Panasonic PV-D308 Palmcorder - no sound

Recently my Panasonic PV-D308 Palmcorder began having sound issues. I can record and the picture is fine, but no sound on playback. Any thoughts on how to fix it, (myself?) or how much it would cost, where to get fixed, or if it is worth fixing? I would love to give it to a friend to use if I could fix it. But without sound it isn't worth that much.

Thanks a bunch for any help!

It's probably not worth fixing. Camcorders are so cheap these days and it's high time you upgraded to a good miniDV camera or even a hard drive model.

You could try resetting the camera. See if there's a firmware update for it that may address the issue. Go into the menu to see if you accidentally muted it.

But if a repair is in order, rule of thumb is that if you get an estimate that is north of 50% what you paid for it, you're better off taking that money and buying a newer, more updated model.

Panasonic pv-gs15 will not play back recorded video in the mini dv deck. all i see is a blue screen with red text ''picture'' on bottom right corner of the screen


Make sure your tape tab is open. See if this works. Sometimes the tab should be closed to prevent eraser or recording over existing film but sometimes the tape tab has to be open to allow for playback or dubbing?

Your tape has a small latch on it that closes to protect from recording or eraser and opens to allow for playing or dubbing. Slide it open and see what happens.

Typical CCD sensor problem ...replace CCD block. This is normally due to a faulty component being installed so even if your camera is out of warranty try to have it done free of charge.

My panasonic palmcorder is having video problems


First of all, try using a head cleaning cassette. Secondly, it is now 24 years old - I am surprised it is still working at all (or maybe you are having it serviced annually ?)
