Question about Panasonic AG-DVX100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

I am in the middle of a shoot and my Panasonic AG DVX100A will not record. I was going through menus for setup, and the screen is stuck on "USER SW" and shows the 3 user switch settings. Menu button doesn't work, and neither does record. I have tried resetting it numerous times.

    I have removed the battery and re-powered the camera numerous times, still stuck on the menu. Also tried pressing the reset button with the battery installed and not installed. Still no change.

    Messed with it a little more, got the menu button to work, seems the joystick is not working, and may be my problem.

    User switch? Have you checked all your switch settings? Can they be changed to anything else. Try pressing all at once...

    If all else fails it's time for 'percussion maintenance' That means a good wrap on the hand a couple times. I'm serious, what have you got to loose?

My Panasonic DVX100A is not recognizing the tape what could be the problem?


most likely problem is dirty video heads. try a Panasonic cleaning tape; if that doesn't work, hand cleaning by a technician should work.

Dvx100a showing black screens on lcd screen and view finder


You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

We are one of the Panasonic ASC and so far we had no problem with DVX100P parts. Although that model has been discontinued parts are still available.
Most of the DVX100A parts are common for DVX100P

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice


Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

DVX100A panasonic camera tape mechanism not working


You can open the cassette cover and spray inside the upper left side of mechanism(closer to the back) with contact cleaner spray,because there is a rec inhibit switch.If it's not damaged and just dirty you solve your problem ,but if is damaged it needs replacement.

Panasonic DVX100a Unexpected Shutdown


It sounds like an automatic battery saver function. Regarding the need to return to the menu to select your settings, you can program these into the user file settings, so all you have to do if it powers down again is select your user file. The manual can be found at: http://service.us.panasonic.com/operman/findmanual.aspx?model=AGDVX100 BTW, aside from the need to save your battery, it is harmful to both your videotape and video head to keep the tape and head engaged onger than two minutes.
