In your owners manual on page 52 you will find a list of authorized service centers. Give the one in your area and give them the brand name and model number of your camcorder. Tell them you are having a problem with camcorder not functioning in the zoom or record mode of operation. They will have all the service information and will be able to help you with the repair of your camcorder. You can also call Panasonic customer support and give them the same information and ask them if this is a known problem and if they a solution. They will be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with the problem you are having with the camcorder.

My vcr plays commercially-recorded tapes fine, but tapes recorded on it or another VCR play with the sound distorted. The picture seems fine.

Sounds like its mechanism need some alignment. Guide pole alignment. Contact any service technician. This is technically skilled work.

My Samsung TV work fine. My RcA VHS VCR when I want to record the screen said WEAK or NO SIGNAL

VCRs use Channel three or Four to watch the tape. It is better if you use the video out on the VCR to go IN to the TV video In on a modern TV.
For record, the VCR cannot see Digital TV. You must connect the Digital TV box or satellite box Video Out to the Video In on the VCR.

Panasonic DMR-ES40V VCR won't schedule record: Recently, the VCR will not do scheduled recording anything beyond today. I can schedule a recording and it appears OK (I get red light on panel), but I never...

I found this solution on one of your old notes (but a different machine). I set up a scheduled record for 11:59 PM to 12:01 AM for the current day, then set up the scheduled record for the next day. The VCR recorded both the initial 2 minute session and the later one which I wanted to record.

When I got my Sony BRAVIA KDL-32L4000 last year, I could not get my VCR to work  in Video In-2 on the side of the unit. Got a consistent "no signal" message on the screen. I then got rid of the old...

If you take the cables that are currently connected to video 1 and connect them instead to video 2, select video 2 as the input from the remote and get the no-signal message, there is a problem with either the switching IC (not likely) or the input jacks (more likely). The problem with the input jack may be as simple as a bad solder connection that can be fixed in 5 minutes. Do the test first. If you get no signal, request service. This should be a simple repair.

CST.IN Light

Put a tape in and eject it. It will then work. Just had this problem. CST IN means the VCR thinks it has a tape in. Trust me... Very fixable.
