I have these lines on my screen and I talked to a couple people about and they suggested get a head cleaner. So I did and did what the package says but now i get a buzzing noise when I close the tape compartment all the way and a flashing "D" with what looks like an eject symbol next to it and it says eject on the screen too.
I think u are using pre recorde cassetts that were recorded on any other camcorder.. Samsung D363 supports ntsc not pal.... and the cassetts recorded on pal must have prob with ntsc based device... all u have to do is record cassette with the same and then test playback...

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.
I have a sony 14E and suddenly it stopped playing and recording. With vertical lines on the screen I knew to clean the heads. No effect on the recording/playing malfunction.
However I persevered and it seems to have worked in it is now recording and playing back. The steps I suggest, with PERSEVERANCE, are :
1. Clean the heads (I did it 3 times in all, with about 1 hour between each session);
2. Leave the camera open (tape section) for about 2 hours and put the camera (with or without tape) in a warm place. (I also had condensation messages).
3. Once it is warm put in a recorded tape and attempt to view it. At first I had "dirty" vertical lines for a few seconds but it cleared and played normally.
4. If Step 3 still does not work repeat 1 and 2. As I said PERSEVERE.
If Step 3 works then try to record. It should work hopefully. If not, repeat 1 and 2 (shortening the "Warm Up" time).
Good luck. I hope mine continues to work OK now. It is to do with dirty heads and coldness I think.
The video heads are clogged or broken. Remove the cassette cover and in the middle back of the mech is a cylinder, this is the drum assy. You can gently spin the drum and look for a black piece of carbon (tiny). This is actually one of the heads. You can take a swab (Q-tip) with liquid head cleaner and very gently clean the heads (more than one) wipeing horizontally, never vertically to clean the heads. Inspect for broken heads as well.
I had this problem a lot on Labtops. The problem is that it has been unliquifed in the screen. This means that the screen has been damaged or has got really hot. Also its has been on for along time. LCDs go bad real quick and can be a hassle when you need the infomation in the thing and have no display. When I had this problem on my labtop, I used the external bay to use another monitor so I can work on it. So I say that nothing can be done to fix it. The only way to see your stuff on there is to use the video out on the recorder and try to check your stuff. That multicolor lines you saw is becoming major right now in LCD displays. I hope this solves your problem.
