Question about Panasonic NV-DS65 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

My Panasonic NV-DS65A keeps freezing in playback mode 2 seconds after hitting play or fast forward or rewind. I somehow fixed it by swapping tapes and managed to record something new, but now it's doing it again. And now it won't record unless the LCD screen is closed. Is it dead?

    It only records for a couple of seconds as well - even with LCD closed, then shuts down.

    have tried completely recharging battery, and running off mains power, and changing tape, but still does the same thing - won't play or record or forward or reverse for more than 2 seconds.

Set the VCR/OFF/CAMERA/M-CARD
switch to OFF and leave the Camcorder in this condition for about 2 hours.

Then, try cleaning the video head to check if the tapes are playing normally.


Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why does my Panasonic NV-SD200A play for 4 seconds then stops and has no kind of output?


General when the electronics detect a fault all functions will stop to prevent damage. Check inside look for broken plastic parts in the mechanism.

VCR does not play.. It keeps ejecting the tape


Does it eject right when you put a tape in? Or when you press play? Does it fast forward or rewind? if not a belt may need to be replaced or an idler tire is worn.

Problems with recording/rewind/fast forward


You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode


Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.
