Question about Canon ZR800 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I've encountered this exact problem a month ago, except cleaning the heads did not fix it. However, I was able to find an alternative solution...
After leaving my camera closed up in a drawer for a few weeks, I decided to take it out and leave it in the sun for 15 minutes, assuming that perhaps the gray bars were a result of moisture damage. The next day (Today, to be exact) I turned my camcorder on, and the gray bars have gone away from playback, as well as the reduced sound quallity it caused.

I looked up this problem on some other sites and they all suggested a dirty drum or dirty heads. I ran a cleaning tape (available at any Best Buy/Circuit City) through it and now every thing's working fine. Hopefully everyone who had a similar problem can solve it the same way.
