Question about Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

My tape player in my video camera isn't working anymore...

So, I have a Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder and I've had it for about 2 1/2 years now. It worked fine until about a year ago it started acting up. It wouldn't play back tapes correctly and it would randomly shut off or say "press the reset button" and beep at me. It was really annoying, until I found out I had to get a head cleaner tape to fix the play back. The play back worked fine, but it still was giving me trouble with staying on in the first place. Now, my tapes won't play back at tried to eat a tape in fact and the head cleaner doesn't work. It says it's playing a tape, but no image or sound appears. Only the blank blue screen with how many minutes are remaining on the tape. How do I fix this? Is it worth it to fix, or do I have to buy a new camera now?

if you want to transfer the video to the computer, I use a firewire cable that I had to buy separately, make sure ur computer has a firewire port. The usb cable is only good for downloading pictures.

SOURCE: Turn the sound off for recording on PV-GS320 DV camcorder

Hi, I think the PVGS320 has an external mic input. Plug in a 3.5 mini dummy jack and that should turn off it internal microphone.
