Have Sony dcr hc32 camcorder. Dropped it with cage open. It did close, worked for a bit then quit. No power whatsoever. I want to get the tape out. Any secrets to this. Called sony and went through...

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My jvc gz-mg330 dont work and on the srean its said communicating error

I presume the error is in between cam CPU and the Data Battery. Check your battery contact and camera's battery terminals and clean especially the pin marked "c". This contact is the link between BATTERY and CAMERA CPU so that your cam knows how much power left in your battery. Sometimes a DC JACK failure or defective battery shows the same warning. Good Luck!

No power

this happened to me once and I just charged the unit and eventually after the charge the camera opened.

Power outage

Yes there are fuses. Unfortunately, by exposing the camcorder to salt water, it is probably a write off. I personally would not guarantee any repairs to a unit exposed to saltwater (or any water for that matter). Salt water is EXTREMELY corrosive and can cause problems long after the exposure happened.

Re-attach the power source flashing

I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.

Panasonic ag456

these camera should operate with only the adapter, but they are notorious for having broken solder connections on the rear board where the audio and power connectors are. disassemble the camera and re-solder the connectors on the board; you may need to add a little epoxy glue to help hold the audio connectors.

Panasonic NV-GS250 won't turn on

no spare screws, ever! look for a small pinhole through which to push a pin to reset the device with batteries in.

Power failure and I need to remove tape

If you can do the repairs yourself there are two ways to fix the problem. Dismental the camera. Try to locate the power board. have a keen look at the components near the battery connector or the power connector. there you will be able to locate 3 to 4 safety fuses. check the continuty. if found open replace it and the problem can be solved. AND the other way is to locate the motor for tape deck loading mechanism. Remove the flex ribbion connector of the motor from the pcb, then try giving 3volt supply from an external device to the motor in both the direction. in one direction it will move the deck outward, but be carefull when the cassette is being ejected a little portion of the tape may get damaged.
