Question about Panasonic NV-GS180EF-S Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Black horizontal lines accross screen

Hello there, I bought a Panasonic NV-GS180 3CCD videocamera 2 years ago. I have not used it much but now really need it as I have a new baby.

The other day for some reason, despite being fully charged the large battery I have stopped working completely so am using a smaller one with not as much power. Then last night I tried to transfer my tapes to my pc and the first one worked fine and then it kept on stopping and wouldn't transfer the full tape for the second one so had to try multiple times until it did it and now this morning I have tried to put the third tape onto my pc (and I have since tried numerous tapes) and now black horizontal lines are appearing on both the display on the camcorder and the version copied on to the pc (when I can get the camcamera to work). I am so upset as the footage is so precious and paid such a lot of money for something which surely shouldn't break after not much use. Please help. Many thanks Charlotte

Hi,

Initially, try a video head cleaner. There are versions that are at the same size of your video tapes but contains a cleaning strip. A cleaning solution is likewise added.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Horizontal equally spaced black bars accross the screen when in playback mode similar to looking through partially opened venetian blinds.


You may need to clean the head on the device. You can purchase head cleaning tapes from most stores that sell the tapes, or goto a specialist camera shop.
Failing that, open the tape slot, tape the tape out, and with a soft cloth see if you can clean the small silver heads very gently.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen


Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

Black lines on playback no playback


hi, if you have stuck the head cleaner in and this has not removed the black lines then the head might either need a thorough clean or may be damaged.

BLACK Lines and having to reset.


i assume that the 'black lines' are 5 bars of dark video spaced equally across the screen. this is a symptom of dirty heads. use a mini DV cleaning tape, and the problem should go away.
