Question about Panasonic NV-GS3B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

VCR function not working on Panasonic NV-GS3 DV camera.

All of the sudden after 5 years -the VCR function stopped working. None of the functions: Play, rewind or fwd are working, neither directly on the camera nor when I try to use the same functions on the remote control that goes with the camera. The recording function is still fine, but I can´t see what I just filmed or save it on the computer. Please help me ! :-)

    Hello Eeeeeeeeekz.
    Thanks for a fast reply. I don`t know too much about electronics/computers. How do I update the software for the DV camera? I do not posess installation CD for the camera anymore (don´t know where it is) Will I need it? I have a Mac, not a PC, if it makes a difference. Lets say I don`t need to update the software, what else could I try?

    I came across this http://macapper.com/2007/06/29/macfreewa...


    It looks legit so i would try it out. After installing it i would run a anit virus program immediatly to make sure its clean (just making sure your computer stays healthy). I hope this will help it should.

No Sound


The camcorder may be in what may be called "narration mode." This function mutes the playback audio so you can narrate with you own voice when playing tapes back. Check for a function like this in the playback sound menu.
