Panasonic DVX100B won't even turn on or reject tape after battery

I have DVX100b. I switched the battery out and now, it wont even turn on or reject the tape. I put the camera on the power outlet and that didn't even work.
Its completely dead. Any suggestions? How much does it cost to repair this problem? Should I contact Panasonic and send it to their repair center? Or does anyone have any recommended DVX100b repair places?

SOURCE: How to use a panasonic DVX100B in the dark?

Your best solution is to get a on camera light or a 3 point lighting system but that can get quite expensive. Another solution is making a couple of adjustments on the camera which allow more light into the camera. Please note this will not give you any kind of a night vision type of thing and you really can't "shoot in the dark" but you can shoot in low light, this process will allow more light into the CCD's producing a better image in low light. What you are going to do is: 1st make sure the ND Filter is on the OFF position. Next you are going to want to find the IRIS button it is located to the left of the LCD monitor. Next open the monitor and press the iris button and make sure it is set on manual. After doing this, turn the iris wheel (next to the iris button) all the way down you will see it go from F-(what ever the number is) to OPEN. That will open the iris all the way allowing the most light into the camera possible. If your image is still too dark then find the GAIN switch is is located on the same control panel as the iris button. You will see 3 selectors, L (Low); M(medium); and H (High). First switch it to medium and if it is still too dark, crank it down one more to High (please note that turning up the gain lowers resolution). This is really all you can do in low light with the Panasonic DVX100b. Hope this helped!

SOURCE: No sound when recording

Hi,

Please get your microphone tested, also, you can try testing the recording using external microphone.
It seems that the problem is with microphone contacts or internal loose connections.

Seem to be a minor one, hope it will be resolved with above methods.

Thanks.

SOURCE: How to clean Heads of DVX100B

Hello there! This kind of tape is abrasive and so when it starts to rotate the S-post is not rotating one and the tension gets higher than it use to be with a normal tape.The best solution for this problem is to rotate upper drum slowly by hand carefully and spray towards it a head cleaning spray.Then wait for 15 min.and blow hot air from a hair dryer inside mechanism for 10 seconds ,and by this action no more droplets will stay on the drum surface.Attention when you put the first tape wait for 15 seconds in pause or stop mode and after push REC or PLAY button.

Tape door won't close because tape tray won't go down


If the battery is charged, and the power is on, it may be jammed and in need of cleaning. If that is all normal the motor for the tape door may be damaged or has died. Insure tape position is correct and only push where marked.

HI, I recently purchased a dvx100b. I hook it up to my computer via a firewire cable. For some reason my computer doesn't seem to communicate with the camera.
