Says camera uses PAL but the readings on OSSC implies NTSC, but is weird because it should not matter if you change between line modes (first image is some off-spec 240p but the other one is on-spec interlaced ntsc). This suggests something is up with the sync. If I read the table correctly, sync is provided via composite video output only. This shouldn’t cause issues normally. So I think you may have a dodgy rgb cable. Check if there is a sync stripper or some kind of resistor on the composite video line (pin 20). When the sync is via 75ohm composite video, the line should just be passthrough with no components on it.

Also can you confirm whether the tape being played back is actually PAL or NTSC?
