Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV102 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Won't work with tape installed

Seems like the camer functions normally unless I pop a DV tape in it, then the Power LED blinks and it shuts off! Also, after downloading and installing all the necessary software on my pc, it won't recognize the camera. If I try to open Drive E it says INSERT DISC!

I had this same problem. At my wedding, and didn't get to record it because of it. When I got home I put a new tape in and worked fine. It was just a bad tape.

Red light blinking won't accept tape


If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

Computer won't turn on


try removing the battery and see if it runs on mains power, if so you need a new battery. another possibility is that the system has overheated, although you would normally expect it to start up once it has cooled down, unless it has done irrepairable damage!

Error Message Reconect Power even if power is connected


It sounds like the tape door is out of alignment, causing stress on the tape and the inside mechanical system.  Requires a visit to the service shop.

Panasonic DV-Camcorder tape problems.


i used to service quite a few older camcorders, many of them had some sort of rubber band pulley mechanism and the band itself would go limp (corroded) and not providing enough torsion to drive the mechanics of the camcorder
(imagine a slipping fan belt).
you'll have a real hard time getting an exact replacement, and at great expense.... i've had success splicing a normal rubber band, simply razor cut the ends to meet and use the tiniest dot of superglue to make a band of your length... an untreated rubber band would maybe last about a year unless you wipe it with a coating of silicone which extends it's useful life by 10 times (i have a diy treated rubber band in an older cassette deck still running strong after 12 years)...

good luck with the fix.

Probably you had not used your camera for a long time, keep it running for sometime, this may solve the problem.
