I made a video of my grandson's graduation using the mini dv tapes. When playing back to my DVD stand alone recorder, I had very bad pixalation like when getting bad reception on a digital tv. The camcorder has been doing good up to this point.
I'll have to borrow a camcorder from my son to check the tape to make sure it's still good; hope its just the playback.
dumb question: does the camcorder use the same sensors to record and playback? Would cleaning help or do I need to get a new cc. What would be good replacement that wouldn't be too expensive.
