Question about Panasonic PV-GS150 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Will not turn on?

I have the same problem, my PV-GS 150 will not turn on? I plugged it into the wall thinking it was just a dead battery but it still won't turn on. It just makes a small clicking sound from within the camera. When I open the Mini DV casset holder the casset doesn't even pop out. Any Ideas? What did you do to fix this problem? Thanks for the help JEFF

Re: Will not turn on?

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

I have a PV-IQ404 Panasonic Palmcorder that the power pack has been lost from. Can this be replaced?

By power pack do you mean the actual battery or the charger unit that plugs into the wall to charge or power your Palmcorder? Either way, bot are available on Ebay as universal units and you should make sure the charger or battery pack is for or a 6 volt capacity. Many chargers for these Palmcorders are labeled as VHS-C / 8MM, that should work with your camera. Universal battery packs are made reversable, meaning that you can flip the battery to accomodate several other camcorder models. I've replaced my batteries and charger for my Panasonic Palmcorder from Ebay.

Recording and playback problems

Profession diagnosis was that the drum is out of round and cost of repair prohibitive, so I bought a new Panasonic PV-GS500 with a service contract this time! I had actually dropped the GS-150 when it was fairly new and the fall was cushioned by landing on the battery, so I did get a couple of years of good use from it.

I continue to use it as a still camera -- Amazingly, it takes great stills (better than my GS500). Unfortunately, my husband lost the lens cover (and the lens is kind of scratched now), so I would like to replace these parts if I can do so at a reasonable price. Thanks.
