Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Built-in microphone does seem to work

I purchased a used Panasonic PV-GS15 camcorder. Since I didn't have a battery charger when I purchased it, I could not test it right away. After I got the charger, I tried using the camcorder. The video was fine on playback, but there was no sound. Could this be the built-in microphone and is that an expensive repair? Do you think that an external microphone would work as an alternative?

The only way to really tell if the buit in mic. is bad is to replace the mic or plug another one in the external mic. jack. Also use the input (red and white) RCA jacks and input a signal from a stereo or TV into it and record. If still no sound then its probably Bad capacitors in the sound processor Printed Circuit board. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but mostly all of older camcorders suffer from this breakdown fault. Good luck

Panasonic pv-gs15 will not play back recorded video in the mini dv deck. all i see is a blue screen with red text ''picture'' on bottom right corner of the screen


Make sure your tape tab is open. See if this works. Sometimes the tab should be closed to prevent eraser or recording over existing film but sometimes the tape tab has to be open to allow for playback or dubbing?

Your tape has a small latch on it that closes to protect from recording or eraser and opens to allow for playing or dubbing. Slide it open and see what happens.

Panasonic PV-GS15 Camcorder problems


someone already posted this somewhat barbaric solution, and it worked for me: gently hit the bottom of the video camera (where'd you put the tripod). not really a gentle hit...more of palm slap....not hard but not soft. moderately, I guess is how hard I slapped it.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Software


What u need at the minimum is an addon card for downloading(refer to the manual for the exact No. it is something like IEEE1395 or so) Then connect the cam to this thro' the cable.
