Question about Panasonic AG-DV2000 Mini DV VCR

1 Answer

Panasonic dv2000 I am using one of your dv tape decks to import video into Final Cut Pro using the firewire400 port, and for some reason the deck keeps dropping frames.  I don't know if just cleaning the unit would help or not.  Any ideas as to the problem?

Cleaning is a good first step. If cleaning the deck doesn't work, it may need a tape path alignment.

Relace mainboard in mini dv tape deck

what symptom does it have? describe what it is/isn't doing; most of the problems I've seen with AG-DV2000s are related to either defective capacitors on the mechanism drive board or dried grease on the reel table positioning arms. I've never had to replace a main board in a 2000.

Audio Problem with Firewire

The input select switch on the front of the AJ-D230H needs to be in the "OPTION" position, not "LINE". That may help if all the other settings are correct. You will also have to make sure that you have selected the right codecs for the deck that you are using in the software. I am speaking as a Final Cut Pro user so only offer this as a suggestion as these are the things that work from out of Final Cut.

Good luck. It can be very frustrating, but awesome when it all comes together and works right!!!
