    I have a Panasonic MX500 MiniDV 3CCD[size 1/6th inch with approximately 730k pixel on each ccd] PAL camcorder. I have been using this camcorder for over a year. Recently it began to malfunction. When I shoot something, various parts of the image get distorted for a second or more with blue or red color lights [they appear in a sort of downward wave pattern and totally block the region of the image where they appear]. When i first noticed this I thought it was a problem with the lcd and decided to play it on my tv and to my shock the red and blue distortions also got recorded. Then i thought maybe it was some problem with the progressive Auto exposure or white balance setting and modified them to see if they go away. Unfortunately they did not. Another peculiar thing i noticed was this that this did not happen all the time. Sometimes for no reason whatsoever the camera worked perfectly fine and then all of a sudden the problem reappeared again.

    Can anyone please tell me why this is happening and whats the solution to it?

    Possibly, one of the CCD's are defective, which can cause similar effect or CCD drive signal(camera cba), being intermittant might also indicate poor connection from CCD to CBA flex
