Question about Panasonic PV-GS65 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Wet camera My camera has been dropped down into water. Now I can not bring the tape out of the cam. LCD monitor, eyepiece viewer is fine but it can not go into record mode. I think the first step to fix the problem should be to the tape. How can I get the tape back?

Make sure it is completely dry. I have dried cameras by placing them under a gooseneck desk lamp (careful, not too close or you will melt the plastic). Open as many things on the camera as possible, and remove the battery. You shouldn't power it on until it is really dry. You might need to "bake" it under the lamp for a few days. If you see condensation on the lens, it isn't dry. Other than that, I'm not sure what else to do.

My camera got wet and refues to come on

I'm sorry to bring you bad news, but that problem is probably terminal. In general with electronics, the components and wiring are waterproof, and if you get them to be totally dry before applying power, they'll be OK. The problem with cameras is that they're permanently powered by the battery (even if it's apparently off). While the electronics are wet, and powered, the printed tracks and components are eroded by electrolytic action.

Your only hope is to remove the battery immediately, dry the camera out (use a vacuum cleaner that won't mind a few drops of water to hurry the process along) and try turning it on. Sorry again for the bad news.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Blue screen

the video ribbon is probably not secure in its connector and as you open the door it is pulled from the simple housing it connects to these cameras are absolutely terrible the lcd screens will always fail because of a design defect in the ribbon and its routing and fastening.Inside the lcd screen to secure it they use electrical tape as a fastener so ridiculous.
