Question about Panasonic NV-GS17 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

LCD screen goes blank on my Panasonic NV-GS17 camcorder

The screen works fine when it is opened a little way but when the screen reaches about 45 degrees the picture disappears. It appears to be the flexible link between the camera body and the screen. Can you get a replacement connection and is it difficult to replace it as a DIY job.Although the camera is 3 years old it has not had a lot of use from new! Can't offer a solution, but I have the exact same problem.

When I open out the screen of my Panasonic NG- GS17 Mini DV digital camcorder, the picture gets all fuzzed and turns to blank white. It's only if I open the screen out more than roughly 2cm, when the...


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

When opening the lcd screen on my nv-gs17 the screen is blank, although the camera works just fine


Has the camera been switched to internal viewfinder mode? Many cameras have this feature (mine does) for people who like the old fashioned method of looking through the little viewfinder rather than using the screen on the back - saves battery too. Look for a button with a symbol that looks like a box with a vertical line on the left and right of it. press it and the screen should come back.
Hope this helps.

the ribbon cable that carries the signal to the screen sounds like it has become damaged
thatcan cause the problem
when it is all the way open it stretches the cable resulting in a gap to form, so when only open part of the way there is still a signal. see if there is anything in the hinge that might be causing the stretching of the cable, as that is almost surely the problem..
