Camcorder just quit - no power

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.

Sony CCD TR31 - tape holder will not lower into camcorder


Does the tape have blocking tabs that prevent recording? May be telling you that you can't use that particular tape.

If not take it in for professional repair. I think Sony is in Mississauga.

How to transfer the video file from my mini dv pv-gs50d to my computer


Hi!

Are you using Windows Vista or XP? Have you downloaded the correct driver and installed it on your computer?

Also, the most easiest way on how you can copy the video file from your camcorder is by taking out the SD card and then plug it in your SD card reader. It should be detected as a mass storage device.
