Question about Panasonic NV-GS17 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Hi, I have the Panasonic NV-GS17EB mini DV camcorder which suddenly developed a problem with the swivel LCD screen. I get horizontal lines across the screen and nothing else. I can see through the viewfinder and the camera records fine. Do I need a new screen ? Is it a problem that can be fixed ?

The problem is likely to be the flat ribbin cable that goes from the camera body to the screen. It has developed a crack in one or more of the wires. The cable will need to be replaced. This is a tricky operation as the dis-assembly of a camera is not simple. I would recommend that you take this to an authorized Panasonic service center for repair.

Hi, I have a Panasonic NV-GS17EB.It is working perfectly fine and a nice camera. But recently the LCD view finder is giving some problem. It goes blank when I open the LCD view finder fully. But it...


the ribbon cable that carries the signal to the screen sounds like it has become damaged
thatcan cause the problem
when it is all the way open it stretches the cable resulting in a gap to form, so when only open part of the way there is still a signal. see if there is anything in the hinge that might be causing the stretching of the cable, as that is almost surely the problem..

now take the DVD-rw, drop it in pc (movie folder..this is real quick process)
next cassette to be recorded.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen


Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

BLACK Lines and having to reset.


i assume that the 'black lines' are 5 bars of dark video spaced equally across the screen. this is a symptom of dirty heads. use a mini DV cleaning tape, and the problem should go away.
