Re: Playback quality problem
A couple of things could be causing the problem.
When recording, your movements with the camera could have been too quick or jerky. Try putting the camera on a flat surface or on the tripod and record for 30 seconds.
If the playback picture is still bad, then it's possible that the video heads are dirty or worn out. Consult your nearest RCA authorized service center for head cleaning or replacement.

I had a problem like this with another mini-DV camera (Canon GL1) and I took care of the problem.My first thought is to use a head cleaner tape (dry head). It sounds like you have a dirty video head. DON'T try to use anything else, don't stick anything into the head or tape area. No liquids like alcohol with a q-tip, din't stick you finger in there (oils) and NO METAL. You don't want to scratch the head, even a q-tip, Kleenex, plastic, wood, cotton, t-shirt will scratch the head (and lenses).
If this doesn't work, you may need to have it cleaned in a shop.
If recordings are only blurry and snowy on playback on camcorder, but are OK on a different camcorder or on computer, then the problem is a dirty magnetic head.
Use a mini-dv head cleaner tape.
If recordings are blurred even on pc or on a different camera, then there is a fault.
Faulty CCD sensor, faulty digital board, problem with internal ribbon connector, and dirty or defective lens assembly can cause this kind of problem.
This sounds like CCD sensor problem ( especially if the picture is "noisy" ). Canon and Sony fixes this particular problem free of charge since the CCD device installed in your camera should last + - 15 years if it is properly manufactured. Contact your agent and find out what their policy is.
Not all tracking is created equal, and this is a classic example of what you want to do in the future. Make sure that the tape you want to play back in the secondary machine has been recorded originally in the "SP" mode. "EP mode sometimes has too much crosstalk to effectively play in other machines without the more closely spaced tracks interferring with each other. Hop this helps...Accordianman
