Question about Panasonic NV-DS29B Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Im not sure what your intermittant problem is But these camcorders and its almost every make that I know of, unless they stopped using them. Im talking about the small surface mounted panasonic capacitors that they have used for ever in camcorders and other smaller devices. They are called Pan. Caps and after a couple of years , they start to leak and make all sorts of complaints and problems, and after a while will even ruin the Printed circuit Boards as the chemicals inside the caps leak out and literally eat up the Printed circuit board traces. In a case like that the printed circuit boards have to be replace. In the past I did alot of the older sony analog and some digital camcorders and I had one camcorder I will never forget as it had 6 differant complaints , from veiwfinder to color to recording ,sound problems ect. I found a total of 58 bad capacitors in that puppy. I have also worked on several that had a really bad smell to them, and from experience you know that Printed circuit board is shot. Any sign of troubles and the camcorder should be taken into the repair shop asap. Also after not using a camcorder for a long period of time is when you will probably have most of your problems. Good Luck

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
