Question about Panasonic NV-GS50 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Panasonic NV-GS50 that has been sitting in a cupboard for a few years. I got itout to get some video of the tapes. I did this no problem. Now I go to use the vide and it will record audio but no video is showing up on either the tape, the LCD viewfinder or the eye viewer.
The LCD screen works in playback and I am getting all the usual symbols etc on the LCd screen when i try to record, just no video.
I cant find any settings that fix this, and cant remember if it was working when I first pulled it out of the cupboard or not.
Yes, the lens cover was off when I tried lol
Any help would be appreciated.
The CCD chip: the decvice that converts the pictures captured by the lens into electronic form is damaged. this could have happened if you stored the camera with the lens cap off and the lens accidentally pointed to a bright light for some time.
Get a repairman to replace the CCD chip.

Perhaps the iris is fully down - check the F stop number - should be high not low to let more light in. Might help.

You will need a firewire card in your PC and firewire cable to connect your camera to the PC. you will also need a software like Windows movie maker which can help you to transfer videos from your camera to the PC.

try to clean the video head using a blank new tape and fast forward it 5 times if needed...dont use a video cassette cleaner it will ruin your video head...
