DVX-100A PSD NG error message

Help! My boyfriend, a DP, is on a shoot right now in Boston and his DVX 100A is showing this error message -- PSD NG. I think it's an image stabilization issue. He says the picture is "vibrating." My question -- is there any way he can shoot with this camera right now and still get a good picture? Thanks. lisa

Re: DVX-100A PSD NG error message

I think there is something worn in the lens.
I just give the the camera one or two sharp smacks with the heel of my hand
beneath the front body of the camera (not the lens),
That clears it up.

You can probably turn the stablization off too, but I think you also lose some display info.

PSD Warning Panasonic DVX 102A

I can help you with this.Disassemble the right side which includes the lcd display,so you can see the lens unit.Use a blower to blow air inside and point it to the lens.Better if you can remove the lens unit and blow air on it with caution and then assemble it back the problem disappears.
If problem insists remove ccd block and apply inside a small amount of grease on the metal axis inside ois coil which is used for moving coil mechanism for optical stabiliser purposes.CAUTION THIS ONLY IF NO RESALTS WITH THE ABOVE METHOD.GOOD LUCK!

Showing warning psd ng in dvx102 panasonic video cam

PSD NG means that there is a problem with your electronic image stabilization system.I think Panasonic got stuck with a bad batch of gyros. Take it back if you can, otherwise use lower resolution or hold very still when filming.

Warning message

PSD NG is an error dealing with the OIS [optical image stabilization]. It can be fixed, it is not as terminal an error as many have rumored it to be. The caps could be a cause, but very remotely THE cause. You can have the camera sent in to Pani, and they will fix it, and you will get a bill for $300 - $600.

However the main cause for so many of the dvx100 series to have the psd ng error is loose cables. If you feel sure of your self with a screwdriver, tweezers, & forceps, you can make the repair yourself. In simple terms, all you need to do is reseat the ribbon cables. Follow the steps & photos here:

I did this repair with great success. It was a nerve wracking two hours, but I have not had the error reappear since. I got the camera from someone dirt cheap, [read 1/4 value], because of the psd ng error. I made the repair & not only have a fully operational unit with beautiful pictures, but I also quadrupled the value of it.
