Question about Video Cameras

Lines on video

My family does a bit of water skiing and when recording on my JVC Everio GZ-MG50AA recorder, playback has fine vertical lines which are very distracting and make the picture blurry. Whenever the suject moves or the camera moves, even slowly, this happens. (VERY slow moving or still objects come out quite clearly but it's really annoying trying to watch any action!) 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?

Re: 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.

My JVC GZ-MG21EK won't turn on, record, or playback unless it's plugged into the mains. It works perfectly when it's plugged in but won't function otherwise, no matter how long I leave it to charge.

Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. When I searched Amazon for "JVC GZ-MG21EK battery", I found lots, from about 9 pounds sterling ($12).

JVC G-z-mg365bu video management file is broken to record/playback video. recovery is required recovery

For broken files, everio will prompt you to recover once switched on. If you mean deleted by accident, you can use file recovery software like Final Data Enterprise and a lot more. Mostly can be recovered, sometimes 80% or 90% of your total recording. Good Luck

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.

Playback on PC has no sound

Are you playing the video back through the camcorders utility ? Sometimes by clicking on the file through windows explorer you will get the picture but no sound, this happens for the Sony camcorder but is fixed by running the playback through the motion picture browser application supplied with the camcorder.
