Panasonic hd80 does not power on

Hello all, I rarely used my Panasonic HD80 Camcorder. But suddenly it stopped turnin on when the power button is pressed. I thought it could be a battery issue and I bought spare battery. But even after externally charged and fitted the battery the camcorder did not turn on. Unfortunately I could not locate the Factory ReSet button Any body have experienced this problem before? Any solution?

SOURCE: Camcorder won't record or playback

Panasonic NV-DS65 Ok, here goes, I had the exact same problem on my Panasonic NV-DS65. I've finally figured it out, I hope it helps on your cameras. Remove the bottom plate from the Camera (8 screws, 5 on the bottom plate, 2 on the side beside the hand grip(you will need to remove the grip), open the LCD screen and locate 1 screw below the ?still p-in-p button?. Then pop off the bottom plate of the camera Look at the ribbon cables carefully and gently push them all snugly into the plugs in case they are loose. The tape transport mechanism may have moved them out of place. Replace the cover and that?s it. Use a small screwdriver (one for repairing glasses is ideal) and do it over a table to prevent losing the screws. Also there are 2 sizes of screws so make sure you know what goes where. Thats it, hope it helps

SOURCE: where is the reset button

I haven't used mine for over 2 years because of the mildew detected warning and not being able to find anyone to fix it for me. I just found this on the internet and am going to try it when my battery charges. Seems this is a common error for these palmcorders... good luck! "When you get the "Dew Detected" sign on the screen, remove the battery, give it a good palm hit on the bottom where the battery sits. Hit it a couple good times, put the battery back in and voila it will work guaranteed! I thought it was dumb at first, tried it and it works, hell it works everytime. The blow dryer, plastic bag trick dont work because its an electrical error, not actual dew."

It is on the Right hand side of the camera, just underneath the finger grip. Next to the Auto|Manual Fucus button... about 2 cm to the right.

Hope that helps

SOURCE: panasonic dv camcorder keep havin

This error indicates a cassette mechanism malfunction.
It happens usually when you don't operate the camecorder for long time leaving the cassette inside and the battery attached.
Open the cassette housing and nock GENTLY with your finger tip
on the cassette cabinet (particularly on the position marked "push") until
the cassette is released.
Push on the right place (marked "push") to close and then close the
cassette housing.
Operate the cassette (play, fast forward/backward).
Repeat the above steps several times until the problem is gone.
Advise: Remove the battery and cassette when leaving the camecorder for long period without being operated, and store the camcorder in a dust/humidity protected place.
Hope this can help.

Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

I have a Optoma HD80 and the bulb has about 450 hours on it. I cleaned the projector, unpluged it for several mins and still turns off after starting. If the bulb has only 450 hours on it, why should I...

You have to check the bulb first. Its not the matter of how many hours you have used it. just check the lamp. may be it burned out. Its only a bulb it can burnout at any time. also check the lamp colling fan is working or not. if it is not working the same problem can occur.
