8mm Camcorder Black and White Vertical Lines in viewfinder
I have a Minolta Master 8-418 8mm camcorder. My parents bought probably 22 years ago and I would say its been sitting in a camera bag for probably the last 10 years. Recently I pulled it out and decided to mess around with. When I put a cassette from the bag inside the camcorder and turned it on all that would show through the viewfinder was black and white lines sometimes vertical and sometimes more like a static screen. I was wondering if someone could point in the direction of what the problem maybe. I was thinking maybe the heads need cleaning or could the cassette itself be the isssue?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
