Question about Panasonic PV-GS31 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Camera won't turn on

My camera was working fine, until all of a sudden I tried to turn it on and since that moment about a month and a half ago it won't turn on. I've recharged the batteries, plugged the camera straight into the wall, and still nothing. At the very least, I would like to take my tape out, because it's been stuck in there for a long time, so is there anything you can suggest?

    I didn't use my camera for almost 6 months. It worked fine then. I got married and tried to turn it on in Hawaii got nothing. I bought a new battery and also tried plugging it into a outlet, but got no power at all.. My tape is also stuck inside. Anyone know what to do?

Don't take it to any normal technician. Go to Authorized service of LG and get it done. It is not any software issue, i think it is hardware problem.

Hi, Have you tried a different battery as it sounds like the battery may be a lemon? Also depending where you bought it you may be able to return or exchange it still.

Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once. Take the camera back for exchange with your retailer if this does not correct the problem.

White Screen


I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!

Camera won't turn ON


First off, everything was not fine until this morning. You had this occur a month ago. Frankly, I would have done exactly as you did a month ago and nothing more. I have seen too many electrical problems permanently solved by turning a device off and then on, or by rebooting. Here is what I would generally recommend: 1. See what the camera manual suggests. 2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months. 3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves. 4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own. 5. Call Sony.
