The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to usually be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Tip

Best HD Camcorder for Mac, iMovie, iMovie? 08, iMovie? 09


Recording daily life and interesting things with a HD camcorder becomes a trend for our people. They like to share these digital camcorder videos on Mac or PC with family and friends. However, selecting a good digital camcorder for Mac is not easy for green hand. Maybe more tips need paying attention, for example, the types of your camcorder and Mac, the version of iMovie on Mac, Mac and PC compability with digital camcorder and so on.

iMovie has been a Mac OS X only application bundled in the iLife suite of Macintosh applications since iMovie3. From 2007 to 2010, Apple developed iMovie to iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09, and iMovie for iPhone and iPod Touch. Luckily, iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 are designed to work with a wide range of digital video devices and formats, including tape-based(use a FireWire cable, also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) and the latest tapeless camcorders that record to flash memory, a hard disk drive(HDD), or DVD media.

A list of Digital Camcorders Compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS X
NTSC Camcorders(a video format used in North America, Central America, Japan, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC20, DC50, DC220, DC230, FS10, FS11, FS100, HF10, HF11, HF100, HG10, HG20, HG21, HR10.
JVC: GZ-HD10, GZ-HD30, GZ-HD40, GZ-MG330, GZ-MG67, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG555U, GZ-MG505U.
Panasonic: HDC-DX1, HDC-SD5, HDC-SD9, HDC-SD20, HDC-SD200, HDC-HS9, HDC-HS20, HDC-HS100, HDC-HS200, HDC-HS300, HDC-SX5, SDR-H50, SDR-H60, SDR-H200, SDR-S10
Sony: HDR-CX11, HDR-CX12, HDR-SR1, HDR-SR7, HDR-SR11, HDR-TG1, DCR-SR82, DCR-SR200, DCR-DVD308, DCR-DVD508, DCR-DVD403.
PAL Camcorders(a video format used in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, most of Asia, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC50E, DC220E, DC330E, FS10E, FS100E, HF11E, HF100E, HG10E, HG20E, HG21E.
JVC: GZ-HD10KR, GZ-HD30, GZ-HD40, GZ-MG255, GZ-MG67, GZ-MG155, GZ-MG330.
Panasonic: HDC-DX1, HDC-SD9, HDC-SD200, HDC-TM20, HDC-TM300, HDC-HS20, HDC-HS200, HDC-HS300, SDR-H79, SDR-H60, SDR-S15, SDR-S26.
Sony: DCR-DVD908E, HDR-CX11E, HDR-CX12, HDR-SR1E, DCR-SR5E, HDR-SR12E, HDR-TG1E, HDR-CX7E, HDR-UX20E, DCR-SR82E, DCR-SR100E, DCR-SR300E.

Although iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS work with most of HD digital camcorders using MPEG-2 (standard definition), MPEG-4, AVCHD, and H.264 formats, not all tapeless camcorders are compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie '09 because of the wide range of media types and the different ways manufacturers store video on these media types.

How to fix it? To meet people editing AVCHD, MOD files with iMovie, enjoying HD camcorder video on Mac, a powerful HD Video Converter for Mac is specially designed for people who need to convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS, MOD, TS, TOD, MKV files to iMovie MP4, MOV, DV for better editing. Besides, that Mac HD Converter is also the very choice to convert HD video like TP, TRP, M5S, TOD, MPEG2 HD, MPEG4 HD, MOV HD, WMV HD, AVI HD to Mac application: iTunes, iDVD, FCP, FCE, etc.

Product HDC-SX5


The original battery it is supposed to work for a longer time.
If it works only for twenty minutes, and you recently bought the camera you should contact the seller and ask a replacement for the camera.

Problem with HD writer 2.0E


The reason for this error is that there is a conflict between HD Writer and other software on your computer. I was trying to find a solution for weeks before Panasonic advised me to remove other DVD burning software on my computer. I therefore removed Pinnacle and DVD decrypter (which I believe was causing the problem), reinstalled HD Writer and then everything worked fine. Note however that the DVD-RW discs I had tried to use before were corrupted and couldn't be reformatted and therefore once you have removed the other software and reinstalled HD Writer, start again with new DVD-RW discs. Good Luck.

Hd writer 2.0E fro sx/sd


I had this same issue...I bet you're using DVD-R, am I correct?

Apparently you can't copy video from DVD-R to the HD Writer. Period. Just can't do it. (Would be nice if they mentioned this in the manual.)

You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.

I'm using a program called Handbrake (free) which I think can convert your .vob files (from the Video_TS folder on your DVD) to quicktime files, or similar, so that you can actually do something with the video...

Best of luck, I'm really no expert, and I probably won't return to this page, so a reply to me is likely not going to be read by me...
