Question about Panasonic PV-D308 VHS-C Analog Camcorder

1 Answer

My panasonic palmcorder is having video problems

When using my camcorder for a long time (bought new in 1993) ive had no problems whatsoever but now ive been having a major problem with it. All the components in the camera work and through the viewfinder the picture is fine but whenever i record with it and playback the tape the picture has horizontal static lines in the picture from top to bottom causing major distortion of the picture. Im not sure if something is scratching the tape when recording but Ive tried brand new tapes and the same lines appear throughout the recorded picture. please help if anyone knows how. Thanks Paul

First of all, try using a head cleaning cassette. Secondly, it is now 24 years old - I am surprised it is still working at all (or maybe you are having it serviced annually ?)

SOURCE: Palmcorder playback question

Use the RCA cables that come with the Palmcorder® to connect the Palmcorder® from "A/V out" to "A/V in" on the VCR. Then change the VCR to line mode.

SOURCE: Recording and playback problems

Profession diagnosis was that the drum is out of round and cost of repair prohibitive, so I bought a new Panasonic PV-GS500 with a service contract this time! I had actually dropped the GS-150 when it was fairly new and the fall was cushioned by landing on the battery, so I did get a couple of years of good use from it.

I continue to use it as a still camera -- Amazingly, it takes great stills (better than my GS500). Unfortunately, my husband lost the lens cover (and the lens is kind of scratched now), so I would like to replace these parts if I can do so at a reasonable price. Thanks.

SOURCE: Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape

Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

that error is to do with the lazer lens that reads the disc, you can try a cleaning disc or using a can of comressed air.
it could also be a worn spindle, but that normally makes the mechanism noisy.

It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

MY HUBBY GOT ME A CAMCORDER AND IT SAYS NO DISC WHEN IM TRYING TO RECORD I DONT HAVE THE INSTRUCTIONS TO IT EITHER I JUST BOUGHT NEW CDS FOR IT PLEASE HELP.. IT IS A PANASONIC VDRM50 DVD CAMCORDER


Make sure you are using 3" DVD-R discs. DVD+R won't work. They have to be -R media; also, make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the label side OUT. Either one could cause the camera to incorrectly read discs.

Chewing up mini-dv tapes


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.
