I need the user manual for panasonic ag-ds555


I can't find one online either but the AG-DS850 manual should be extremely close if not the same (I can't see any differences in the front/rear controls except the model#): You can download the 850 manual here: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/provideo/om/agds850_en_om.pdf

Replacing capacitors


I have done several DS55s, DS850s, DS550s. Let me know if you're still interested. Typical repair cost runs $300 - $500.

Rolling static pattern


Solved! (I hope??).
The cable from the Keyspan to the AG-DS555 deck had an extension cable - when this was removed, the rolling specks disappeared!!! I tested the same set-up on a JVC DV deck and didn't see any problem?? But I suppose that S-VHS is much older technology - I hope that this was it!

Guess the moral of the story is - check every cable!

No video output


AG-DS555s are plagued by capacitor failure problems on all the video boards in the deck. Replacement of all surface mount electrolytic capacitors is the solution, but before you try that, give the heads a good cleaning. It's amazing what a miniscule amount of dirt on the heads will do.
