Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV203 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Red power light flashing on and off

My camcorder has been fine until recently. Now when I turn it on to "camera", the red power light stays on for 3-4 seconds and then starts flashing on and off. It will record for the 3-4 seconds that the red power light stays on consistently, but when the red power light begins flashing on and off, it will no longer record. Also, when the light is on, the LCD displays the word "index"...I have never seen this before. It stops recording when the "index" word disappears.

    My camcorder just started doing the same thing. I would love to find out how to fix this.

    I have the same problem too - called customer service - said power supply problem will cost ~200 plus shipping :(.



    Any cheaper way to fix it?

    I have the same problem...started with the VCR mode...won't play or rewind or FW tapes, but for a few seconds, light flashes...nothing...same thing in record mode

    I am having the same problem. The power light flashes in VCR mode and record mode. I have noticed though, if there is no mini DV tape in there, that you can put it in picture mode and it won't flash. Has anyone else noticed this?

Can't take picture or record video?


Try turning the screen all the way around and close the screen so the screen its left outside where you can see if that doesn't work you will need to replace the ribon that connects the screen to camcorder.

Camera will not turn on, red light flashes once. Possibly because it has been overcharged.


Hi,
Red light flashes denotes the problem. Single time flash of red light moves towards your battery need replacement. Replace the battery with new one and it will work fine again.
Thanks

Gopro hero screen is blank and the red light stays on


when you insert a battery into a hero3 or 3+ black model you must wait 4 seconds before trying to turn it on or it wont turn on until you remove the battery and then reinsert it while waiting 4 seconds to try and power it up:

My Flip Ultra HD has a red light that blinks when I try to charge it. It won't charge, what can I do to charge it?


Make sure you use a good USB 2 port and make sure your computer stays turned ON during the charging or it will not charge. The red light should stay on on the front of the camcorder while charging and will go off when charging is complete.
Try a different USB port maybe also. or if using a USB extension make sure it is a powered extension, and if not, connect the camcorder directly into a USB instead of using an extension.
My extension has a light to show that it is a powered extension.

I just got a brand new flip video mino hd and it wont turn on. i've charged it for atleast 4 hours. when it is plugged in the red light comes on. that is the only response i get from it. any...


I had to charge mine for 7 to 9 hours the first time, and make sure computer is left ON or it won't charge and the red light stays lit until it is fully charged. make sure the red light isn't blinking if it is, plug it into a different USB 2 port and don't use extension with it unless it is a powered USB extension.

Flashing Red Light....


The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.

Flashing red power light


The problem here is condensation inside the camera. I leave the camera turned off, remove the cassette tape and then point a hair drier on warm or low heat and slow speed right into the innards of the camera through the open cassette tape door. I run the hair dryer for 5 minutes and then replace the cassette. If the camera still dosen't work just wait for another 5 or 10 minutes and then it will work OK.

Help with my Panasonic nv-ds1 camcorder ? ? ?


Its the tape is stuck or the mechanism is jammed or the small pan caps have started there demise of your camcorder.. Inside most camcorders there are small surface mounted capacitors made by panasonic and they all I say ALL will leak one day and when they do its not just the cap thats bad but if left unattended it will eat up the Printed curcuit traces on the pc board. Have the unit looked at right away by a camcorder expert and see if its too late to save the board. Good Luck
