Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV103 Digital Camcorder
When trying to play previously recorded material, the audio and video is choppy. I've tried other tapes and get the same problem.
OK, yes, it probably does relate to a tape tracking problem, but does knowing that help you out at the moment, I had this same problem and I scanned for solutions and somewhere I seen this remedy and it worked, remove the battery and take your open palm and give it a sharp rap at the bottom rear corner, a good solid one but not enough to damage the cam. Hope it works for you.

I had a similar problem and finally figured out to just remove the battery, wait a few seconds (be sure the power cord/charger is not plugged into the camcorder) and then reinstall it.

If you havent cleaned your camera with a tape cleaner (which they do work with damaging the heads) try that first. if problem still exist then you most likely have a tape path issue, which is out of the ordinary it is wear and tear and they do need maintenace periodically.
