I have a samsung scd103 digital cam and when i record something it looks good on the screen while im recording it but when i play it back there are grey lines and distorted sound

Have you tried cleaning the recording heads? Use a dry type cassette cleaner only. It's just like a vcr head cleaner tape, only in the small mini-dv tape size.

My samsung mini DV camera SC-D372 keeps flashing "Protection" on the playback screen

turn the camcorder off, take out the tape, look for the protection tab on the side of the tape and switch it to the other side.

protection is a feature of your tape to keep you from taping over important videos saved in your tape

My Canon ZR85 has no light in the view finder for recording images. It will play back tapes, but no images when you want to record. Battery is fully charged.

Will not show anything in view finder

I sent my camera to a repair center for samsung and they replaced the ccd at no charge and it fixed the problem. I have used it and all is working and playing the old tapes as well. Thanks for your help, but got the answer from a blog as well as the address to send the camera to. Have a blessed day.
