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.:sad:
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
