Question about Panasonic NV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

No playback on my Panasonic NV-GS15 camcorder

I am now having a problem with the playback on my Camera -Panasonic NV-GS15.

The LCD screen is simply blank and the counter at the centre top of the screen remains on 0:00:00. This has now happened on two separate tapes. I know the latest one has film on it becuase I played it first thing this morning. I then took some more footage during today, git home looking forward to seeing it ont he TV and it's blank.

I have rewound the tape to the begining and fast forwarded it to the end (the screen counter remains at 0:00:00 all the way through). I have left it on play for ages to see if it suddenly starts playing, but nothing. I have tried using the reset button on the camera and still nothing!

There is a number in the bottom right hand corner of the screen - F3856 with the word PICTURE in a cyan colour. I have checked the manual and done a search on the WWW, but cannot find any reference to this number.
I think it might be stuck in photoshot mode? Is this possible?
Does anyone have any idea's what has happened or what I can do to

Clean the heads with a Panasonic MiniDV cleaning tape. I've seen many cameras come through our shop with this problem - a quick cleaning made a world of difference.

SOURCE: Service manual for Panasonic Handycam NV GS15

I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.

No color


Do you have a replacement cord between your tv and camcorder that you can try?

There probably is a short in the yellow cord causing the picture to go to B & W.

WONT TRANSFER TO PC


You need a software program to do it with. Pinnacle Systems Studio software will work. Once the camera is connected to your pc and turned on a screen will appear asking you to use the program.

Playback problem on Panasonic NV-GS15


It is probably a dirty head. One camera i had i had to clean it much more often that i wanted to and certainly before any important shoot.

Here is a tip though. Always use the same make of tape (and code). If you do change your tape (or code) then clean the heads before you put in the different tape. this is all to do with "dry or wet" lubrication used on different tapes. i do not know enough about that to comment, but the tip comes form a very good source.

Some people run the whole tape through on record (with the lens hood on) before they use it. I do not think it will help for this problem, but you can try.
