast forward and rewind a cassette several times without using A/C, to drain the battery. Recharge the battery; and you may have found your solution. If that does not work, replace the battery- online auction sites have them for about 10 bucks. If that does not work, start saving your pennies- the prices have come down so much on these things that you can get a high quality Samsung that will everything but outperform your existing camcorder- for $135 USD. Good Luck

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).

The video heads may be clogged. Depending on the severity of clogging, if minor, you can clean the heads with the head cleaning tape other option would be manual and direct cleaning by technician. First, open the tape loading area for dust removal by canned air, clean pinch roller with Q-Tip using denatured alchohol and try it. If it did not do the job. Assigne it to a technician for about $99 for a professional cleaning. Good luck -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
