Question about Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I have a PV-GS35 that is in great shape - except for what looks like a spot of grease, or other viscous substance, on the inside of the lens. I suspect it's grease from the internal gearing that might have splattered while in use on a warm day, but I can't confirm without an analysis.
It doesn't completely block the picture, but I'd like it removed, if possible. If I could get the lens off without breaking the thing, I'd do it myself.
I'd be much obliged for any assistance. Thanks!
I had the same problem. I ended up buying a broken unit on e-bay for $10. Replacing the entire lens housing isn't all that difficult if you can find a screwdriver small enough. It's far easier to just replace the lens than try to get inside the lens/CCD unit. You can find the repair manual complete with exploded views at http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=27179. Start by taking apart the e-bay parts camera 1st before you try yours.

Stripping these lenses can be tricky, i suggest you get in done by a panasonic technician. you dont want to damage anything making it worse and cost more in the long run.
