Question about Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I open the view screen it comes on but when it's opened all the way it shuts off. I can turn it all teh way around and flip it into the camcorder body andf it will come back on, as soon as it is all teh way open for regular use, it shuts off.
Sounds like you have a bad connection on the ribbon cable to the view screen. When you turn it 360 degrees that is a different connection. It should be an easy fix for a competent repair tech and should not be that costly, less than $100. Unless you are familiar with miniture electronics it would probably be beyond your capabilities. Two websites which offer free estimates are http://www.camcorderrepair.com or http://www.videotech.com Good luck.
