Hi tlaufer , According to the symptom this problem is related to the VIDEO HEAD, As you earlier try to clean the head but no results, Please open the cassette compartment of your camera (as when you insert the cassette in it) for 30 mins (remains open cassette compartment) Actueally some time due to moisture head get durt. After 30 mins insert the cassette and play it. Hope it will start work again fine. But if no result from the said procedure then there must be a damadge of point of the head, in this condition you have to replace the VIDEO HEAD assembly. Thanks for using fixya.
Hi there. I undertand how upset you must be. I would be if it happened to me. Did you check the manual for this error code?
If you didn't, I'll tell you what it means. It means one of 2 things: 1) you have a bad disk or:
2) you are trying to use a disk that has been finalized. Once a disk has been finalized, it cannot be recorded on.
I'm sorry, I know it's a bummer, and it's not what you wanted to hear, but it happens occasionally. There is no fix for it. You just have to get a new disk and record it again.
Thanks for using FixYa, and if you have any further questions, just comment back. If you don't mind, please rate my solution a fixya.
The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.
while your monitoring the sound when recording it cuts out or while you playback the tape it dropps out? if it's noticed during playback it's one 3 things. the heads are dirty, the tape tension is low or the heads are bad. send it to video tech service in sacramento. that guy is super cool.
Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for
five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback
then eject again five times, these will serve as your
video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning
cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera.
Most camera has built in video head cleaner
installed inside and activates only when you insert,
initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is
still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
Another post here noted yet another discussion about giving the camera a whack on the side. This is not a good idea but since it fixed it points out that it was unlikely it was something the tape cleaner would fix. This likely means a trip to the repair depot.
