When i chage the option of oFF to CAMERA nothing turns on and when I change the option OFF to VCR the screen just show strange symbol and SP and it does not work


just so you know, your camera model was included in the list for what we call the "ccd program". this program has ran for 5 years and unfortunately ended march this year. sony gave free repairs for cameras and camcorders affected by the defective ccd imaging sensor before the said date. issue with the camera shows a black or distorted screen in camera mode. but the you should still be able to see the indicators on the screen. when switch to vcr you should be able to play back previous recordings that you made. better to really make sure its a ccd issue, play a tape that you're sure contains a movie recording and play it, then set it to camera mode and see if you get just a black screen. if you try recording using a tape, you may see nothing but should hear the audio part. if this is what's happening we can be sure it's a ccd issue. if your camcorder just won't turn on in camera mode, maybe the power switch turned defective or it can be other parts of the unit that stopped working.if this is the case, then of course, your unit may require service to address the problem.hope this info helps.thanks:)

Describe your Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Problem: When I turn the camcorder on in the video camera mode the lcd panel and th evf show black, it does not show current picture to record. All...


There was an earlier post that explained the black ribbon between the LCD viewfinder and the body of the camera is split. You would have to buy a new LCD viewfinder for about $90 or send it back to them to fix for around $250. The same thing happened to my camera and I can actually is the split. If you close it down more than half way the picture shows up. I called Panasonic and they said you have to buy the whole LCD, that you can't just buy the ribbon. They don't even have a part number for just the ribbon. Good luck.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Hey hill,
This happened to me one time. Judging from the date of this, you probably have found a solution. The bottom line is that the camera has accidentally been placed in "Standby" mode. It is the lever surrounding the back of camera record button. When this is moved to standby, the VCR mode works, but nothing for the Camera mode. Hope this helps.

How can I play back a tape produced on the GRHD1U?


Tapes may be played back by the camera itself. If the tape was shot in the 720P (HD) or 480P (SD) modes, it cannot be played back on a standard DV VCR or camera. Tapes shot in the 480i (DV) mode are completely compatible and can be played back on any DV VCR/camera. In addition, tapes can be dubbed to a JVC HD DVHS VCR via the firewire connector.
