I'm definitely NOT a video expert. I have a Panasonic Digital video camera, NV-GS11EB. The screen goes blank when I try to playback my existing video tapes, or sometimes showes three or four blank lines across the screen, blocking out half the video playback. There is also no sound.
However, by pressing the record button and recording a new sceen for a second or two, and then switching to playback, this corrects the fault. The video plays back and it is ok. However, if a put in a new tape, it reverts to the lined version.
Any thoughts ???
