Question about Panasonic AG-DVC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Dropped the Camera and now only shows dark "lowlight" screen/recording.

I recently had an accident and dropped the camera while it was off ( I tripped while carrying while off). When I went to turn it on to check to see if there were problems, the view in camera mode and when recorded was a dark "low light" looking version of what was supposed to be normal. I was wondering if I need to bring this camera in for repairs, or if when dropped some buttons were pressed, altering its normal state. How can I fix this, as quickly as possible?

** I also tried to reset all the settings. It did nothing.

Please check to see if the iris is hung in the lens. Impact damage can cause the damper motor to get stuck which controls the iris in the lens. This can be repaired by removal of the lens and freeing the iris vane assy, but this should only be done by a qualified service tech.

Hope this helps,

Faint LCD Screen


i`ve heard about this, but in the other 2 situations the cameras were dropped on water, the problem is that the, lcd connector is not making the proper contact with the main electreonic board, maybe your camera was dropped or something hit it, you just have to open it, and check the lcd connector and adjust it.

Dropped camera-two corners dark


Check what the actual pictures look like when they are downloaded to PC or to print. The problem may only be on the screen. It may be very expensive to replace the screen, but you might be able to live with it?

Good Luck

Camcorder Dropped


Sounds like your display screen is broken, but a least it can still record, which is most important; just don't use the zoom feature and point the camera at the action.

It sounds like you broke the backlight on the display. I would contact Casio to find a repair center.
