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,

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.

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.

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.

LCD screen had two grey lines

I recently had the same problem. All I did was buy a Head Cleaner, followed the instructions, and now my camera works fine. It only cost me A$12 and I bought it from a shop specialising in digital video cameras. I hope this helps.

Sony dcr-trv120 playback

the problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.
