Question about Panasonic NV-MX500B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic NV-MX 500B stored for a year now won't work

The camera was working fine, didn't use it for 12 months and when I came to use it again it would not work. I sent it to a Panasonic repair center and they told me it would cost £750 to repair. The camera was little used and has had no problems before. I cannot understand it needing such an expensive repair, can you advise me please?

    Thanks for your answer. I'll have a look at it and see if the semiconductor fuse has broken. Cheaper than replacing the MPCB.

    Do you know what the product code for the semiconductor is? I can't find it on the service manual schematic.

    Do you know the part number for the fuse and where I can get hold of one?

If you didn't used it for long time as 1year you must have to replace a new battery with clened battery connectors.1st you should' ve try to operated it with the charger.If it doesn't work still,high current drain during the first attempt caussed broken semiconductor fuse in side the main P.C.B.Some repairmen used to replace M.P.C.B. without repairing it.
that's may be cost a lot for you.

    Got the very same problem. Is anywhere in the world a repairman who can fix this broken semiconductor fuse without replacing the M.P.C.B? I goth 3 cameras "dead" that way, Changing the M.P.C.B costs several hundreds euros only for the spare part!

Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.


Hello
Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.


Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

F02 error in Panasonic vedio camera


Hello.

F02 error code means tape slack. If you have a separate deck try winding the tape all the way to the end and then rewind it back to get the tension up. Or if you are able to do it in the camcorder then do it this way.
