Question about Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Thick lines on screen

Inch thick dark lines are on the screen of the viewfinder and television. Why is this and how can they be removed? Cheers I have the same problem. It started after the cam corder indictaed on the LCD that the head needs to be cleaned. After we cleanded the head, it started with the black horizontal lines spaced about the same distance as the bid that does not have the lines. No problem while recording, (no lines), but as soon as we play back we get the horizontal lines????

    Probably no7 what I wanted to hear. I will take the Recorder to a service centre, and get a quote.
    If it is to much, it will go in the trash can. One thing for sure, this is the last time that I have purchased a PANASONIC. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I WILL BUY THE CHEAPEST RECORDER NEXT TIME AND TRASH IT WHEN IT FAILS.

Try a hard reset first: remove battery, unplug from AC source, remove all recording media and wait 10 minutes.
If that doesnt resolve the issue, it could be an issue with the circuitry. Try replacing the cable btween camcorder and TV and see if that helps..

    Could be that you damaged the head while cleaning it. Try cleaning it again with isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. Wait for it to dry completely and make sure there is no fibres, etc left behind. Try again and see, If you still have the same issue, the playback/recording head may need to be replaced.

    If you found my solution helpful in any way, kindly take a moment to "Accept" my solution.

    If not, please post back and I will try to assist you further as best I can, Thanks!

I think this requires a professional diagnostic done on the device. I would suggest you contact your dealer or panasonic for repairs, it seems quite serious.

Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print something. When the paper gets about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover. Pull out the toner. Look down at the paper in the printer. Do you see a thick dark line? Replace the toner. No thick dark line, check the fuser for damage.

42 inch samsung plasma tv black vertical lines


Hi, Depeending on the thickness of the lines matters. If the lines are Black and about 1-2 inches thick it may be a bad bottom buffer board or a bad panel (screen).
If the lines are thin 1/16 to 1/8 inch it is most likely a bad panel.
You can open up the set and depending on the model, see the thin board/boards running across the bottom with ribbon cables going to the panel. You may be able to attempt reseating the ribbon cables, but be careful as some retainer plugs break very easy.
If the lines are thick black and the reseating doesn't correct it you may be able to buy the coresponding buffer. Unfortunately some bottom buffers are actually part of the panel. If you are not comfortable taking it apart then call a professional but be aware labor charges start around $200 not counting parts, panels start at $600 up to over $1000
hope this helps
Thanks
Eric

Thick color lines on screen


Hi ,Sorry, this is not a solution. I have a question about your line. Is it transparent? (can you see through if the picture is bright)Does it remain there all the time if you change inputs? My LG 42" just had a blue transparent line appear on the right side of screen. Tried a few trouble shooting things w/ no change. About 1 hour later it went away. Did you find a solution and what was it?
