Question about Panasonic PV-GS150 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

The camera switches modes on its own

I've had the GS150 for a couple years, and lately it's started switching modes without any input from me. It does this when it's on the Playback mode. It will "slip" (without the dial turning at all) into either the still camera or record modes.

Has anyone else had this happen? Is there a DIY fix, or will I need to take it in for repair?

    Mine switches the opposite all of a sudden - it will record for 15 to 18 seconds and then switch to playback mode.

    I also have the same problem; while in view mode after few seconds (varying) the camera change mode by itself to either- or photo mode.

    I had the idea that the mode switch wheel could be the cause - but I don't know . Anyone know how to solve this ???

Sony dsc-H1 won't switch off of movie mode


When you switch the camera from mode to mode, does it make the click noise to signify that the camera recognized that it changed modes? If not it could be that the switch itself has become unlogged from the switch. I know I had a older camera had this happen before. Try pushing down hard on the toggle wheel and seeing if it will snap back into place. Otherwise the switch inside the camera itself is probably broken, and if this is the case cheapest thing you can do is have Sony do warranty work on the camera. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SYCustomerCare?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1 Click repair and service under Technical Support. This will get the process started on the warranty work.

Goes from record mode to standby automatically


Wow my friend do you need Ghost Busters? er no this is mostly a case of the main switch being on lock, or the main IC going down on the panel in the cameras brain area, check the locks first, if it is the chip you will need to call your Sony repair man (He will love you) with summer coming he will be able to go on longer holiday, because that wont be a cheap mend sadly.
Number for help then is 01256 828828, now what you will do for cash for your holiday I simply do not know.
Take care, hope it gets sorted out okay?

Camera does not switch on with loaded battery


Internal humidity detector shut it down. How long since you tried it? Put it in a warm, dry place and leave it for a day and then try it.

Can't get dvd player to work on this tv!!!


im guessing that you cant go to av mode because you dont have a remote, am I right? if thats the case you need to go to walmart and buy an RF converter. You can plug you dvd into the converter, then run a coax cable from the converter to your tv coax inout aka anteanna input, then depending on your converter switch your tv to either channel 3 or 4 and presto. it will hook up just like vcr's and onld nintendos use to. You can pick up an RF converter cheap at walmart or check e-bay, couple bucks and your watching dvds.

Panasonic PV-GS150 wont eject


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
