    Best thing...start with the easiest potential fix first.



    Give the cable ribbon wiggle a try, you never know...



    It sounds like it could be a terminal fault - but, is there a loud clicking?



    Have you cleaned the heads?



    Is the battery slow charged (on the manufacturers battery & charger)?

    -Can you run it from mains - do all the issues remain?



    Has it got wet, or even damp (left in a cellar or roof-space)?



    Post back your results.



    Cheers

OK, so we're getting closer!

I find that those with problems that manifest themselves on closing the cassette door are related to a loose ribbon connection(s).

Sorry, no pictures, I fixed mine and sold it!

When I say run from mains, I mean there was a cable in the original box that connected from the charger base into the camera, to give it a constant electrical supply; you can remove the battery and run it like this.
This was just to prove that the battery hadn't gone haywire and simply caused a malfunction.

Personally, at a guess, I would definitely open it up and wiggle the ribbon cables, while you're there you should also clean the moisture sensor...just incase.

1. Cleaning the moisture sensor:
Take the base cover off by removing the 4 screws (3 on base - 1 under LCD). There will be two small copper contacts under this cover toward the top/middle. Either just blow on them or if that does not work clean them with alcohol spirit or similar, put the think back together and power up and that should do it - worked for me.

2. Ensuring ribbon cables are seated correctly:
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'll be happy then!

Good Luck

SOURCE: Connecting NV-DS60 to a computer

it should be connected with a computer because almost all camcorders have a connection to it by using USB. First install the CD driver from camed with your camcorder's box to your computer and after that connect it with a USB. it should be recognize the camcorder after you insert it. you can check also your camcorder's manual.

thank you for using fixya

Dew symbol on panasonic NV-DS60


My panasonic camera does the same- from what research I've done online the only method (that REALLY works) is removing the battery pack and hitting the camera (where the battery was at, don't hit it too hard) with the palm of your hand. I didn't believe this until I tried and *poof* it worked back normal.

Me again =]


The riboon cable connections are circled in red, do (wiggle to ensure they are pushed down into the connector as far as possible) the two on the left of the picture first then test, before closing the case back-up. If this fails to fix your problem, repeat wiggling the remainder of the ribbon cables. Test again.
Should this fail to provide the required results, then we can look at the moisture sensor.

Let me know how you get on.

FLASHING ICON WONT RECORD.


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!
