SOURCE: Panasonic PV-DV102

there are 2 causes why your camcorder is eating up the tapes; either the tape head is dirty or there is a mechanical fault inside your unit (something might be misaligned that causes the film to be sucked in).

try to clean the tape head of your unit by using a tape head cleaner, it is like the tapes that you use with the unit but instead of a film there is a cloth like material inside that is used to clean the tape heads to avoid the film sticking to it

if the issue still persists then you should contact your manufacturer and set up a repair for the unit

SOURCE: I need windows 7 usb


While there is no software for windows 7 the camcorder will work on older computers.

windows 7 has usb support and it should allow you to see the camcorder in the "computer" folder that you find from the desktop or from the start menu, the camcorder will be named as "removable storage device" If it does not work right away when plugged in, you need to find a older computer to use it with.

unfortunately panasonic has not made newer software for this camcorder.

My viewfinder and LCD monitor show either flickering images or nothing at all.

you should change the flex wire which connect LCD with camcorder. I bought it in the repair shop and did it by miself. It's very common problem with LCD.
Good luck

What does Check record tab mean?

the term "tab" are used for sometime for "switch" and "button". So from general information, I think the camcorder has some kind of switch malfunction. Usually record button (toggles on and off) may be the problem if all other functions in PLAY mode is working. Also you may have "protective record tap" on tape may be changed. Hope this helps. -james
