Question about Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Grease on the inside of lens

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!

Aaron

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.

SD cards go up to 2GB in size. SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB.

The PV-GS35 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. Your 1GB and 2GB cards are SD cards. Your new 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them.

Few lenses used in optical devices are uncoated and some coatings are easily damaged and at the same time such devices aren't airtight and will sometimes develop condensation inside.

Dismantling and cleaning might help - or might not. The smudges might be oil or grease from careless assembling...
