Re: picture

Don't worry you dont have to buy a new camera :) When you press the menu button there should be an options menu. look around for the "effects" options or something along those lines. There is a black and white mode on the camera, my guess is that it turned on somehow. All you gotta do is turn it off.

I hope that this helps, feel free to ask more questions. I have a jvc video camera just like this one, so if need be i can just look at mine!

Describe your Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Problem: When I turn the camcorder on in the video camera mode the lcd panel and th evf show black, it does not show current picture to record. All...

There was an earlier post that explained the black ribbon between the LCD viewfinder and the body of the camera is split. You would have to buy a new LCD viewfinder for about $90 or send it back to them to fix for around $250. The same thing happened to my camera and I can actually is the split. If you close it down more than half way the picture shows up. I called Panasonic and they said you have to buy the whole LCD, that you can't just buy the ribbon. They don't even have a part number for just the ribbon. Good luck.

My camera does not show what i have taped

Regarding no picture in playback is problem mostly of dirty / clogged video head in Sony handy-cam and can be corrected by using good quality video head cleaning tape.
As far as memory stick picture concern, I think lost pictures (42)would be in other folder on memory stick.

Black scene frame

i think you have changed the screen into other mode so that you are unable to see the recording picture there will be a switch to change the mode at the back of the cam or at the right of the cam.

Jvc 200u problem recording to vhs video tape, from camcorder

Yes, if the camera is a US camera then it is NTSC. That would be your problem, you are trying to record an NTSC signal to a PAL video. THe frame rates and resolutions are all wrong. I am even surprised that it is playing back on your TV okay...
