When I point the camera at a light source (the sun or a bright fluoresent light) a blue vertical line starts to appear from the light. The width of the line is equal to the width of the light sourse. This is an intermittent problem, as long as the camera is not pointed directly at a bright light it's OK. When the problems starts even a not so bright light sourse gives out the blue lines.
Please help me find a solution for this. I even replaced the CCD unit.

Remember any of your Electronics gadgets not using for a long period, you mus detach the battery, put it separately. how is the picture in the EVF, in this case I think a cleaning and servicing will cure the problem, open the LCD side, clean all the connectors with CRC liquid,
You should go into the menu, camera settings and set the evf to on. EVF stands for electronic view finder. This can be set to be on when the lcd is open or closed. CAreful, if the evf is set to on and you point the viewfinder towards the sun, it will burn white marks into the viewfinder and ruin it.
When you shot your white balance (WB) did you shoot it under sane lighting conditions that you where filming, And if you did how many diffretn light sources where present when you filmed. Blue cast useually means (WB) set to hot (beaning light source is hotter in kalvins) for what your shooting. Example shooting indoor gym that uses arclights are very bright then shooting around normal incandesent lights very dim. Alot of the time there are multible light soures in the envioment your shooting in sun coming in through window lamps on table floursent lights overhead ect..
Know if you want to change (WB) after you shot your footage there are programs avalible to do this. But there usely exspensive.
Hope this helpes you. Good Luck! Need more help or info please comment back. Please rate.
Mine was similar - with vertical black lines on playback. Visit Bristolcameras.co.uk, enter your make and model and ask for a head cleaner. They sent me one within 4 days and that was over the Christmas period. Reasonably priced too (£3.50 + p&p) and the whole head cleaner can be used up to twice once the tape has gone from beginning to end.
There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. Cystal-shaped spots, black spots, and bright spots of light (red, green, or blue) can appear on the LCD monitor for a variety of reasons. These spots are not being recorded on your tape. But if these are distracting your videotaping, consider taking a slightly different shooting angle and the spots should go away.
