Question about Panasonic Video Cameras
I'm trying to find a manual for a Panasonic F15 Video Camera. Unfortunately, Panasonic don't list it online as a download and don't even have any information online for this camera. Can anybdy help??
solved the problem very easy in 5 seconds... by removing all batteries .. then shake the camera very hard (or alternatively hit the bottom hard with your hand -at your own risk-) .. now the memory can't hold that there is an error and with the hitting things get better: got it from: Re: Re: Re: Self Diagnosis C:31:22 Jim - 16th Jan 2005 9:33 When you whack the camera (I don't advise it) you are probably loosening the debris or condensation enough to get the camera going. The reason for the battery removal is to reset the camera so old error codes are wiped and to get them again the problem must recur. If you take the batteries out and put them back in with positive results the movement involved in doing this probably serves as well as whacking it (sometimes just turning it over a few times will work). I have in fact seen with my very eyes, repair people (independent not at Sony) take a camera in, wait until the customer was out the door, take the main battery off, whack the camera VERY HARD and turn it back on. This has worked so many times I am embarrassed to mention it. They then put the camera on the shelf for a couple of days and call the customer back and charge them for a complete (and expensive) cleaning. The camera was usually fixed before they got to the car. I would offer you some simple advice (from experience and observation) that you may take or not at your own risk. Understand that anything you do in an attempt to fix your own camera may result in complete failure and irrepairable damage to your camera, including anything I mention here. Just be forewarned

You need to use firewire cable. USB wont work.
Get a 4 pin firewire cable and connect to the PC.
Switch on the Cam.
Open Windows Movie Maker and import video from device.
4 pin firewire would look like this:

On this camera you need to go into the menu and select USB function and tell it to go into PC mode.
Otherwise the USB is in printer mode and the PC will not recognise it.
I am not sure if you got a manual with your camera so I have included this link for your convenience where you can download it.
The manual is not very clear on this instruction but see page 94 for a reference to what I mean.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
