Question about Panasonic AG-DVX100A Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Problem with recording

Please review and let me know if you have any practical advise or a solution.
Camcoders: AG-DVC7
Issue: I turn a main switch to ON. Everything seems to be normal. See see all objects in videofinder, I can zoom in and zoom out. However, when I press a red button to start recording, it temporarily turns off the camcoder. In a short period of time it turns on again. I press a red button to start recording. However, the problem repeats itself. I noticed that recording is possible at the beginning of filming session. However, after several Pauses, it works worse and worse.

WISH TO FIND OUT IF YOU CAN REPAIR MY PANASONIC AG-DVC7 MINI DV COMCORDER. WHEN I TURN IT ON, A MESSAGE APPEARS "THIS CAMERA NEEDS TO BE SERVICED"


I take the cover off the door, using the eraser as the end of a pencil - lightly press on the recording head (drum). Put a tape in and watch to see if the tape now wraps around the head and stays in position to record.

  • Like all the old video recorders there are mechanical parts inside what need cleaning in high priority the parts that mechanical activate switches for the intake in the little microcontactsswitches and the most important of all are mechanical mode-select-switches where timing is an hot issue
  • The entire process is timed often gears are used, but sometimes also strings that can slip by age and or dirt, cleaning and contact cleaner and look for bad soldering.
  • Also check that the lens motor for the aperture setting is working properly, because everything concerns mechanical settings when that failure then stops the device.
    Also the zoom lens motor that are the first mechanical parts after the tape was lace in. all must exactly done in a special short timing.

I have a Panasonic Professional camera and it say 'check rec tab' i cant record please help


On the cassette shell is a small sliding door that prevents recording, move it to the record position.
The idea is to protect a valuable tape from being recorded over.

It turns on but when you push the recorder button it shuts off


Bad power switch... very, very common with the DVC7 and DVC15. Get the power switch/recorder button assembly replaced and hopefully you won't have the problem again until the new one decides to act up.

Panasonic AG-DVC10 Startup Issue


Most likely cause for this problem is defective power switch and defective record start/stop switch. The DVC7, DVC10 and DVC15 all use similar switches, and I have repaired all three.

most likely cause of this problem is loose or dirty cable connections to the video head or mechanism in the camera. get a tech to disassemble the cam and check the flex cables connecting the main board to the mechanism. same fix is good for AG-DVC10 and AG-DVC15.
