The camcorder has a problem in that the heads are probably not locked in frequency. This is not an uncommon problem with older units. There are some capacitors in the circuit that controls the head speed that are defective. This allows drift in the speed of turning which will result in an uneven signal. This is not a trivial repair but the parts cost is minimal (less than $10). Look for a repair shop that works on camcorders and get an estimate. When I get these units the total cost usually runs around $150 for parts and labor. Realize that even with experience, this is a 3-4 hour job.

First thing to try is to run a mini-dv cleaning tape through the sytem, which you should be doing on a regular basis as recommended in the instructions of the cleaning tape. If the problem persists you will need to have it professionally cleaned/repaired depending on what ends up being wrong with it.
