DVX100A panasonic camera tape mechanism not working

I have a panasonic DVX100a camera and recently the tape mechanism won't recognize the tape. I have tried new tapes, cleaning tapes and nothing works except just opening and closing and then occasionally it will recognize the tape and allow me to record with it. It is like a switch has gone bad, but I don't know where. Can I buy just the tape mechanism or must I send it in to get it repaired?

You can open the cassette cover and spray inside the upper left side of mechanism(closer to the back) with contact cleaner spray,because there is a rec inhibit switch.If it's not damaged and just dirty you solve your problem ,but if is damaged it needs replacement.

Dvx100a showing black screens on lcd screen and view finder


You probably have the lens cap on, the iris dial closed, or you are in vcr mode rather than camera mode. You may also have the nd filter set to 1/64th, this is only for bright sunlight. When shooting indoors with low light, set the nd filter to off and hit the iris button until iris manual appears on the lcd, then dial the iris dial in front of the iris button up or down to bring the iris to around 5.6 f stop.

Panasonic dvx parts


We are one of the Panasonic ASC and so far we had no problem with DVX100P parts. Although that model has been discontinued parts are still available.
Most of the DVX100A parts are common for DVX100P

Tapes won't Playback in other deivice


Hello! If the recorded tapes playback ok on the camera and not ok on another devices, you need to readjust the playback on this camera using a tape which playbacks fine on the other devices. This means that is a small difference on the tape transport. So when the supply and takeup post rollers readjusted and the audio and video playback are good, then your camera is fine.

either use a manufacturer recommended head cleaning tape or have a tech give it a good hand cleaning. Panasonic head cleaning tapes work well.
