Question about Cameras

1 Answer

We have a 2005 panasonic mini DV, with 800x, About two years ago we began to have problems playing back the video, the sound was gone and there was blue stripes through the playback video screen, or the screen was a crazy jumble of the image. It seemed to fix it self most of the time, this time however we just have a blue screen and it won't play back our videos on the camera. I fooled around with recording speed but I'm not sure that's the problem. Is our problem something we can fix or should we find a way to transfer our tapes to DVD? Any help would be very appriecated Thank you Susannah susannahfranklin@hotmail.com

Hi,
It seems that video head of camcorder got clogged/ dirty so become unable to read signal on minidv tapes.
Cleaning of video head will work, buy Video Head Cleaning MiniDV tape from Amazon.com or Radio Shack etc and clean video head as per instructions on tape.
Thanks.

The picture just stopped working, as did the


I had a problem like this with another mini-DV camera (Canon GL1) and I took care of the problem.My first thought is to use a head cleaner tape (dry head). It sounds like you have a dirty video head. DON'T try to use anything else, don't stick anything into the head or tape area. No liquids like alcohol with a q-tip, din't stick you finger in there (oils) and NO METAL. You don't want to scratch the head, even a q-tip, Kleenex, plastic, wood, cotton, t-shirt will scratch the head (and lenses). If this doesn't work, you may need to have it cleaned in a shop. Good Luck!

Looking for a info manual for usgae


You should first check the JVC website for a manual. This is a recent model and a manual should be available for free download. Another option is a website called safemanuals.com. They have a massive database and often can supply manuals that are not available elsewhere. The specific supplier is diplodocs and you will need to create an account. Its free and easy. Good luck

Panasonic Video Camera


Hmmm. Try cleaning the tape heads with a mini dv cassette cleaner and see what happens afterwards. I would also recommend playing the tapes on a different camera and if you get the same response, then your audio is gone forever, but I highly doubt that would be the case.
