I recently had the same problem. All I did was buy a Head Cleaner, followed the instructions, and now my camera works fine. It only cost me A$12 and I bought it from a shop specialising in digital video cameras. I hope this helps.

I HAVE FIVE GREY LINES WHEN I RECORD AND PLAYBACK YOU CAN SEE THE PICTURE BETWEEN GREY LINES


Sounds like the video heads require cleaning.
It may be best to take the camera to a Service Centre.

Camcorder video head required cleaning because gray lines come in playback when video head got clogged/ dirty.

Sony dcr-trv120 playback


the problem is with the video head. either it's dirty or broken. if cleaning tape is not solving the problem then i fear you have to get the head changed. an expensive repair.

4-5 Grey Lines appearing in the Playback Mode when playing tape


I have the same problem happening and can't find a straight answer. Some posts are leading me to believe that it may be dirty heads, and that the camera needs cleaning.

Playback won't work


needs to be cleaned and possibly tension adjustments. most cases this will fit it but the video heads could need replacing.

Not recording clear.


Hello, please try to playback these new recordings on some other Camcorder. If you experience good picture on the borrowed Camcorder it means that the video head is (partly) damaged. In order to cure this the video head is to be replaced. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references. Best regards, Arpi
