Good Morning Guru’s,
I am trying to sort out problems I am having when I review “ALL” of my pre-recorded DV tapes. The images have vertical banding (pixelation in bands)
There is a degree of weirdness about this case that I am hoping more brilliant minds than mine can solve. Firstly some of the facts;
15 X pre recorded tapes of various ages (1 - 13 years) all with the same problem and level of banding when reviewing. When I overtape on one of the old tapes the new footage was fine. Gets to the old footage and back comes the banding.
1 x tape that was still in the camera has no problem with review or record.
I have tried head cleaning but doesn’t fix the problem.
I am hoping this is a problem with the camera and not my tapes with treasured family memories. Searching the net reveals some problems when cameras heads get out of alignment.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
