Question about Panasonic AG-1980 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Good Audio, Bad Video

This is on a Panasonic AG-1980P. The video is dark, almost black (no chroma) and there is no vertical hold. I have another working unit and I swapped the entire K-Mechanism and head amp as well as the power supply with no change. Thus with the head, head amp, and power supply eliminated, the problem is in the main board somewhere. Is anyone familiar with this problem?

Sounds like a loss of luminance -- check the analog yc pack for bad capacitors.

There are many aftermarket black box products that convert composite video and audio to USB. That is what you will need. Check with computer parts site for Composite to USB and RCA audio to USB and you should find the items you need.

Video noise pattern in playback panasonic AG 1980P VCR


It sounds like the video heads are dirty, or the tracking is off. I would first try adjusting the tracking to see if it can be corrected. If that does not work then I would clean the video heads using a video head cleaner (Radio Shack) You could also try a different tape to see if it that could be the reason. Also double check you video connections to your monitor to make sure they are good. If all of this fails than it may have to be checked out at an authorized Panasonic repair facility!

I hope this helps and good luck!

S-video problem on Panasonic TV


Have you tried another S-Video patch-cord?
Some cheaper ones short across pins.
What output from DVD are you using?
If composite video 'Yellow' RCA socket, a cheapo cable can also create sync problems ie signal timing, causing patterns on screen.
The S-Video is actually 2 signals - one for Chroma C and the other for Luminosity Y. With S-Video to S-Video connections, this gives better quality than composite, as each line can handle separate voltages, levels and frequency for Chroma = pixel color and luminosity = pixel intensity.
Composite has to cram all this info onto one channel, so signal quality is lower than S-video.
A hack that videophiles use is to place a 470nF ceramic capacitor across the 2 signal pins, instead of the cheaper just bridging them together.
This apparently helps to re-sync the combined signal from composite.
A tester on ohms and steady hands can test whether your cable is cheap-shorted type, or better synced type.
Across C and Y pins:
0 ohms=shorted
high reading or open=small sync cap
If making own cable mod:
Pins are closely spaced, so easier way is to strip and dress cable near S-Video plug, solder wires to cap accordingly, join composite to cap & Gnd as shown, insulate.

This camera is making a sound when recording and also the lens has devloped some fuzz inside. Please let me know where they can service and clean lens out. Also I need an to purchase a new battery. Thank...


the sound you refer to during recording on the ag-456up is probably bad bearings on the video head. unfortunately, this part is no longer available. any good electronic repair shop should be able to clean the lens. a new battery should be available from wal-mart, circuit city, best buy, etc.

Panasonic AG-455 Problem


The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.

Power down - F 04 error


These are good old VCRs probably in need of a belt overhaul.

Try unpluging the unit for 2 minutes and see if the error message is reset.
