    I'm having the same problem. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Have a similar issue. The LCD display suddenly stops working. Almost as if some setting is wrong. Viewfinder and camcorder functions working fine.

Sound like the wires running to the screen have a short or they become disconnected

The lcd screen when opened all the way the screen doesnt turn on but if opened half way it turns on

Press the reset which is located on the side of your Camcorder. If that does not fix the problem then you have an intermittent Cable/contact that goes from the circuit board to the LCD.

You can find a charger at Wal-Mart for about $45 that includes a car charger. I just got mine there after searching Best Buy and Circuit City to no avail! Just make sure to check the back of the case for compatibility with the battery and/or camcorder.

PV-GS31 often disconnects from vista

I called Panasonic directly today & asked about the Vista driver for the GS31. No such driver exists, but they are trying to develop a driver specifically for Vista users of this camcorder. Finally the mystery is correctly answered & solved for us Vista owners! woooohooo !

My LCD Screen..

Your flat-wire connection between LCD monitor and the monitor PWB inside the camera is broken. can't fix it by yourself. Look for a Panasonic authorized service only!

Panasonic PV-GS31 video to PC trouble.

The usb is only used for the still pics and for the webcam. You need a DV cable to upload vid.
