Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
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
