Question about Panasonic AG-456 Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic ag456 I just bought a new panasonic ag456 I connected the power adapter but there seems to be no power. The light for the power adapter isnt turning on. As a matter of fact I bought two of these cameras and they seem to be doing the same thing. Neither one of them has a battery connected to them could this be causing this problem.

Re: panasonic ag456

These camera should operate with only the adapter, but they are notorious for having broken solder connections on the rear board where the audio and power connectors are. disassemble the camera and re-solder the connectors on the board; you may need to add a little epoxy glue to help hold the audio connectors.

Double Red Flashing Light

I just posted another solution on the main link. Basically hook up the unit to the ac adapter, reset the menu to get rid of the blinking red light, and then put a new tape in on camera mode. The unit was able to record again and also work in camera mode.

Panasonic hdc-sd1

i came across the same problem and even though you seem to be powering the cam from the usb lead and battery, you also need to plug the ac adapter into the camcorder otherwise it won't let you go any further, asuming i'ts not plugged in already, the question isn't that clear...

meanwhile my hdc sd1 is not even turning on, so think yourself lucky

Help with my panasonic

lee, i had the same problem i think. does the camera turn itself off after 10 seconds or so?? if so you have to check the ribbons on the bottom of camera. there are 5 screws on bottom of camera 2 on the side 1 on the bottom right of the lcd sreen. after all the screws are off check all the connection to the camera, ribbons might have come out a tiny little bit just push them back in make sure you do all of them. doing this fixed my problem hope it helps you. jeff

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.
