Question about Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I record, everything seems normal. I switch to playback mode, rewind, and play and it mostly stays blue, but once showed a couple of squares of color. When I played a tape recorded a while ago, it took a few moments, then showed more squares of color and after a few more moments, it played normally. I don't know if it is recording or not. I tried pressing the reset button, removing the battery, resetting with the battery out. Nothing seems to make any difference. The camcorder has been gently handled and is about a year old.
You have one of two problems my freind. One could be the CCD sensor or related circuits have a problem in it and most likly a bad capacitor or a CCD imager, or the shutter is bad and sticking. Unfortanatly you really cannot tell untill the unit is taken apart and bench yested. I found a few really reliable folks that will give you a free estamate as I have sent a few peeps to them in the past and with great results. Good Luck http://www.videoonerepair.com/ Or http://www.videotech.com/ http://www.camcorderrepair.com/
