Question about Panasonic AG-HVX200A Mini DV Camcorder

1 Answer

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.

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.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera


You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

Dont know how to use the harddrive with camera


Make sure you turn your other settings in the menu while in camera mode to ext, both or chain. Ext. mode, means pushing record on the camera makes the hard drive record, but not to tape, Both means that both tape and hard drive will record, Chain means when you run out of recording onto tape, the hard drive will automatically start recording as the tape runs out.

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.

Pretend record issue


I've had this happen with a Panasonic when I went back out into the cold after going into a warm, humid cafe for lunch. The drum had picked up some condensation, but the condensation detector didn't shut down the camera.
