Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-D209 Camcorder
If the camcorder has been sitting unused for a while, there is a good possibility that the capacitors on the PCboards have started to leak. A good test of this is to turn your camcorder on, let it heat up, and then smell it (inside where the tape goes is usually the best place). If you smell fish, your caps are leaking. Once this happens, it is recommended that ALL of the caps be replaced and this repair is not cost effective to do. Another sign of bad caps is if the image in your viewfinder rolls, is wavy, or smeared in any way.
If you think that it is not a "bad cap" problem, the mechanism may just need to be cleaned by a professional. If you have a VHS-C head cleaning tape, you can try that for 5 to 10 seconds and see if it helps. www.austintelstarservices.com
