Question about Panasonic Proline AG-DVC7 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Tried all advices but no solution...

I have this Parasonic Proline AG-DVC7 Mini DV camcorder. The problem started when it suddenly stopped recording. I thought I was recording, then it recorded nuttin...Then I dissasemble it and took off most of these ribbon-like multi cables, clean 'em with rubbing alcohol and place em back again. Now the flip open display is not working. It doesnt play any pre recorded segments, then I cleaned the head again, also the B&W viewfinder shows the camera scene while on camcorder mode and it goes black for 5 seconds and then shows the image again for other 5 more and so on....Is there any reliable repair guy I can send it to instead of going thru Panasonic on a camcorder whose warranty has already expired? Thanks. MB

Cleaning with rubbing alcohol may have aggravated your problems - rubbing alcohol contains glycerin, which may tend to worsen the connections. to clean the connectors, use only _denatured_alcohol or electrical contact cleaner. the only connectors I have had to clean are the two leading to the video head.

WISH TO FIND OUT IF YOU CAN REPAIR MY PANASONIC AG-DVC7 MINI DV COMCORDER. WHEN I TURN IT ON, A MESSAGE APPEARS "THIS CAMERA NEEDS TO BE SERVICED"


I take the cover off the door, using the eraser as the end of a pencil - lightly press on the recording head (drum). Put a tape in and watch to see if the tape now wraps around the head and stays in position to record.

I have a Panasonic Professional camera and it say 'check rec tab' i cant record please help


On the cassette shell is a small sliding door that prevents recording, move it to the record position.
The idea is to protect a valuable tape from being recorded over.

Horizontal stripes on play back


the stripes are caused from one of the heads on the dd cylinder not updating. you need to stick a head cleaner in, if that does not solve the problem then either the head is going need a thorough clean or it is damaged. it will need replacing.

Ag-dvc7


most likely cause of this problem is loose or dirty cable connections to the video head or mechanism in the camera. get a tech to disassemble the cam and check the flex cables connecting the main board to the mechanism. same fix is good for AG-DVC10 and AG-DVC15.
