Question about Panasonic AG-HVX200A Mini DV Camcorder

Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape

I have two Panasonic AG-HVX200, purchased from different stores, now neither one will play tapes while in VCR mode. both record perfectly fine, but not able to watch any tapes at all. Recorded tapes play back in mini dv deck & camcorder with no problem. All I see in VCR mode on the 200's: one has some solid blue horizontal lines (thick ones),the other 200 shows a solid blue screen in playback mode. any suggestions or is factory service the answer. both machines have been powered on for 900 hours & have been used for approx 500 hours play/rec time.

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.

Panasonic Ag-DV1000 mini DV deck shuts down after inserting tape


When there's a problem with the drive mechanism of a VCR it will shut down to prevent damage. All operations of a VCR are controlled by a computer chip. This is told what mode the mechanism is in by a Mode Switch. If this is faulty it can cause the machine to play up. Sometimes a spray of Video 40 on the mode switch can restore operation. However it will not correct the problem if the mechanism has any damage on it.

I purchased a camera, model AG-HVX200 from Hong Kong. Unfortunately, all menus on the computer are in Mandarin Chinese. How do I convert the menus to English? Thank you Sallie


From the Setup Menu, go to "Other Functions" (should be the 9th one down) and then go to Language and change the language to English. The online manual for the camera is here: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/pub/Panasonic/Drivers/PBTS/manuals/OM_AG-HVX200.pdf

Good luck.

Did you try cleaning the tape head of the player?

For some reason be sure all the gear or any mechanical inside the player is freely rotating.

Adjust the VCR tracking to get a good picture.

I have a Panasonic AG-HVX200. We use it record our services on Sunday. We recorded 4 times yesterday and when I go to play the video back it's just a blue screen. I have tried several tapes and it does...


try running a dry head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds. if it improves, but still has problems, run it again for another 5 to 10 seconds. There is a possibility that your heads were dirty when you recorded and therefore the footage did not record correctly. Hopefully, that is not the issue and the head cleaning tape will help.....Sony has the best one that we have found and we use it on all different brands of camcorders.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view tape...no 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.

Panasonic AG-DV1000 ejecting tapes


This unit just needs the standard belt job. The rubber parts probably got old sitting around in the back romm of the university.

Could do it yourself if you are the like to take things apart type. Otherwise, a repair shop can do it very affordably.

Vcr tape problem


It sounds like the tracking information is being lost for brief periods of time. Tracking is recorded at the lower edge of the tape, and if the tape is wrinkled or otherwise damaged in this area, playback will go out to lunch. A visual check of the tape would be in order. Have the heads been cleaned in these machines? This would be another area to check.... Also, there could be small differences in the tape path alignments, perhaps the control/audio head alignment is slightly different between the 2 machines.
