Tip & How-To about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV103 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Recording or playing back

For all of you who have this problem. You can't record or playback anything and your power light is blinking. Just turn it on and off on and off. I did this for about 5 minutes. Just turning off and on and then trying to play or record something then took out the tape and blew with a duster for cleaning your keyboard and that worked. This has happened before and well that worked for me. Hope it helps anyone outthere.

Problem with Playback and Record on camera


The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

can't record or playback


when the red light flashes the camera either has a fault with tape mech or the lens unit. This should be checked by a panasonic technician.
