Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I turn my camera on and saw horizontal ble lines when trying to view a tape. The Camera is a Panosonic DV GS15. Is it necessary to get the video head changed or is there another solution to this problem?
If you dont have time to get it fixed, tap on the side where the tape goes in. I had to tap it a couple of times before everything started work fine again.

I had my camera heads replaced twice under warranty to eliminate blue lines it is a head problem. I believe the camera is very easy for the heads to misalign. It is working now but when it acts up it will also eat the tape inside

I have the same problem on my PV-DV953D, but the lines are red. They show up 90% of the time in any light condition.

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
