Re: erasure prevention

Sounds like a CCD sensor problem ( no image in capture mode but ok in playback ). Replace CCD block and will work fine.

You will require a firewire cable.
Usually a 4 pin to 6 pin cable. 4 pin to camera 6 pin to computer, assuming you PC has a fireiwre socket.
PC computer have Movie Maker as part of the OS.
Connect with the above cable and you should be good to go.

Panasonic NV-DS65 won't eject a tape

It sounds that what's happened is your idler wheel is slipping or even your main drive belt.
When you loaded the tape it was taken by tape guides around the video drum. When you pressed eject the tape guides returned to their proper places but the tape stayedin a loop around the mechanism because the take up spool had no drive to pull the tape back into the cassette. When you've tried to pull the cassette out of the camera that loop of tape has snagged on part of the mechanism and that's what is stopping the cassette from being removed. I'm afraid the tape would be damaged at that spot so you may as well simply snip it with a pair of long bladed scissors and the cassette will pull straight out.
What is then required is either the drive belt changed or the idler wheel assembly changed. Either way a service center will be required unless yourself or a friend is able to buy the parts (not expensive) and do the work required.

Good luck

Panasonic NV-DS65 500x it gives power red flicker

This is not the problem with that battery. That battery is using for the clock & date memmory. From your question not clear the problem. First you check the flickering condinously or after two or three or some another numbers flickering then giving some intervel then it doing again.
Any way I can give u a solution. Open the black cover remove the flex cable which is connected in between mechanisum and main P.C.B. & remove another flex cable which is connected capston motor & main P.C.B (which is big flex cable just closed to tripod fixing hole. Then clean with sprit & cotton bud. After five minute refixed it again. Mostely it should work. Try this if the problem is not solved tell the details of the flikering of the red light

Camera turns off

the red symbol is the erasure prevention slider on the tape. check it's not on or push the slider on and off prevention. this should fix the red symbol, you might have to do it a couple of times before it works. not sure what F14 is can't find it in the manual. try the solution here. if it still turns off after a few seconds i have another way to fix the power.

Camcorder won't record or playback

I have the same problem It seems it is a tape drive problem I just wanted to say Lots of owners are having the same problem more over the the 3V battery shows empty on power on while it is not empty taking the tape out allows you to play with menu and view the image * you can also connect to the pc via Firewire connection and record in the PC hard disk or even change the line input from the menu to AV in and use the Camera as a Analouge to DV Vedio converter This goes to show that the Camera is woking fine , untill it is asked to move the tape * The only way to stop the camera from turning off is 1) take out the tape 2) in play back , press play the pause (some poeple claim to have solved the problem that way - has not worked for me )
