I have a vx2000 mini dv camcorder that does this everytime I try to playback my tapes on it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3c1_r-rk-U but when I record on a fresh new tape and immediately play back the footage on a different camera for example I use my buddies GL2 it works perfect and doesnt do the same as what my camera does how can I fix that and what can I use to fix it? thank you!

Looks like the example video here, except your errors are concentrated on the left side of the screen instead of the right.
As with analog dropout, DV dropout in source signals results from a loss of information recorded or read from the tape by the VTR playback heads. It might be due to tape wrinkling, creasing or other tape damage, manufacturing defects, environmental dirt, or transport shock during recording. Dropout appears as pixels of missing data in the image, which may be substituted with video information from nearby frames during playback. Severe and consistent dropout may indicate clogged heads in a playback machine or significant damage/deterioration to the source media.
i'd try a head cleaning tape.--
