Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV102 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Palmcorder is having problems with mini-dv tapes. It either hangs up when a tape is inserted (ie. the power indicator blinks on and off and the palmcorder is non-responsive in either camera or video mode)... or when the tape is inserted the palmcorder chews up the tape... ive had it for 3 years and used it sparingly (special occassions maybe 2-3 times a year)... any ideas? can i open it up and tweak something... any help would be appreciated... thanks.
These type of problems usually result from damage to the tape transport mechanism, Unfortunately they are impossible to fully diagnose without a physical examination of the mechanism.
There is not a magic tweak for this i'm afraid.
Wish i could be more help
