Re: Distorted crackling Sound Recording
Hi this is a fault alot of people have it usually starts to happen when you have been recording and then a loud noise has happened this then damages the mic on the camcorders. The problem you might have is going to be getting a new mic fitted as alot of the newer camcorders they dont sell replacement parts unless its a top of the range one but if the parts are not available then their is no way of repairng it the bets thing to try is look in the phone book or online for a camera repair shop or even ring a camera shop up and ask them if their are parts available for your camcorder let me know if you need further assistance

There could be several reasons for badly distorted pictures. considering the age of the unit as DV camcoder which I am guessing would be quite a bit. Most likely the heads have worn out and need replacement. I am assuming you have this problem with newly recorded tapes being played on a TV directly from the camcorder. For this you may also need to check if you are using new tapes and whether the recording mode is PAL or NTSC as per the TV format.
Alternate test would be to play back a previously recorded tape back from the camcorder. That way at least you can establish if the problem is the read head or the write head or the tape itself.

What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
