Question about Panasonic AG-455 Camcorder
I have a Panasonic AG-455 camera. The problem is that whenever I attempt to record I hear a loud noise. Additionally, if I hit record/play I hear the noise and I can turn the camera upside down and the noise sound changes. Whenever I start recording there is no noise for like 10 seconds. Then it starts making the noise. WHenever it makes the noise the video is bouncy. Then if I connect the S-video up to the TV and press play, it makes the same noise and the video comes out "messed up."
I have already attempted to clean the heads several times and that did not fix the problem. Does anyone have a idea?? I really like this camera!!
The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.
