Playback of Sony tapes as described on the Pana MX350 delivers thick and blocky stripe pattern ...
Miraculous self-healing through dismantling and subsequent assembly;)
Let's see how long it lasts, but the GS180 is certainly not much longer to wait:)
How far dare you to the "dismantling"? Do you have to have any info about Panasonic Cams? I've mentioned here many times "5-bar" problem when playing with my MX350 :-(
