Question about Panasonic NV-DS60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

It's me again with the Panasonic NV-DS60

I'm the one with the problem about the viewing/filming is super super fast... and the noise from the wheels
first, thanks for your help =]
ok, so now when i try to close the casette box, it also makes very loud noise (like wheel noise) i'm able to close it though.

now, i don't understand which ribbons you're talking about. do you have a picture?

loud clicking - i'm not sure what clicking is, but there are two noises:
1) a very low buzzing noise, that is heard all the time when the camera is ON
2) a loud spinning noise, probably from the wheels spinning very fast

what do you mean "run it from main"?

not wet, nope

well that's all.

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

MY PANASONIC CAM RECORDER STOPPED WORKING BECAUSE


The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

it should be connected with a computer because almost all camcorders have a connection to it by using USB.

My panasonic NV-DS60 camcorder is not working


as said somewhere else on here, take all the screws out of lighter part of the bottom of the camera, you will then see all the flat cables, push them all in and move left to right slighty. put the battery back on and see if it works. if it doesn't just do it again. did this to mine just now and it works fine again.

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.
