Question about Cameras
I have a PV-GS50D camcorder and it is frozen in the open position with a tape in and partially down. The power just quit and no battery seems to make it better. I need to somehow get power to it so I can open the tape cartridge and determine if it is totally fried or what. Even a brand new, fully charged battery does not provide power to the unit. Please advise.
Hi There, Have you tried plugging in the d/c power cable from your charger? The power supply board inside the camera has 4 fuses, 1 is for the battery power, 1 is for the d/c plug in power, 1 is for both and the 4th is for lens functions. The camera may NOT be completly fried. A good service shop should be able to get your tape out without damaging it and give you an estimate for repair at the same time.
Let me know, mr cicmo.
