No its not with the samsung alone. Both of your cameras suffer from defective CCD. I think if the cameras were manufactured between 2002-04 then they must be having manufacturing defect. Contact your local Samsung and ask about the world wide problem of defective CCD that were replaced by almost all the camera manufacturers FREE of cost.

MiniDV cameras have two video heads on the rotating drum, which read and write the picture in broad horizontal bands. When one head is not working, normally because it is clogged by dust/dirt/tape residue, you see broad bands of noise across the image occupying exactly half the total image area.......

Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD
