Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500

I'm currently trying to get 2 Panasonic NV-MX500 camcorders to work but they're both showing everything in blue (both on the LCD and through the viewfinder) when recording. When this footage is played back it's also blue, but older footage recorded before this problem is still in perfect colour. I've tried changing all the colour settings but to no avail. I can't find anything on this in the user manuals. Have I got the settings wrong or does something need to be repaired? Thanks Tim

Re: Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500

It's the 3 CCD sensors. VERY expensive repair. Should you be interested, I have for sale my nv-x500: had the same problems and had ALL 3 ccd sensors replaced with ne ones and recalibrated by Panasonic. Never used since, as the camera fuse on the main PCB got broken soon after. The 3 ccds are brand NEW, I sell the camera as for parts for 100 euros with 2 batteries like new, battery charger and all original accessories and manuals, Cheers

Re: Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500

Hi, I recently had he same problem, you need to have the unit repaired, it is a small but extremely expensive part that has broken. If my recollection serves me right, it's the colour sensor. There are three that combine the colours to give natural colour. My repairer stated that vibration caused the problems to my camera. Good luck.

Why can't I find a driver for my NV-GS40B driver

sometimes if you let the win8 os do the search for you it finds the driver
switch the camera off and plug the lead into the camera and pc
switch on the camera and it should show a notice of plug and ply installed
then it will say searching for driver
if it finds one it will automatically install it through the windows wizard --just follow the prompts

I have a panasonic handycam. It shows an error which says Check Record Tab on startup. Because of this error i cannot use the handycam. Please suggest any solutions


The record tab is usually on the tape itself and is usually red in colour.
If you slide the tab to the open position and then reinsert the tape it should allow you to record.
