Panasonic DVX100a Unexpected Shutdown

Noticing that sometimes my 100 will power down, always when I am paused, never when I am recording. But when this happens, I have to go back into the menu to select 24p settings, etc... Any ideas?

Re: Panasonic DVX100a Unexpected Shutdown

It sounds like an automatic battery saver function. Regarding the need to return to the menu to select your settings, you can program these into the user file settings, so all you have to do if it powers down again is select your user file. The manual can be found at: BTW, aside from the need to save your battery, it is harmful to both your videotape and video head to keep the tape and head engaged onger than two minutes.

My Panasonic DVX100A is not recognizing the tape what could be the problem?

most likely problem is dirty video heads. try a Panasonic cleaning tape; if that doesn't work, hand cleaning by a technician should work.

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice

Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

Image distortion/mosaic pattern (sometimes) at start of tape

This is a proper maintenance job. I know exactly what you are talking about and your comment about pausing and then it works sometimes confirms in my mind at least, that this is an issue with the mechanism for turning over. It happens through general use, but can be prevented by conservative use of the pause button when playing back. In my experience, the pause button is used rather than switching off, when logging....dont know if this is true on your end but I hope it helps in some way.
