Video Monitor Interference Lines - Get Rid Of?....

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Frank McMahon, Oct 21, 2004.

  1. I have a SVHS monitor hooked up to my camcorder which is in turn hooked up
    to my firewire port, I use the monitor to edit DV.

    I have faint scrolling lines of interference moving corner to corner which
    are quite annoying...is it electric? Do I need to get something on the AC
    plug? Granted I have lots of wires and computer stuff but all that is
    running over to the monitor is a heavy duty monster cable.

    Any suggestions on eliminating this? Thanks!

    Are the lines there when the camcorder isn't connected?

    Are the lines there when the cable is connected to the monitor but not the
    camcorder?

    Are the lines there when camcorder is connected but not turned on?

    Are the lines there when you are using a different cable? (Don't know how much
    you paid for the "Monster" cable, but you got SCREWED.)

    SVHS Monitor? Are the lines there when you wiggle the video input connector
    and all the controls?

    Are the lines there of changed when the monitor is connected to a different
    source?

    Are the lines there when the camcorder is connected to a different monitor?

    Are the lines there in (SVHS) monitor when it is connected to a different
    video source (another camcorder/VCR/tuner)?

    Answer all these and you'll probably solve the problem yourself.

    Check your grounding of the monitor in relation to the rest of the system.
    TRy lifting it.
