Stopping the Panasonic Proline AG-DVC7 for powering off
I would like to use the DVC7 as a studio camera at church. The only problem is that, to save the battery, if powers down after 5 mins. Even if it's using AC power, it still powers off. Is there a way to stop it from powering off when it is connected to AC Power?

I take the cover off the door, using the eraser as the end of a pencil - lightly press on the recording head (drum). Put a tape in and watch to see if the tape now wraps around the head and stays in position to record.
Bad power switch... very, very common with the DVC7 and DVC15. Get the power switch/recorder button assembly replaced and hopefully you won't have the problem again until the new one decides to act up.
I'm not a technician, but we just sent our AG-DVC7 to a repair shop. For $45.00 they told me the CCD Unit and the CCD board were bad. they wanted $250.00 for parts alone. The camera is 8 yrs. old and I don't see a $400-500 repair as a good investment, as the new unit is only $1000.00
The DVC7 has a 43mm filter thread on its lens. Depending on your Bower's thread size, you may need a step-up or step-down adapter ring to fit it to the DVC.
After checking if you have your sizes correct, you need to remove the DVC7's lens hood. After that, it's just a matter of screwing the wide angle lens to the DVC's lens.
Hope this helps!
most likely cause of this problem is loose or dirty cable connections to the video head or mechanism in the camera. get a tech to disassemble the cam and check the flex cables connecting the main board to the mechanism. same fix is good for AG-DVC10 and AG-DVC15.
