Sounds like dirty heads.
Use a head cleaning tape recommended by Panasonic.
After a few tries if it does not improve it would be best to take the camera for a professional clean including the tape path.
You may need to clean the head on the device. You can purchase head cleaning tapes from most stores that sell the tapes, or goto a specialist camera shop.
Failing that, open the tape slot, tape the tape out, and with a soft cloth see if you can clean the small silver heads very gently.
The symptom appears to be video head clogging. I would first try to use head cleaning tape. (use new one). Run the cleaning tape for about 10 seconds but not more and see if it resolve the problem. If not, camcorder need a tracking adjustment by a technician. Good Luck. James. For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
It is probably a dirty head. One camera i had i had to clean it much more often that i wanted to and certainly before any important shoot.
Here is a tip though. Always use the same make of tape (and code). If you do change your tape (or code) then clean the heads before you put in the different tape. this is all to do with "dry or wet" lubrication used on different tapes. i do not know enough about that to comment, but the tip comes form a very good source.
Some people run the whole tape through on record (with the lens hood on) before they use it. I do not think it will help for this problem, but you can try.
