Sony Handycam DCR TRV38

Does anyone know how to fix the problem of a foggy/gray screen when trying to record? Playback of existing tape still works fine -- full color -- but I can't record anything new! Had this problem with the first Sony Handycam DCR TRV38 I bought (my current cam replaced it after the same problem occurred less than one week out of the box). After I had replaced the cam, someone said I could fix this problem by cleaning the heads. Did that, but it hasn't fixed the problem.

Any suggestions?

Sadly, no, I cannot return it. I have had it for over a year and no longer have the receipt. Sure hope someone knows a fix ... this is going to be a very expensive paperweight otherwise.
