Sorry for my first post being a problem but i am in big trouble
On the first day of our holiday in france i dropped the beloveds MV790 video camera onto a nice hard tiled floor. After being screamed at a lot i decided that the camera was ok as it still seemed to record ok, and as you were recording the view on the screen looked fine.
But.... when playing back the tape on the camera and pc, thick horizontal grey lines appear. I have searched on the forum and it seems that this refers to dirty "heads". I dont think it is the case with mine as it has only been used a couple of times and the problem only occurred when i dropped it. I tried an old tape that i know is fine and the lines appear on that as well. I assume that i have knackered (insert appropriate tech term) one of the heads. They both seem loose when i looked at them, is this right ?
I phoned a Cannon approved repairer and they estimated around £100 to fix it without telling me what the fault was.
I was just wondering if anyone could suggest a cheaper option, or advice.
Anyway, thanks for listening to the ramblings of a total numpty (not the exact words the beloved used) and thanks for any info
