Are you sure you DID NOT actually record what your seeing..??
If you use High Speed Recording setting/you will get what appears to be a ROLL..depending on the emitting light of the subject..
You seem to be saying that you can VIEW your Video File on the CamCorder SCREEN..
But its Analog OUT connector places this ROLL onto your TV-set..
The CAMCORDER/shows a perfect video..??
But the TV-set offers a faulty picture..??
This is an old unit that still works fine, with one exception. When I playback a tape the image is perfect in the LCD viewfinder but if I plug in the video out connector and connect the unit to a TV or VCR the picture begins to roll in the Handycam. Take the cable out and everything is fine again. Have tested with different cables and output devices. Always the same result. Since I want to transfer these Video 8 tapes to DVD I need to get this problem fixed but can't find a solution. I know where the vertical adjustment pots are in the Handycam and these are centered. Again, no roll if the video output is not connected.
Would greatly appreciate any advice.
