Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV102 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Palmcorder will not focus

The unit all of a sudden won't focus and the digital zoom won't work. The on screen display will show it going from 1X to 10X zoom but the blurry shot never changes. My daughter thought she may have pushed a sequence of buttons to cause it but I can't figure out what that would be.

JVC Digital Camera focus

Did it work before? If so then it sounds like the focus motor/screw jack has failed and needs replacing. With some JVCs you can replace the whole lens system and a new one will re-calibrate itself, but I'd have to check on this model.

I have a 10" frame. The picture that I take with my digital camera is cropped by the frame. It seems to crop about an inch off the edges. How can I fix this. I can alter the picture if necessary.

if it's during a slide show, then there's a slide show option "screen fit or fill".  If you are set to fill then it will cut off edges, change the setting to screen fit.

or if it is cutting off all 4 sides when displaying a single photo, you may have the zoom turned on.  Tap actions / zoom and set the zoom back to 1x.

Camara not focusing/ zoom not working

Its an error code and shows problem of Lens mechanism.
Lens focus / zoom motor is stuck that's why camera gives out of focus image.
You need to replace Lens Assembly and it would cost you more then camera worth.
