I've been using a Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital-8 camcorder for 7 years with no problems, however recently I've noticed an annoying problem with the tape playback: when it plays back high motion scenes (like when panning a view or when the object moves fast) it shows some sort of horizontal flickering or pixel displacement. Curiously, this effect doesn't happen when the subject/camera is static or moving slow. I don't know how to describe this effect precisely so I'm posting a few video captures to let you see it by yourself:
I need answers please:
1. Does this issue affect only the playback and not the recording?
2. What is the cause and nature of this problem?
3. And what can I do to fix it? Send it to technical service or just buy a new camera?
I'd love to hear some advice ASAP at least for the first question since I got an event next weekend and wouldn't bother getting new tapes until I find a solution.
Thanks in advance.
