Question about Panasonic PV-DV51 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camera is recording a green dot. I have tried to clean the head but my head cleaner may be too old. It is almost like there is a cluster of pixels that have decided to be all green adn it is growing. I am assuming it is the sensor. If so is it worth fixing or should I just buy a new one? Thanks for your help.

This is not a problem with the tape but the camera. The only way to fix it seems to be to find an empty spot on the tape or a spot you don’t care if you record over. Then record for a second then go to video mode and you can play the tape without the blue lines. Or buy something else to play the tapes which should be fine either way. Darn camera !

I had the same problem but without the needing cleaning message on my Pana PvGs12, weird as it sounded, I stopped it but left it on and gave it a whack on my palm and then tired playing it again and it fixed it. But I have heard it may also need professional head repair and that it may be out of alignment too? Try switching from doing it in the camera mode and or in the playback mode. I'd also try the reset button.

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.

You can open the cassette cover and spray inside the upper left side of mechanism(closer to the back) with contact cleaner spray,because there is a rec inhibit switch.If it's not damaged and just dirty you solve your problem ,but if is damaged it needs replacement.

If you have Head Cleaning Cassette play it at 10 seconds or use new Cassette for 10 minutes play or record. Otherwise Video Head damage
