Question about Panasonic Proline AG-DVC7 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Panasonic DVC 7

I have 4 DVC 7s that I use in my classroom. Recently I have had 2 of them display the folowing problem: They seem to record just fine but on play back the LCD shows the camera setting and controls on the screen and appears to resond to rewind and fast forward. But, the LCD remains blue. It doesn't appear to be reading the tape. I have tried different tapes and tapes that I am certain have good content luck still blue. I have also tried the reset button on the camera. Again no luck. Any ideas will be appreciated. Rick

Clean the heads with a Panasonic MiniDV cleaning tape. I've seen many cameras come through our shop with this problem - a quick cleaning made a world of difference.

Is there a way to reset the Poloroid DVC-00725F, I seem to have lost my menus, just a black box appears with no text ?

Well, it didn't fix my camera, but when I plug it in to the USB port, and hold down Enter, Play, Record, and the Pic/Shutter top button simultaneously for 5 seconds or so when the camera boots, it goes into test mode. At which time it goes through tests, but doesn't really fix anything. Good luck to you.
It should say: pcba test program 2 times d50h-polaroid-g0911n
then prompt you to hit the power button

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

DVC recorder

The physical tapes are the same size, but the encoding on the tapes are different. Unless the panasonic recorder can play DVcam, you're out of luck.

typically, repair for the DVC10 (replacement of the cam/vcr and record start/stop switches) is around $125.00.

Zooming problem

I have the same problem. I have no fix in rec mode but if it happens during playback; press menu and select the zoom options. You don't have to pick any but just keep the menu displayed on the screen. I do this while recording the tape to my DVD recorder and it solves the locked zoom problem. The menu display does not get recorded.
This zoom problem is a big pain. We should start a class action suit against Canon. It started within a year of ownership with mine. I bought a Panasonic recently and haven't looked back.
Panasonic doesn't have the slick Canon marketing/packaging but it is a much better machine.
