Question about Panasonic PV-DV702 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic DV-Camcorder tape problems.

Panasonic PV-DV702D When tape loaded I hear a noise as thought the tape is attempting to load. Then the red light blinks and the camera shuts off. I eject the tape and about 3" of tape is hanging out or the cassette. I have tried different tapes with no difference. Frank W

I used to service quite a few older camcorders, many of them had some sort of rubber band pulley mechanism and the band itself would go limp (corroded) and not providing enough torsion to drive the mechanics of the camcorder
(imagine a slipping fan belt).
you'll have a real hard time getting an exact replacement, and at great expense.... i've had success splicing a normal rubber band, simply razor cut the ends to meet and use the tiniest dot of superglue to make a band of your length... an untreated rubber band would maybe last about a year unless you wipe it with a coating of silicone which extends it's useful life by 10 times (i have a diy treated rubber band in an older cassette deck still running strong after 12 years)...

good luck with the fix.

I was having the same problem. here's the solution that worked for me - should do it for you as long as your camera stays on long enough. 1. Take out the tape - mine stayed on longer (without blinking) when the tape was not in. 2. press the menu button (near the viewfinder) 3. Use he wheel on top next to the viewfinderto scroll through the choices 4. Choose "display setup" by pushing the wheel in 5. Choose "C. Rest" by pushing the wheel in 6. Turn camera off 7. Next time you turn camera on you should be able to view tapes and record. hope that helps!

SOURCE: removing dv cassettes manually

open the unit and look for a small motor that ejects the tape through a series of mechanical gears, slides and hinges. Now turn this motor by hand.

SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

I just tried the "Fonzie" fix in my ZR300 and my camera now works - cassette compartment closes all the way now with the tape inserted. It just took one "hit" to fix the prolem. I was surprised. But ericemartin's solution is worth a try.

The solution for this required sending it to Canon factory service. I was very reluctant to do this because I've heard horror stories about Canon service, but I was actually pleasantly surprised. The total cost was only about $65 and the shipping and service turn around time was amazingly fast. I was expecting weeks to go by. If memory serves me right I shipped it and received it back in less than 2 weeks.

This is a known problem with Canon and would be covered under warranty if your time hasn't run out.

The tape loading mechanism on my Panasonic PV-GS9 got stuck and I cannot load a new tape. How do I unstick the mechanism?


Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Error message "push the reset switch"


Pull the battery out to reset it. Get a DV tape cleaner to clean out the tape deck.

That should solve both.

My camcorder is spoilt and I am left with many mini DV tapes which I cannot download to the PC without the camcorder. Is there any solution for this?


since it is in digital format a standered VCR wont read them the hi-8 tapes have a bigger VCR tape you can put the hi-8 tape in and insert that into a VCR but the hi-8 is an analog tape and.mini-DV is digital "DV = Digital Video" so a standard VCR wont read them the only way is to borrow a friends Mini-DV camera and copy all your tapes over. they do make a Mini-DV player but even the cheap ones cost more than a new camcorder would! Sorry to hear about your camcorder I hope this helps

When camcorder is turned on the screen shows red or yellow screen


I have the same problem of picture distortion when recording on my PV-GS200 camcorder. It's due to a faulty CCD block, which you can read about on various websites. I can play back pre-CCD failure tapes without a problem. Panasonic recalled quite a few GS200 camcorders with specific serial numbers in the US and Canada, and replaced the faulty 3-CCD chip free of charge. I just discovered this tonight and intend to ring Panasonic tomorrow, as the camcorder - bought new - lasted only two years before the CCD fault became apparent. Obviously, the camcorder was not of merchantable quality.

Ugh...another problem


First clean the drum, use a soft head cleaning tape, that might not fix it though it seems like one of the posts is off if the cleaning tape doesnt work then it needs a simple alignment.

Tape wont eject, play, or rewind. It tries, but soon the message to push reset comes up. No help. Camera works ok otherwise.


put the camera to your ear , power it up and listen ! if it sounds . . . jerky ? your tape is stuck to the heads ( not easy to get out , cassette may be toast and - time is money ) ; if you hear whirring sounds ? before shuts down your cassette housing may be bent ( will need disassembly etc . but not usually expensive ) because - if it is a loading problem , it will usually eject ;
