Panasonic AG-EZ30 motor noise nothing moving

Hi, I've got a second-hand EZ30 which I knew had recording problems with the heads. I just want to use it as a camera and burn to a dvd. But it came with motor noise that runs constantly no matter what you do, whether there is a tape in it or not, etc. But I can't actually see anything moving in the works when I look inside. Any ideas?

Re: Panasonic AG-EZ30 motor noise nothing moving

Well if it uses a tape mechanism .It will only have 3 motors .LOADING, CAPSTAN and HEADS.If one of these is running without tape ,you should get an error of somekind of your screen .If there is no error from mech then noise is possibly an electrical whine from the LCD panel power supply and or main camera power supply .

I have a Panasonic AG-HVX200. We use it record our services on Sunday. We recorded 4 times yesterday and when I go to play the video back it's just a blue screen. I have tried several tapes and it does...

try running a dry head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds. if it improves, but still has problems, run it again for another 5 to 10 seconds. There is a possibility that your heads were dirty when you recorded and therefore the footage did not record correctly. Hopefully, that is not the issue and the head cleaning tape will help.....Sony has the best one that we have found and we use it on all different brands of camcorders. If you need repair or further assistance contact us

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????

If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

yes. clan it now because particles that come off the magnetic tape or videotape can build up on the record/playback heads, reducing the signal quality.

hope this helps

Panasonic AG-455 Problem

The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.

Most likely the flex cable connection to the video head is dirty. A good repair shop will be able to handle this.

Pretend record issue

I've had this happen with a Panasonic when I went back out into the cold after going into a warm, humid cafe for lunch. The drum had picked up some condensation, but the condensation detector didn't shut down the camera.
