Question about Panasonic NV-DS29B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Flashing light I have exactly the same problem and have had it looked at by a repairer and could not find anything wrong with it thought it might be dust. It did work once or twice after but the problem has come back the light flashing again. The camera is not very old. Has anyone got any info on this as I recon it is a common fault or they are made to only last a couple of years.

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

If you are looking to solve the problem of<b> PS3</b> flashing red, you've come to the right place because that is exactly what is learned in this article. The <b>PS3</b> does not have many problems as the Xbox 360 has, but like any other device, which has few.

My NDS just shuts down randomly in the midst of playing, usually with the green light giving a few blinks. No flashing screens though, and it's definitely charged. What could be wrong?

Is it still under warranty? Call Nintendo and have them repair it for you. I had the same exact issue, Nintendo solved my problem in less than a week.

Wont display anything, green light on power button keeps flashing


The flashing light on the Dell E173 series indicates a failure in the power supply board. This series has several versions on the board so you will need to know the exact model, it is listed on the label at the bottom of the back cover. The versions are E173FPc, E173FPb and E173FPf. We have repair instructions posted on our web site at: that cover each version on the unit. The repairs will require replacing a few pars that will need to be soldered.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

My Maxent TV (MX-42HPM20) of 3 years just stopped displaying picture. Even menu doesn't come up. Power light is on, but screen is black. Any thoughts?

If the television is still getting power, and even more diagnostically important is if you're still getting sound from the device, you've got a back light issue. All LCD TV's work on the premise that your image is displayed using a set of white tube back lights, think similarly to the ones you would have overhead in your kitchen at home. The issue is that if these lights ever burn out, you won't be able to see anything on your TV, like the situation you're in now. You have to get these replaced by a technician. The issue you're going to run into is that Maxent is no longer in business, you'll have to find a service depot in your area that can assist you. The repair is fairly common and shouldn't run you more than about $300-400 at the absolute most.

I just replaced the lamp on my sony wega 42WE655 tv and the lamp replacement indicator light onthe front no longer indicates that it is bad, but the standby light keeps flashing red. when i try to turn it...

If you just replaced the lamp then there's something wrong in the power circuit or you have a bad lamp. If you can I would take the back cover off and look at the board where the power cord connects and lok around it for swollen capacitors. Let me know if you find anything.

I'm trying to print but it doesn't just the button next to the X button is flashing which looks like a flame what's wrong with it?

That indicator just means there is some problem. It's impossible to tell which exact problem it is without the help of an HP representative.

if the problem faults within the first 1 minute the first check the connections on the main module behind the control panel,as you you look at the control panel there is a pink connection to the left,if this looks like it has got hot then theres yopur problem(you will find that the joint on the board has come loose from the soldered joint,module requires replacing.
if this connection looks ok then the heater is open curcuit and will require replacing.
