Question about Panasonic PV-GS150 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic PV GS 150 Won't turn on.

I let a friend borrow it, he gave it back and now it won't turn on, I plugged it into the wall thinking it was just a dead battery but it still won't turn on. It just makes a small clicking sound from within the camera. When I open the Mini DV casset holder the casset doesn't even pop out. Any Ideas?

Hello. We have a Flip HD video camera. After

I have this exact same problem on my Flip all the time. The only solution I've found is that you have to unlock it, open up the battery pack on the front, take it out and put it back in. Then it turns on. I've had this problem with two different Flip HDs, so I think there's a bug in the camera -- it only happens after I've plugged it into the adapter on the computer and then taking it off.

Hello ? !!

umm you either fried your battery, the power supply blew, or theres a fuse in it that blew for protection. first thing i would try is take the battery out and try plugging it directly into the wall, if it turns back on then your battery is shot,if not the power supply within the camcorder blew which could be a small transister or diode and would have to be replaced,or could be a small fuse that went pop within the camera. here is the manual if you don't already have it. it may tell you if there is a fuse. either open it up and check the camcorder power supply where you plug in and see if theres any black around anything and if there is then thats what needs to be replaced.or if you dont think you can do that then take it in to the repair shop for servicing.

Canon ZR40 would not turn on

The battery is probably so dead it is using all the power from the wall supply.  Remove the battery, and run only from the wall supply.

Will not turn on?

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Sounds like the cleaning job wasn't good enough to get all the dirt. Try a Panasonic cleaning tape; if that doesn't work, find a local repair shop to do a good hand cleaning.
