Vixia HF M31 - Horizontal white lines in video



My Canon Vixia HF M31 has recently begun showing horizontal white lines in the video. Once I realized it was doing this, I can also see these lines in the viewfinder even when its not recording. I have attached a very short video with an example. I am wondering if the Hard Drive is needing to be reformatted or something... Any thoughts on how to fix this?


Thank you for your help!!!

Hello Pauken, 

We are sorry that this issue persists.  We would need to evaluate the equipment hands on in order to determine what the underlying issue is.  We recommend setting up the VIXIA HF M31 for service though the Canon web site here
