Question about Video Cameras
I recently tried to use my Panasonic NV-VZ10 for the first time in many years. When I turn it on - in Camera mode - it's fine for maybe 3 seconds, and then the picture disappears. The battery indicator and such still remain on the screen, but after another couple of seconds the camera seems to turn off. If there's no tape in it, it works just fine. I noticed that the cassette compartment is quite loose and wondered if some connection isn't quite being made, which is causing the camera to malfunction. I seem to have a vague memory of trying to force the compartment closed when a tape wasn't fitting in - perhaps I bent something. Does anyone have any hot tips for fixing it?

Fixed it, at least temporarily I had the side off my trv250 examining it, especially the CCD connection. I had read the post about soldering a capacitor to pins 1 and 3 (from the left) on the bottom row. I didn't have the specific capacitor on hand, but I started touching some of the small ones I did have to those pins. I found that after I touched a 100uF, 10V cap to pins 1 and 3 the picture suddenly came back to life and stayed that way after removing the cap. I have no idea how long this will last, and I've set up the cam on a tripod in the livingroom with the LCD display facing me so I can monitor it. If you, like me, figure you have nothing else to lose, you might want to give this a try. Note: my camera was suffering from the green smeary horizontal lines problem, and wasn't completely black. I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not.
