Question about Sony DCR-PC55 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Grey lines during playback on touch screen

I have this problem with the Sony DCR-pc55. I have used the Dynex head cleaner with no results. Is it an issue that can only be solved with another "special" head cleaner? Thanks for your time.
Kind regards,
James

On a Sony Handycam DCR-HC28 there are grey lines running horizotally during play back mode. Both on the camera touch screen and on our TV when we play it back.


Cleaned my heads and internals with alcohol and q-tip and blew it out with compressed air( LIGHT PRESSURE) approx 30 lbs press. works great.

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.

Grey lines


I have had this problem myself, and it is nothing more than a head cleaning issue, from my experience. Sometimes, when a head cleaner will not work, the camera requires proper maintenance. The problem arises through long pauses, and over time. A suggestion for better use perhaps, would be to not pause tape for too long when playing back. Based on personal experiences.

Cannot find a head cleaner for Sony Digital 8 (DCR-TRV460)


Yes you can clean the heads. It's a delicate procedure, but, requires no disassembly. But, I'm curious about your mention of "blurry spots." Typically, on a digital camera, the video when the heads are dirty, will either just appear as a white screen, or, will come out blocky and glitchy (like poor satellite reception). "Blurry" would result from a dirty lense or filter. However, to clean your heads, I would run to Radio Shack and buy cleaning fluid refils. Take a Qtip and dampen it with the cleaning fluid. Open the camera, remove the tape and look for the video drum. Lightly rub the Qtip along the drum horizontal to the spin direction (not across the grain). Turn the drum and clean until you have swept the entire circumference.
