Vertical banding appears when turned on for recording

Answers :

\015\012If the vertical bands appear only when you playback on computer, and you can see the recording on camera/camcorder, then the computer does not have right software installed.\015\012
\015\012If this is a camcorder, and bands appear on display, but you can playback recording on different camcorder or computer, then the flat ribbon cable to LCD display must be replaced.\015\012
\015\012If recordings cannot be played on camera or computer, and all you get are vertical color bands, then the digital controller board is faulty.\015\012
\015\012In the first case download software on computer (Video Codecs) in the last two situations you will need to have the camera repaired by a technician. Call the number listed on the owners manual to get a quote on repair.\015\012
