Question about Panasonic NV-GS300B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

When in record mode the viewfinder doesn't work.

Panasonic NV-GS300 - When in record mode the viewfinder doesn't work, only the LCD screen. The viewfinder works fine in playback mode, by closing the LCD screen and extending the viewfinder. Do the same in record mode (standby) and the camera switches itself off. If the camera is started recording with the LCD open, switching to the viewfinder will continue the recording, but nothing is displayed in the viewfinder. Switch to playback mode, and the recording can be viewed through the viewfinder. Very odd.

SOURCE: Playback problem on Panasonic NV-GS15

It is probably a dirty head. One camera i had i had to clean it much more often that i wanted to and certainly before any important shoot.

Here is a tip though. Always use the same make of tape (and code). If you do change your tape (or code) then clean the heads before you put in the different tape. this is all to do with "dry or wet" lubrication used on different tapes. i do not know enough about that to comment, but the tip comes form a very good source.

Some people run the whole tape through on record (with the lens hood on) before they use it. I do not think it will help for this problem, but you can try.

I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.

When opening the lcd screen on my nv-gs17 the screen is blank, although the camera works just fine


Has the camera been switched to internal viewfinder mode? Many cameras have this feature (mine does) for people who like the old fashioned method of looking through the little viewfinder rather than using the screen on the back - saves battery too. Look for a button with a symbol that looks like a box with a vertical line on the left and right of it. press it and the screen should come back.
Hope this helps.

How can I erase tape on a Panasonic NV-GS300


You could get yourself a tape eraser machine. The simplest way is to tape over the existing with the lens cap on and no audio input. OR just tape over it.
Note: Most video people recommend around 3 record cycles on a tape for best performance. The more you record/erase the greater chance of drop outs.

The camera has no image on the LCD or viewfinder when in recording mode It appears as though the shutter is not opening, When I playback a tape the image and sound appear to be working well/ Problem is...


There is two reasons. 1 is lens problem Then the shutter (iris motor) not working this sometimes sticks two shtterplates. If u can remove the iris motor & clean the plates & refix it again it can solve. It is very delicate u must be very careful. If iris motor problem u can find out very easly. When u power off the camera u place the camera's lens area to ur ear u can hear the click sound then lens is ok. if no click sound shutter is not working. 2. mostly ccd deffective or ccd drive circuit problem

No image on lcd for Panasonic nv-gs50 camcoder


It was my question and I have found an answer.The problem was,due to faulty main PCB,which did not supply power to LCD backlight. I was lucky enough to find same faulty model on eBay,sold for spares (around $15 for the lot).I have also purchased a service manual for $10,just to see,how to disassemble a unit.It was pretty easy,not a rocket science.Any new replacement part usually very expensive,not saing about repair in repair shop.Will cost fortune.My advice: try to find similar not working unit on ebay,just figure out what was wrong,as there is no point to get unit with the same fault.The camera I have bought for parts had a mechanical problem,chewing tape.

Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500


Hi, I recently had he same problem, you need to have the unit repaired, it is a small but extremely expensive part that has broken. If my recollection serves me right, it's the colour sensor. There are three that combine the colours to give natural colour. My repairer stated that vibration caused the problems to my camera. Good luck.

No picture


if the index go --:--:-- or 00:00:00 when you press play to view recorded material then you have a SERIOUS problem. That means heavy repair and cost. Buy something new.
