100 % Cure - Change the internal battery, you can find that below AV out jack, pull it out and replace it with a new one. I have seen this happening twice to my camcorder. It seems you, just like me seldom use it.

Mini DV tapes have a little switch thing on them that write protects the tape if it is set in one position, or allows the tape to be written to if set in the other position.

Tip

Recording or playing back


for all of you who have this problem. You can't record or playback anything and your power light is blinking. Just turn it on and off on and off. I did this for about 5 minutes. Just turning off and on and then trying to play or record something then took out the tape and blew with a duster for cleaning your keyboard and that worked. This has happened before and well that worked for me. Hope it helps anyone outthere.

My camcorder is spoilt and I am left with many mini DV tapes which I cannot download to the PC without the camcorder. Is there any solution for this?


since it is in digital format a standered VCR wont read them the hi-8 tapes have a bigger VCR tape you can put the hi-8 tape in and insert that into a VCR but the hi-8 is an analog tape and.mini-DV is digital "DV = Digital Video" so a standard VCR wont read them the only way is to borrow a friends Mini-DV camera and copy all your tapes over. they do make a Mini-DV player but even the cheap ones cost more than a new camcorder would! Sorry to hear about your camcorder I hope this helps

Lost Cable


These are generally a standard mini to Firewire cable, available at many retailers, take your camera with you and look at the available cables. Panasonic has them for sale as well.

Can't record or playback


when the red light flashes the camera either has a fault with tape mech or the lens unit. This should be checked by a panasonic technician.

This is actually a problem with the ribbon cable. When the tape is put in and the tape door is pushed shut it jars the internal ribbon cable. Years ago I found this tip online & it fixed it!

"Ok, here goes, I had the exact same problem on my pos Panasonic pv-dv203d. After many times of taking it apart and many frustrating calls to Panasonic, I've finally figured it out, I hope it helps on your cameras.

Remove the bottom plate from the Camera (four screws, plus one near the LCD screen).

Pop off the bottom plate of the camera

Look at the ribbon cables carefully, and make sure they are all snug in the plugs. The tape transport mechanism may move them out of place."

Every now and then our will start to act up & hubby unscrews the bottom of the camcorder (Panasonic PV-DV203D), gently maks sure the ribbon cables are in place, replaces the bottom plate & it's worked for us every time. i hope this helps!
