I have been given a good secondhand camcorder, Recording looks OK but playback is a blank screen with odd lines and shadows, Have tried head cleaning with Sony cleaning cassette but no joy. Any way I can solve this problem (adjustment etc.)?

OK, if camcorder playback old recordings properly and does not show live image in camera mode then it gets ccd imager chip failure problem. CCD Imager chip will be replaced in camcorder to get live view in camera mode for recording. Let me know exact model number of your Sony camcorder written at bottom of camcorder for more info. Thanks.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for
five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback
then eject again five times, these will serve as your
video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning
cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera.
Most camera has built in video head cleaner
installed inside and activates only when you insert,
initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is
still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
