PANASONIC NV-DS29B SCREEN PROBLEM

Hello, I am hoping you may be able to help me. I have owned my camcorder for about 5 years and have recorded all of my baby movies on it.

A while ago my husband watched the movies through the camcorder screen and everything was fine, when he picked up the camcorder from the table to move it to the tv and connect it, it stopped working. The camcorder was not dropped or anything so I don't understand why it doesn't work. It powers up, but the screen and view finder is grey with no picture and the power mode button keeps blinking. I am unable to view the menu on the screen or anything so can't see what the problem could be. I can't afford the £90 for a repairer to look at my camcorder - especially as it might be something simple! I would be very grateful for any help you can give me as I am unable to watch the video of my little boy and girl

Playback Problems


THE FOLLOWING SOLUTION FROM LABBER (CREDIT TO HIM)
I did have a similar problem as above, and has not been able to use the camera for a long time as power turns itself off in less than 2 mins. I tried the solution #3 (by labber) above. which i have copied and pasted below .
1. Take out the tape - mine stayed on longer (without blinking) when the tape was not in.
2. press the menu button (near the viewfinder)
3. Use he wheel on top next to the viewfinderto scroll through the choices
4. Choose "display setup" by pushing the wheel in
5. Choose "C. Rest" by pushing the wheel in
6. Turn camera off
7. Next time you turn camera on you should be able to view tapes and record.
IT DID NOT WORK THE FISRT TIME SO I PUT MY FINGER IN TO TRY TO GENTLY PUSH BUTTON WHEN I TOOK THE TAPE OFF AND THEN TRIED SOLUTION ABOVE AGAIN, AND THIS TIME, IT WORKED. BUT PLEASE DONT INSERT YOUR FINGERS IN AS I DID TRY THE SOLUTION 2 OR THREE TIME IT SHOULD BE OK, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU,
THANKS LABBER

Transfer Movie Footage from my Panasonic NV-DS29B Camcorder to PC


You will need probably need a 4 pin to 6-pin firewire cable with adapter..
A software called Showbiz DVD2 was able to detect my camera and allow me to control the Camera options via the firewire cable to transfer the full video to my hard drive. You can also use a video program like Pinnacle or Roxio Media. Hope this helps you out. I know how bummed I was before.
