1 Answer

Scrambled picture Monitor shows clear picture during recording but when I rewind and playback the picture is completly scrambled horizontally and zig-zag throughout. Went to the menu but do not understand some of the prompts so didn't fool around. Tried the horizantal and vertical hold on the monitor but no success.

If your video looks good on a monitor then more then likely your ES3012-5MLZ30PW is good....I would try taking the video from that camera to a different input on the recoding device to see if the problem follows....If you don’t have a different input try a different camera and record for 5 min and then playback to see if dose the same thing.....You can also take the video feed from the ES3012-5MLZ30PW to a different recorder and see if the problem follows....good luck and let me know if this can always call Pelco at 1-800-289-9100 they do their tech support 24/7 365.....they really set the standard in tech support....

VCR JVC HR-J470EU. During playback, the SP is no picture and sound is sputtering, at Rewind the tape, the image appears. By pressing the menu it sounds normal. LP Recording and playback is OK. Vasek.

Time for a new set of heads. They are worn. A head cleaning tape usually causes the issue you have with your machine. Pity, nice machine.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:

This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

Cannon PowerShot A80. Pictures come out with red tint and what appears to be horizontal lines across complete image. However, record video without problem.

If camera shows previously taken pictures in playback mode and does notshow live view to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chipfailure. CCD imager will be replaced in your Canon A80 camera.
Canon offers free of cost ccd imager replacement, click Canon CCD Imager Advisory for details.

Choppy recording and playback

If the heads become dirty, “NEED HEAD
CLEANING” appears during recording. During
playback, moreover, the following symptoms
≥Mosaic-like noise appears partially or the
sound is interrupted.
≥Black or blue mosaic-like horizontal stripes

When normal playback cannot be performed
even after the head cleaning
One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

No pic or sound when recording

Please get a Hi 8 cleaning cassette and run it in the camera for a few seconds. you may have to do this several times for the head to be completely cleaned unfortunately for Hi8 you will not hear the sound when there is no picture on playback.
