Panasonic NV-VZ10 cassette compartment problem

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?

SOURCE: Sony TRV-19 Camcorder - Black screen in camera mode

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.

SOURCE: loading tapes

I have the same problem. If I remove the battery for a few seconds, then replace the battery and wait about 5 seconds, the tape compartment closes.

You are not alone. This is a known service problem for this series of cameras. Cannon has a service notice on its website. Look here:

VHS cassette accepts and ejects with kir..r...r sound. I have removed the power cord (Power OFF) and cassette was inserted halfway and then plugged the power cord (Power ON). At this time the VCR ejects...


First of I think you have a K-Deck mechanism. If you do a Google search for "Panasonic K-Deck" you should find the free information. If you can't you will need to E-Mail me.
This sounds like a a timing problem, perhaps caused by some damage to the Cassette Holder. The mode switch could be part of the problem too. They are quite tricky to set up to get the timing right, I do know the Cassette has to be inside the machine to set it up. The good news is that parts are easy to get hold of, so if any thing is damaged it can be replaced. Curry's partmaster is a good place for parts.

I have a Panasonic NV-FJ600 VCR which ejects every cassette which is loaded , and the two guide rollers remain at the rear of the machine and do not move forward to engage the tape .


If you mean the guides are on either side of the head drum, and the carriage is in eject position, the mechanism is out of alignment. Re-alignment and re-timing may require a workshop service by a professional Panasonic agent.

The bad news is the likely cost(s) involved if parts are replaced.

The NV-FJ600A VCRs were good models a few years ago, one of the first 'super long play' series Panasonic launched.

They use the Z-mech series of decks. These are not impossible to re-align/re-time, unlike previous mech designs, but depending on the extent of wear/damage, can prove uneconomical for a budget VCR which would now be close to 10 years old.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette


Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!
