Re: cannot film

  Dear carooooo, You are dealing with tape not film. Your problem might be in your tape.   Try running your tape on record the full length. Keep your lens cap on. Color balance and use new tape that's for your Sony.         jameskeyboar.

Keep getting line running across the film after any filming like louvers, quite unwatchable.

Sounds like dirty heads. Use a head cleaning tape recommended by Panasonic. After a few tries if it does not improve it would be best to take the camera for a professional clean including the tape path.

My dsr pd170 lcd view screen is viewing in negative imaging. it seems to be filming fine, but the image quality slowly degrades while filming. Since we work at a camp and film things like talent shows...

first tell me when u close the lcd pannel , then is the view finder working fine , if not then
view finder cable is broken . u cant fix it your self as u need to open the camcorder .you must not be having the proper tools for that.
and regarding the lcd part , if the display is fine for a while ..and then
while using it it goes fade , shows grey colour or lines in it . then its lcd problem ...ur lcd need to be replaced .

there are 2 causes why your camcorder is eating up the tapes; either the tape head is dirty or there is a mechanical fault inside your unit (something might be misaligned that causes the film to be sucked in).

try to clean the tape head of your unit by using a tape head cleaner, it is like the tapes that you use with the unit but instead of a film there is a cloth like material inside that is used to clean the tape heads to avoid the film sticking to it

if the issue still persists then you should contact your manufacturer and set up a repair for the unit

Camera won't record/ play footage.

Video head was dirty / clogged due to old tapes usage so it did not recorded any signal on tape and now it requires cleaning with good quality head cleaning tape to record and playback properly.

Color unbalanced, uneven across the frame

Things to try. I don't promise solutions. Check your Monitor. Reading the description lead me to think of a tube display rather than a chip. Otherwise order a head cleaning tape and give it a rotation.

Playback problems

try to open the cover and clean the video head with a clean piece of paper dampened with a little alcohol. place the paper on the head using your finger and slowly moved the drum. donot move the paper up or down just move the drum slowly. the symptom also indicate that the head had reach its peak point and need to be replace with a new one. good luck!
