You can purchase a head cleaning tape.These work vert well. You just put the cassette into your camera like you would a regular tape cassette, then play it for ten sconds only. Don 't rewind. You can keep using it in ten second bursts uintil the problem is solved. If the problem is not solved in this way, your camera probably needs a new video head. This worked for my Sony Handycam and I can't see why it wouldn't work for a Panasonic.

Panasonic GS35


i suggest you insert a head cleaning casette to see if this removes the lines.the lines occur when one of the heads is dirty or not operating. if this does not solve the fault then the head might need changing.

Pv-L750 camcorder


I have a Panasonic camcorder PV-L750D-K

You will need to purchase Pinnacle Video Transfer.

http://www.pinnaclesys.com/images/redesign/PVT/comp1.html?KeepThis=true&TB_iframe=true&height=400&width=650

It's expensive, but it's the most convenient way to transfer analog video (via a USB flash stick or external hard drive) to view and edit on a PC.

I have used this device with my Panasonic PV-L750D-K Palmcorder (camcorder) with success.

A few things to keep in mind:

a.) The Pinnacle Video Transfer converts the the video into MPEG 4 format - so you will need the Apple QuickTime viewer to view the videos on your PC.

b.) You will need to purchase a USB flash stick, a min of 4GB (I use an 8 GB flash stick), unless you have one already.

c.) Your flash stick should be formatted to FAT 32

d.) You will need the Audio/Video cable that came with your Panasonic camcoder (the supplied A/V cables that come with the Pinnacle Video Transfer are incompatible with the Panasonic camcorder).

e.) You will need to update the Pinnacle Video Transfer with the latest firmware update (available from the Pinnacle Support Site) before you hook everything up.

The rest is a no brainer. Just follow the instructions in the booklet, or view the tutorial videos on the pinnacle web site for more info.

Have fun.

Lost Cable


These are generally a standard mini to Firewire cable, available at many retailers, take your camera with you and look at the available cables. Panasonic has them for sale as well.
