Hi!
The video head has to be cleaned. You should take it to a local camera service center and let them clean it. I don't recommend the cleaning tapes. I know this problem, I work in a Sony service center and repair camcorders too.

Hope this helps!

Check the cable going into the back of your monitor and the cable from your monitor into your computer, one of them is most likely loose.

Red and yellow line across the screen.


From the description the LCD screen will need to be replaced, first! hook a spare monitor to the video output on the back, if picture okay! the problem is the above mentioned, but if both screens show the same symptom it is the video graphics card.

Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel on the laptop is faulty and must be replaced. If both show the same system it is the Video Graphic Card that is defective and usually built into the motherboard.

On my screen there are vertical colored lines going across in different distances from each other.


This not a good sign, but first hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if okay! it indicates the panel display is bad and must be replaced, or there is a remote possibility the video cord from the motherboard to the screen may be loose, and will need to be reseated back in place. But if both screens show the same problem it is the video graphics card on the motherboard.

On my cannon digital video camcorder ( model MV730i) i am trying to play back some footage i have taken but on the view finder (and also on my computer when i transfer footage over) the picture is coming...


Possibly dirty head and/or dirty tape.Maybe even wear-out tape,too.
But the worst scenario would be faulty or damaged head,which would be not worth repair it.

Grey lines during playback.


Hi,
Camcorder video head required cleaning because gray lines come in playback when video head got clogged/ dirty.
Put video head cleaning tape and playback it as per instructions.
hope this will help you.
Thanks.

Okay well if the images are okay on the PC and don't have any black lines across them it's just the LCD screen. Very expensive to replace and unnecessary if it's still working okay, it's a shame it wasn't still under it's 1 year guarantee; unless you extended it that is.. and you could take it back to the shop for repair or replacement.

Pink or grey horizontal lines on video download or viewing


I have the same issue and have for over a year (haven't had the time to send it to Canon for a few weeks to analyze, but have cleaned it numerous times). But I can tell you that the problem is internittent and the recordings are fine. Eventually, don't know the remedy, but it will suddenly stop doing that and I can download fine, and watch on camera fine. When it does happen, I just keep recording. It never shows up permanently. I re-tyr downloading or viewing and about the 3rd or 3th time (let it sit for a few hours between) it is normal!
