Question about Sony Video Cameras
Most likely the capacitors on the PCBs have started to leak. This will happen when a camcorder sits unused for awhile. A good test of this is to power the unit on, let it heat up for about 20 or 30 minutes, then open where the tape goes and smell it. If it smells like fish, your caps are leaking. (Capacitors contain fish oil) If this is the case, unfortunately it is not cost effective to repair. Also, another sign of leaky caps is if the image in your viewfinder or LCD is rolling, smeared, or distorted. Hope this was helpful to you. www.austintelstarservices.com

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.
