Question about Panasonic Video Cameras

1 Answer

Panasonic NV-DS5B Mini-dv camcorder shows F04 error which I believe relates to a tape loading fault. It is no longer possible to eject the tape but I would like to continue using the cam as a CCTV camera. My problem here is that it shuts down after 80 seconds from startup and either needs the eject button or the on/off switch to be used. Is there a solution to this problem or is it a product of the F04 error?

It is probably shutting down because it senses there is no tape movement, to conserve battery power.

SOURCE: how can i change my panasonic nv-gs230 mini dv

Best
1. Copy the video to your computer with WinDV. No "capturing" involved. The video resolution and PAL/NTSC format will be the same as the source.
2. Then convert to whatever format you like.


You could also use something that copy and converts the video directly from the DV, like convert to dvd with Ulead DVD Workshop.
DV is a fixed standard and comes in 50Hz and 60Hz versions.

50Hz ("PAL" 625/50) 720x576, 25fps interlace (aka 576i)
4:2:0 components, 25Mb/s Video Rate
LPCM audio 2ch 16bit 48KHz or 4ch 12bit 32kHz

60Hz ("NTSC" 525/60) 720x480, 29.97fps interlace (aka 480i)
4:1:1 components, 25Mb/s Video Rate
LPCM audio 2ch 16bit 48KHz or 4ch 12bit 32kHz


Meaning, You cannot change the camera. It is either a pal camera or a ntsc camera. Othewise you will have to by a firmware update from the manufacture's website.

SOURCE: i cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette

Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

Panasonic NV-DS65 won't eject a tape


It sounds that what's happened is your idler wheel is slipping or even your main drive belt.
When you loaded the tape it was taken by tape guides around the video drum. When you pressed eject the tape guides returned to their proper places but the tape stayedin a loop around the mechanism because the take up spool had no drive to pull the tape back into the cassette. When you've tried to pull the cassette out of the camera that loop of tape has snagged on part of the mechanism and that's what is stopping the cassette from being removed. I'm afraid the tape would be damaged at that spot so you may as well simply snip it with a pair of long bladed scissors and the cassette will pull straight out.
What is then required is either the drive belt changed or the idler wheel assembly changed. Either way a service center will be required unless yourself or a friend is able to buy the parts (not expensive) and do the work required.

Good luck

Cylinder error (F05) usally caused by poor/oxidised contacts on cylinder drive fpc cable to pcb, sometimes caused by seized cylinder or drive.
The cylinder is the round thing that the tape wraps around that has the heads to record to tape, just in case you didn't know.

Panasonic VCR NV-HD642 - F04 Error


You sound like you have a K Deck Model. If this is the case F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading.
The apparent cause of this is the Load Motor timing.

Panasonic DV mini camcorder error message


Inside is a sensor that detects moisture. If there is dew inside the unit, the tape will adhere to the head and create all kinds of problems. This sensor is there to to prevent problems. That being said, the repair for this could be as simple as ejecting the tape leaving the unit open and letting it dry out. It could also be a bad sensor. In the case of the sensor, the parts cost would be in the $10-$20 range. Add in the local labor rate ($175 here in Mass) and you have the total repair cost. While this is not the easiest repair because of its size, anyone that works on camcorders will find it straightforward.

Exactly the same problem as everyone else. There's bound to be someone who can offer advice on what to do. The camera obviously recognises the fault as F05, but where can you reference the remedy to this F05 code? It's not in the manual as far as I can see
