Re: panasonic pv-v4540vcr issue
You took a power SPIKE/SURGE, then the power went off, then on again. It might be fixable-at a cost. Happened to me when the electric company got their wires crossed while repairing a downed line. Actually melted my surge protector. Next time learn what I learned-buy a surge protcetor with the FASTEST response time.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I don't recognize your first problem. The "light to dark" issue I believe is intentionally engineered (mine does it too); it prevents recording DVDs on to tape. Try running the DVD player directly to the TV. Radio Shack used to have a box that would correct this issue too, you might check there.
One possible cause is that normal recording could not be performed because the heads were dirty at the time of recording. Clean the heads, and perform recording and playback again. If normal playback can be performed, the heads are clean. Before an important recording, be sure to conduct a test recording to make sure that normal recording can be performed.
≥If the heads become dirty soon after cleaning, the problem may be the tape. If so, try another cassette.
≥During playback, the picture or sound may be interrupted momentarily, but this is not a malfunction of the Camcorder. (One possible cause is that the playback is interrupted by dirt or dust that momentarily adheres to the heads.)
Firewire transfer problem with PV-GS320. HAd bought the PV-GS90 and ran into significant transfer issues importing to Mac (iMovie and Fincal Cut Express HD both had problems). Upgraded to GS320 as Macworld rated it highly. Same problems: video plays back perfectly with no computer connection. once connected, video and audio stutter, go out of sync, sometimes just stop and/or crash the program.
I've used a borrowed Canon GL with this Mac before with no issues, so I suspect the camera. Have tried reset button, trashing preferences, restarts, the works. still can't get clean video to transfer from a brand new camera. Any Ideas?
The panasonic PV-L750 comes with an 8 MB Compact Flash card for storing digital still pictures.
To remove this flash card from the camcorder, open the cassette loading area using the "Tape Eject" button. The card is located inside this area. Find the "Card Eject" button to remove the flash card.
You will have to purchase a USB compact flash card READER to view and/or transfer the pictures to your PC's hard drive. You can purchase one at any computer supply store, or buy one online if you like.
Once you've transfered the images from the USB flash card reader to your PC, you can view and/or edit them with your favorite graphics image editing software.
