There is no playback picture, or the playback picture is noisy or contains streaks. During a still or slow motion picture, the picture may contain some vertical jitter when using a TV which has an automatic vertical hold control. If the top of your playback picture waves back and forth excessively.

To solve this problem, slowly turn the horizontal hold control on your TV to correct the wavy picture. If your TV does not have the horizontal hold control or adjusting the control does not help, contact your local TV service center.
