Question about Panasonic AG-DVC7 MiniDV Proline Camcorder
I have seen more than one suggestion regarding cleaning internal cable connections to fix known problems. Since I am very handy at such things I would like to do my own repair on my AG-DVC7 camera but cannot locate a service manual online for download. If anyone has experience in the proper disassembly method on this camera I would greatly appreciate some hints on how to proceed. I'd much prefer to know exactly how to open this thing up the right way without having to figure it out on-the-fly!
I am a video engineer (EE). I soaked the flexible cable with 90% isopropyl alcohol applied with an eye dropper where the ribbon cable goes into the reel table / spindles. Also, where they make a right angle to connector points. This has worked for a year so far.

Actually I got it done this evening when I got home. I carefully started pulling screws that appeared to hold the left case side on, and I got lucky and got all the correct ones on the first try. After removing and reseating all of the ribbon cables the camera works perfectly again!
