Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a canon zr100 and when i go to play mode it has these lines and i cant fix it. ive tried rewinding it, fastforwarding it. I've tried using a head cleaning cassette tape but nothing will work. and i havent done anything wrong with it... is there anything else i can do it fix it?>
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).

This sounds like the record heads on the camcorder are worn. The heads can be replaced however it would be considerably cheaper to buy a new camera
