Question about Video Cameras
From the instruction manual from Canon for the XL1S (I have the same problem):
When mosaic-like noise appears on the playback picture, the video heads
may be dirty. When the video heads are badly contaminated, the camera
may show a blank blue screen.
• For the best picture possible, after using the camera for approximately
20 hours, clean the video heads using Canon’s DVM-CL Digital Video
Head Cleaning Cassette. If the “noise”remains, repeat the cleaning (up
to maximum of 5 times).
• Do not use a wet-type cleaning cassette, as this can cause damage.

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a sony
This smacks of the same problem that the old VCR's used to have. One of you are out of sync. The tape records on a portion of the tape in a sort of straight line track. Think of it as your track is down 1/16" from the top. The other camera tracks it's video down 1/8" instead. That's why in playback it can't read it. The only cure is a realignment. Nimsgame
