Question about Sign Video Zoom Commander Dvx For Panasonic Cameras

Open Question

I have a Panasonic AG-HMC40 and obtained a Rec Control (not LANC) for zoom and start/stop recording. The zoom appears to work fine, but I can't get the unit to start or stop recording. I've checked the user manual without success. Could this simply be a bad Rec Control or am I missing something with the camera set-up.

Hi - I have a panasonic ag-7330 SVHS deck. It lights up but does absolutely nothing. The Video Rec Servo light is blinking constantly. Any ideas?


It could have a timer record present that needs to be cleared. Otherwise it could be the mode switch playing up. But that too can be caused by physical damage inside the unit, thus setting the mechanism in the wrong position. In other words it thinks it is in record mode when it's not!

I have a Panasonic Professional camera and it say 'check rec tab' i cant record please help


On the cassette shell is a small sliding door that prevents recording, move it to the record position.
The idea is to protect a valuable tape from being recorded over.

Auto zooming on power up, intermittent problem


Possibly a intermittent connection in the control buttons or the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector from the controls to the main PCB.
Take it in for servicing, they will do a trial by substitution (swap out control) and lubricate the connector.
There isn't really anything you can do to fix with this sort of problem.

Cheers.

Foot pedal won't work with hands free microphone


The 3750 won't let you control the telephone record jack. The only way you can get a mic to work using the Tel Rec jack is by pressing and holding the 'Tel Rec' button for about 1 second. But this isn't compatible with the hands-free operation.

If you're looking to do hands-free recording, it uses the built-in conference mic. Press and hold the 'Conf Rec' button for about a second and it should start recording. This built-in mic is located on the right-hand side of the machine near the front by the headset jack.

If you want to control the machine via a foot control while in Conference Record mode, you'll have to change the 'Foot Control Dictate' setting in the menu. Here's how:

1) Press and hold the 'Erase' & 'Search' buttons for about 5 seconds until the menu appears.

2) Scroll through the options until you get to 'Foot Control Dictate' and set this to 'Yes'.

3) Press 'Stop' to exit the menu.

4) Press the 'Conf Rec' button to enter record mode.

Now you should be able to control the start/stop of the record function via the foot control.

Hope this helps...

Panasonic AG-DVC10


There are eight separate parts that make up the DVC10 power switch assembly. Total cost for these is about $48 from Panasonic parts or authorized distributors.

Cameras that do not turn on usually do not require replacement of the switch parts, since the problem is on the main board or power/battery assembly.

Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape


Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

How can I prevent the Handy cam to shut down on stand-by as I use the cam for computer recording


Buy one of these:

If you plug it into the LANC input on your camcorder it will prevent the camera from going into standby mode (assuming you have a camcorder with a Control-L jack).

Panasonic AG-DVC10P zoom is stuck on max...


most likely cause of this problem is a stuck or defective zoom control. I have seen this one or twice. you may be able to disassemble the camera and free the zoom control if it is stuck, but it also may need to be replaced.
