Panasonic NVGS4 camcorder problem

The problem with my camcorder is when I'm recording, the image flickers and after a minute or 2 it will stop and it will appear in the lcd "push reset botton to go back to operation". And when I tried to rewind the tape, I could hear something ticking inside. Is there any solution for this? Thanks! Stormcatcher

Re: Panasonic NVGS4 camcorder problem

Did you try with different tapes? light turr sound is always there in Rew/FF as the tape rotatets very fast. If the head motor stops while spinning, the error will be detected and the unit needs resetting. also if the head is sticky, tape gets stuck on head and unit will stop. Try to clean the head with head cleaner and check.

Your Camcorder supports video recording using the Tape only. However, you can record images (only) using the SD Card.

Check your manual for the max supported SD card size. Most likely it will either support a minimum of 2-4 gb :)

So yes you can get larger cards for your PV GS 50D
