Question about Video Cameras

2 Answers

My wife has plugged the wrong charger into our old camcorder (Panasonic NV-DS15). It's no longer working and she said she could smell something burning. Is this an expensive fix? Or is there a way to remove the mini dv tape stuck inside without power? I would prefer to have it working as I haven't converted the tapes to a digital format yet. unless it's cheaper to buy something that's able to take mini dv tapes and plug into a computer. Either way I need the tape out. Thanks.

You can buy the proper charger but since the camcorder smelled of burning, I'd get a complete used unit with all the attachments.
Unless you can get a FREE ESTIMATE and decide what to do, I'd just forget it. There are many inexpensive camcorders for sale that will play back your Mini DV tapes.

Have you tried, on the off chance, the correct charger?

Charging Panasonic NV-DS38


Yes that is correct.

You have to use a separate charger as the "DC in" socket is on the camera body underneath the battery.

Panasonic NV DA 1 driver


Dear Dewi

This camcorder will connect to a laptop with the standard firewire cable so long as you have a movie editing progam. I find pinnacle to work well as you can controll the buttons on the camcorder.

all the best

Connect to laptop using vista ultimate and firewire


I checked on Panasonics USA support website and neither of these two model numbers appear.

Here is the link to the support page:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Drivers-and-Downloads/list-Digital+Camcorders

There is a phone number to Panasonic support on this page as well as the international link if they were purchased outside the US.

Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500


Hi, I recently had he same problem, you need to have the unit repaired, it is a small but extremely expensive part that has broken. If my recollection serves me right, it's the colour sensor. There are three that combine the colours to give natural colour. My repairer stated that vibration caused the problems to my camera. Good luck.
