I have a Panasonic AG-DVC7 mini Dv digital camcorder. It was dropped and the microphone was damaged, ribbon connector terminal on main board is not repairable. Can you give estimate on how much to repair,...

Parts costs make it difficult to give you an idea of how much the repair costs will be. The camera is definately repairable and, depending on the parts needed, can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Tape is locked inside and cannot eject it. We took to a local camera shop and they said it would cost $200-$250 to help us get it out. I don't need to fix it if that is the case. I just need a player that...

The reason your tape wont come out the camera is because you may have not cleaned the record heads of late, they get tacky, grab your delecate tapes and twined them round the capstan and heads, then yes your little tape is well and truly stuck, trapped like a rat in a cage.
I have managed to get tapes out within a few minutes with a small screw driver and small pin, so I cannot see why they told you that stupid amount of money.

Broken lens

Had a broken lens as well. As you're probably aware it's not really a lens but a protector like a watch crystal. So I went to a jeweler who said, "Oh I don't know, it's not a watch. Bla bla bla." I said I'm not going to hold you accountable. He said fine. He fixed it easily. $20.

Re-attach power source

Okay I fixed my camcorder. I did a ggogle search and came across this solution which worked...I strongly suggest you do this. I whacked it two times on each side with the palm of my hand. IT WORKS NOW! I guess sony is aware of this malfunction and this is probably how they fix it....The error code is gone the tape plays. And it didn't cost me a penny.... Good luck and let me know if it worked for anybody else......

you never know what it will cost till you take it apart and most peeps do send them to the manufacturer so cut out the middle man thats gonna add on a shipping and handling fee + who knows what else. Call canon at 1 800 828-4040 good Luck.
