    I own Sony PMW-EX1 camera and recently have encountered a problem which can be seen in screenshot attached. I have been unable to determine the cause of the problem. It is about the purple line on the middle bottom of the screen.
    Is anyone able to do some diagnostics based on this screenshot?

    My initial reaction is that it's a problem with the camcorder's sensor.

    Is the purple line present in all of your photos/videos? Is it in the same place?

    Yes it does move, but only sometimes and it looks like movement from stabilization.
    I am having doubts because this doesn't look like a digital error, but only analogue, like there's a piece of hair or a thread in front of the sensor or some of the close lenses.
    However, my experience is limited...

    Since you have a very expensive device, I recommend taking it to Sony for servicing. If it is a hair they will be able to remove it without damaging your camcorder. If it's something more serious I'm sure they will be able to fix it (for $, of course).
