Question about Panasonic Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure.

There is a small flat ribbon cable between the camera and the LCD display that probably has a small crack in it. Move the cable the right way and it works. The cable neds to be replaced. This is NOT a repair to be done by anyone without prior repair experience as there are too many cables and connectors that can be damaged easily.

The repair shouldn't be too much as the hinge with the cables (part number LSXY0764) is only $17.14. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

It does look as if your LCD screen is dead, they are not cheap to replace, but you could pop it in to your local Camera shop, they will mostly be glad to help you.

Panasonic pv-gs15 will not play back recorded video in the mini dv deck. all i see is a blue screen with red text ''picture'' on bottom right corner of the screen


Make sure your tape tab is open. See if this works. Sometimes the tab should be closed to prevent eraser or recording over existing film but sometimes the tape tab has to be open to allow for playback or dubbing?

When i flip open the side view finder, i get a blank screen. it works only when the screen is half way open.


Hi,

It sounds like the ribbon cable has worked itself loose either on the flip or the main body of the camera itself.
If you are confident that you can can take the camera apart and check the cables then all you will need is a set of precision screwdrivers, patience and steady hands as you will be working with delicate parts.

If your not confident with repairing yourself then i recommend that you take the camera to a specialist.


Regards.
