Question about Panasonic PV-DV710 Camcorder

2 Answers

Error F01 and F02

My 710 has worked fine for years, but today, I went to record, and before I started, I used VCR mode to make sure I wasn't overwriting a previous recording. I rewound a few seconds and started playback. The tape ran a few seconds just fine, but then the tape stopped and the picture broke up, and finally the LCD displayed "F01" I had to power off and back on to try again, and this time, I had the same experience, but the LCD displayed F02. I've tried AC power, different tapes, battery power. Each time I receive either F01 or F02. The manual doesn't mention either error code, and it's sad because the machine functions fine for those few seconds before this strange behavior.

    same issue as DangermaN's. Did just get a full hour recorded when hooked up to power supply but then put a newly fully charged battery in it and got the F 01 again. Pretty frustrating. I'll probably send it in to Panasonic. Service people here in Denver area will rip you off in a heartbeat even after being scammed by tv stations repeatedly. Can't trust 'em. Crooks.

The error codes

Posted on Apr 09, 2017

Both of these error codes are related to the reels inside of the camcorder. The error codes that you mention stand for No Take Up Reel Rotation (F01) and No Supply Reel Rotation (F02). The take up reel is the one that pulls in the extra slack while the tape is running so that the tape itself does not become loose and choppy. The supply reel is the reel in charge of turning to allow the tape to unwind. What you are experiencing are both common reel rotation errors.

First things first, restore your camcorder to factory settings, take out the battery and leave it out over night, plug it back in the next morning. If that doesn't fix it, try a completely different tape that you've used in the camcorder before to see if there is something wrong with the tape reels (sometimes they are loose) or the tape itself.

If that does not work, your next step is cleaning the camcorder. Use a cleaning tape. You may want to perform two or three cleanings in order to make sure that the camcorder is back to normal. You can also use an electronics dusting brush and manually clean out any visible dirt or dust, sometimes blowing cool air (such as the canned air used to clean computer keyboards) directly into the camera can fix the problem as well.

Unfortunately, if neither of these solutions fixes it, it's time to take it to a repair shop, it may need a new reel mechanism inside of the camcorder.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Panasonic Mini Dv 203D - vcr playback in striped screen

I have had this problem. Dont despair! It s a cleaning issue or possibly slight moisture issue. They want you to clean the tape heads. Stick a cotton cue tip in there; i didnt use any denatured alcohol or anything... like we used to do with audio cassette tapes. And/or With a little bit of warm dry air (sitting in the sunshine perhaps) it should correct itself in a day or so. Happened to me (at wrong times of course) maybe three times or so. But never even ruined any tapes that I am aware of. Take heart, its a great little machine when cared for. Except I actually, alas! finally droped mine and now cant get the door open! . . . I was using the PV GS150 primarily by that time, but am still hoping to get the DV203 running again, still pics were really no good on it, but everything else was. All these years worked like a charm, except the few times it zebraed out on me briefly.

SOURCE: Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape

Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

Video on my Sony VCR (SLV-780HF) goes gray after playing a tape a few seconds. What could be the problem?


The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.

I have the emerson vcr model ev467 and it has hardly been used. Went to record a tv program today and when i went to play back the tape, nothing was on it. All indicators were on, so i thought it was...


do you have a cable box connected. If you do you have to tell the vcr to record on channel 3 or 4 (whichever you have the tv tune to regularly) then put the cable box on the channel you want to record the show on

Magnavox VCR U095 39760450-can not put in 2009 YR to record


I called Magavox and Matt told me they had no information for my very very old vcr. He suggested that I trick the machine and use a date similar to the current calendar. For instance, today is Monday, January 5th. I went back to 2004 and found the same day and date. I programmed my vcr for 30 minutes to test it out and it worked. If you can't beat it, join it. Hope your vcr works too. Happy new year!

VCR/Cable TV Connection


I guess you are using the cable TV feed looped through the VCR to the TV set.

Make sure you did not confuse the in and out loop of the VCR.

In the VCR menu, or on the remote there is usually a button called TV/VCR (Video). Make sure it is in the TV mode to watch the cable. In the VCR (Video) mode, the TV must be on the VCR's designated channel to watch the VCR, and the VCR tuner is used to watch the cable channels.

Dark screen on my video-camera Canon MV700i


I have the same problem, it appears that this camera is one of many cameras that have problems with the CCD (image sensor) have a look at this site for more info www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

I hadn't used mine for about 9 months, when I went to use it the screen was black with a bit of flicker. Canon are still fixing them if you're from the UK have a peep here - https://self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/
