Question about Panasonic Video Cameras
My Panasonic Camcorder NV DS28 does not operate in VCR mode and seems to feed the tape from the cassette storage spool but the tension spool doesn't take up any slack. Consequently I end up with tape flowing out of the cassette..... I have an idea this could be due to some drive belt having broken but I need a Service Manual to be able to fix it.... Any ideas ???..... Al
It is more than likely a belt. Probably a square type belt. They typically have a life span of a decade or so but when they start to go they go quick. Letting them sit around unused for periods will actually make them more prone to die. A service manual is a best bet - try google searching or eBay - but you can track down the parts via Sears Parts direct. There are several parts sourced on line but I have great luck with Sears. Enter the make and model and see what it lists. Common things like belts for vcr, cassette decks, vid cameras, were used in many different things over time so they actually have stuff in stock still. Also check YouTube for how-to videos, as most of these repairs are common and similar process for different machines.

I hate to say this but I think your camcorder is trying to tell you something...
Like whe a Dog goes to his bowl and barks and you look down and see no food in it...
If it say's service then bring it for service.
