Question about Panasonic AG-DVC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have had a lot of trouble with my Panasonic AG-DVC30 Mini DV camera this past weekend. Every few seconds a message would come up on the screen saying "Auto lock not threaded" and then it would stop recording and a blue screen would come up. I would have to turn the camera off and then on again in order to record. Is it broken or is there a simple solution?
Sounds like the threading mechanism isn't able to completely thread the tape. there may be something obstructing the travel of one of the threading arms that pulls the tape around the head.

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
