SOURCE: panasonic PV-L557D vhs-c camcorder wont stay on

it probably goes into a shutdown mode because of those dreaded pan capacitors!!. These are small surface mounted capacitors that dont just go bad in almost all camcorders but they will leak and be very very corrosive to the Printed curcuit board and eat up the pc traces!! The onlt way to see if this is the problem is to have the unit looked at by a quilifyed camcorder specialist and see if that is the problem? Good luck

I think, yes have to work.
Because the RCA in a PC. is for capture AUDIO and VIDEO.
Of any source.
But you have to be sure they are INPUT.
And the respective program to capture video with. RCA inputs in your PC.

I have on my PC.. Video capture program with a security camera System. That work in the same way.

Just with a different program.

OK I hope this help..

Most likely the power circuitry is this ole girl has bit the dust.
The same thing happened to my PV-42 6 years ago.
You've done very well getting 17 years of service from her.
Time to put her on the memorial shelf.

The power on the Panasonic Palmcorder IQ PV-A206 turns itself off. I've tried plugging directly and with a fully charged battery, no luck.


please make this test and fix it. God bless you

If the video camera doesn't work, make sure the battery is charged (see The Battery Recharger Fix-It Guide) or replace a battery that won't hold a charge. Make sure the AC adapter is connected properly. Clean any dirty contacts on the battery, charger, and AC adapter with a cotton swab dipped in denatured alcohol. Remove corrosion with a clean pencil eraser, then wipe the area with an artist's brush to remove any debris. Find and test the fuse, if any.
If the power goes off soon after starting, recharge a low battery. Also, turn the video camera power off, then turn it back on and eject the tape. If the problem persists, check the fuse
If the battery won't charge, clean the contacts and fully discharge the battery, then recharge it. If the problem persists, replace the battery

If the video camera works intermittently, remove and reseat the to establish good contact. If necessary replace the fuse

It presents an error called DEW Detected and it shuts down


The unit is wet or it is too humid to work properly. Try to move the unit to a dryer location so the moister can evaporate.

No power


Only the repair shop will know why there isn't any power to you camera.

Have you tested the ac adaptor to see if it is still holding power?

If it isn't. Then it needs to be replaced.

This may have something to do with the fact that the camera powers down before the battery is exhausted as the maximum run time is 140 mins which is roughly the time you say it stays on for.

CCD sensor faulty and has to be replaced. A properly manufactured CCD transduced should last +-15 years so you should isist on having it repaired free of charge by Panasonic agent. ( worst case pay for labor but not the faulty component : 1 hour labour with this problem ).

Power Failure


Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.
