Audio Hits and Modulation on DV Tapes Being Imported into Avid

This is my first post here but it looks like you guys might be able to help me out, i work at an ad agency/post house in New York and were getting some audio hits and modulation when we import DV Tapes into our editing system. The Weird thing is that their not really on the tape or at least not as noticeable as they become after we import them. If i cycle through a couple of DV Decks then i'm usually able to get it in clean, our primary DV Deck is a DSR-45 that is in pretty good condition and that seems to have the most trouble, we have 2 DSR-11s that seem to not handle it much better, recently the only way to get the footage in clean is to load it off the camera's. We've tried switching Computers, First we experienced the problem loading in through an avid adrenaline, then an avid mojo, now i'm doing it straight through the computer and it still happens when loading off the decks, i'm thinking its a camera issue because our camera's our really old and get used a lot, we have about 4 DVX-100s and there all pretty old, i've been able to narrow it down to one camera that i know we shoot on the most so i'm gonna have it looked at but has anybody ever experienced anything like this before or know what might be the problem?

It might be a head alignment issue? Sometimes tapes will play back best in the camera that shot them.
