Vertical lines on video

My family does a bit of water skiing and when recording on my gz-MG50AA recorder, playback has fine vertical lines which are very distracting and make the picture blurry. I have tried all the settings I can think of without any success. At the moment I'm getting much better quality video with my fuji digital camera than the camcorder, which sort of defeats the purpose of having it! Any tips please?

My JVC Everio GZ-MG135aa fell off of it's tripod stand and now the lcd is white on the right half and has bright lines on the other half (this is all it will show) If I hit record it still records and...

LCD panel needs replacing - this is the classic case of detached screen ribbon, which unfortunately is not repairable without silicon printing equipment which costs thousands. Also check playback on another device (ie streamed through your PC) to make sure the heads haven't become misaligned.

Solid blue lines through Picture on playback mini DV PV-gs19

One possible cause is that normal recording
could not be performed because the heads were
dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads,
and perform recording and playback again. If
normal playback can be performed, the heads are
clean. Before an important recording, be sure to
conduct a test recording to make sure that normal
recording can be performed.

≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning,
the problem may be the tape. If so, try another

≥During playback, the picture or sound may be
interrupted momentarily, but this is not a
malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible
cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt
or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)

Lines on video

I've found out that if the little internal battery that holds the date and time is run down, then the camera can't focus on moving things well. I left mine plugged in all weekend, now can record action. Some can be replaced - like a big watch battery.
