70D Video Shooting Issues

I have a 70D, and had let it sit on the shelf for a couple days between gigs.  The next time I picked it up and switched to video mode, the LCD screen shows horizontal discolored lines with a slight yellow hue.  These transparent bars aren't showing up on past videos on the card, and don't appear when taking pictures.  Is this fixable?

Re: 70D Video Shooting Issues

Hi RMeds71!


Thank you for posting.


Do the lines show up on new video recorded when you play it back on both the camera and a computer?  If it only appears on the camera, then the LCD monitor itself may need to be repaired.  If it appears in the actual video only, the issue may be able to be resolved without repair.


Lighting can be tricky at times and you may occasionally see horizontal banding in the video from the refresh of the lighting.  Try adjusting the shutter speed up or down to see if that helps.


 1.  Are you shooting indoors or outdoors?


 2.  What type of lighting are you shooting in? (ie. sunlight, fluorescent, etc.)
