    There is no model number there, which I found unusual. There is something called "Dept. WTJ. manufactured June 1993. I bought this at a yard sale and I'm afraid I wasted my $$. I saw an ad for a digital camcorder for the same price if I can get there early Sunday AM for the sale before they are all gone.. Still, I may have to go with this one....My daughter is getting married in October.
    Thank you!!

    1993 model camcorder, yes it is quite old model.
    Now without model number, it is really difficult to find out related/ supported user manual.

The power on the Panasonic Palmcorder IQ PV-A206 turns itself off. I've tried plugging directly and with a fully charged battery, no luck.

please make this test and fix it. God bless you

If the video camera doesn't work, make sure the battery is charged (see The Battery Recharger Fix-It Guide) or replace a battery that won't hold a charge. Make sure the AC adapter is connected properly. Clean any dirty contacts on the battery, charger, and AC adapter with a cotton swab dipped in denatured alcohol. Remove corrosion with a clean pencil eraser, then wipe the area with an artist's brush to remove any debris. Find and test the fuse, if any.
If the power goes off soon after starting, recharge a low battery. Also, turn the video camera power off, then turn it back on and eject the tape. If the problem persists, check the fuse
If the battery won't charge, clean the contacts and fully discharge the battery, then recharge it. If the problem persists, replace the battery

If the video camera works intermittently, remove and reseat the to establish good contact. If necessary replace the fuse

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.

I just bought a Palmcorder but dont know how to work it

There should be either a USB Cable or a Analog cable which connects from the cam corder to the PC. Depending on the brand it may need software to copy the clips from the camcorder to the pc, or the connection will create a drive letter from which you can copy the clips from the camcorder to your computer.

Transferring Video to my Laptop

For this purpose, you must have a USB cable that connects your palmcorder to your laptop. It must be there in its box itself.

After connecting, please insert the CD that came with your palmcorder and install the software. If you don't have the CD, then you can download the required software from this below mentioned link:

I've got the 203 and all i had to do was take the bat. off and give it a couple of good hits on my palm, hitting the bottom of the camera. At sounds odd, but trully works. On the 203 its an electrical issue. Before doing this, be sure to open open the tape case, and remove your memory card and, if you can, the internal bat.

it worked for me.

Good luck.
