This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

SOURCE: Video playback is distorted and has no sound

NEVER EVER CLEAN THE DRUM WITH A Q-TIP! The heads are not encased in epoxy like they are on a cassette deck head. In a video drum, they have a small open space around them -and- they stick out slightly, so a Q-tip can and almost certainly will snag on it, either leaving fibers behind or snapping the fragile and brittle ferrite heads. You want a special chamois VCR/MiniDV head cleaning stick. It is flat and has a piece of smooth chamois bonded to it. Do NOT just buy a car cleaning chamois, that's like buying a paper towel to clean a lens instead of buying a special lens cleaning cloth. Those foam lint-free Q-tip type swabs are NOT good enough for the video drum, either. The foam can still snag on the heads. Otherwise, good info. Cleaning tapes should never be rewound and re-used more than a few times. You should only be playing them 10 seconds at a time, so that's a lot of cleaning. Here is a good link with more info than you probably can absorb: http://www.repairfaq.org/REPAIR/F_vcrfaq9.html

Remove the battery and or the power supply (plug), leave it out for a few minutes, then reattach. This should solve your problem.

Let me know if this helps....

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen


Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

Horizontal lines on playback screen


Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment going off. My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).

Horizontal snow lines on record and playback


the symptom is caused by a dirty video head. sometimes cleaning tape cannot do all the jobs, especially when the dirt is so much that any cleaning tape cannot remove it. open the cover, use a clean white paper dampened with a little alcohol. use your finger on the paper and gradually move the head drum back and forth. donot move the paper up or down. just move the drum slowly. good luck!
