Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
Lots more information is needed for us to help you as John T. Smith has said.
1. What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
2. From what I have read of your camera, you are shooting AVCHD, if you say .mov, the with a .mov file extension. I believe the audio is Linear PCM Stereo. But, what is your camera setting? I see several choices
1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second (aka 60i)
1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second
1280 x 720 @ 50 or 60 progressive frames per second
640 x 424 @ 30 or 25 progressive frames per second.
3. What are you or the project setting as the project preset based on the properties of your source media.
4. Besides now having the latest version of QuickTime installed on your computer, are you running Premiere Elements as Run As Administrator or from a User Account with Administrative Privileges?
5. If you do not have the correct project preset, that would be the top choice for the colored line over that Timeline content and the need for rendering of that Timeline to get the best possible preview in the Edit Mode monitor. The latter occurs when you did not set it correctly or the program had problems putting the video properties into one of its categories. Then you set the project preset yourself manually before you import the source media. Once we have more details from you, we can help you select the correct project preset and sort through other possible factors contributing to your issues.
The answers are in the details.
We look forward to your follow up.
Ok, I have elements 11.
I have not seen any updates available for the software yet.
I have Windows 8 with a AMD Phenom(tm)
I was able to do video before with the other camera, but not now. I was able to get the videos into premeire using Aunsoft video converter, but then the videos have to immediately be rendered taking quite some time.
It is premiere elements 11. I screen shot and posted my current operating system into a reply to Tom. Right now the video setting are on 1920x1080; 60i. The other options area s you described. The video mode is set at NTSC as opposed to PAL. As for the premiere settings I'm not sure. I am thinking I do not fully understand how to determine this. I'm sorry but very thankful for your help im fixing this.

Go with the conversion to .wmv, but redo it so that you have a fixed frame rate of 59.94 progressive frames per second not the variable one that you show in your screenshot.
I believe that much of your problem with the original is that PCM audio codec sowt in that .mov format. I have identified that in many troubleshooting episodes with several other users here and elsewhere. And, the answer was the conversion to .wmv (Windows Media Video 9 video compression; Windows Media Audio 10 Professional compression. I used Windows Live Movie Maker for the conversion.)
In Premiere Elements 11, set the project preset manually. If NTSC set up
even though you now have a .wmv file. It should work just fine. If you see an orange line over the content just render the Timeline.
How are you planning on exporting this Timeline?
We will be watching for your results.
