It could be an easy fix. Is this control on the screen or the back of the camcorder?

    You might want to take it into a camera shop and see if its an easy fix. Best Buy also fixes them as well.

Once the VCR is turned on, it turns itself off.


If there is a mechanism fault on the VCR then the VCR will shut itself down. It sounds like the mechanism might be jammed, it's trying to move to the right position, when power is applied but can't so it stops. One thing that might be wrong is the mode switch might be faulty. This will cause all sorts of thing to happen, including putting on the timer record light even when none has been set.

Panasonic PV-7400 VHS VCR seems to be stuck in Memory Rewind Off mode. I power on, it attempts to rewind (though there is no tape in there now) for about 20 seconds, then powers off. I've pulled


Most of these problems are caused by a faulty mode switch. If the mode switch has gone off of it's true position, then the electronics might well think it's in rewind mode even in the off position. Sometimes it's just the switch that is faulty, but sometimes damage to the mechanism has thrown off the switch.

Purchased used Panasonic PV-DV203D without charger. I decided to try a AC/DC transformer that put out the required ~7.5v. The connector was not quite the right size but it powered up when held in the right...


More than likely, the inline power fuse opened with the reversed voltage applied. This will require opening the camera, this is no easy task and should be left to a qualified technician.

Panasonic PV-8400 Remote sensor not working?


This is indeed a faulty IR sensor. If it's just the sensor, swap with your good one to check. From memory they are plug in - a little device behing d the smoked translucent facia (display panel). I have come across this several times with Panasonic VCRs. Check whether the remote works at night time with all fluorescent lights in the room switched off. If so, the IR filter circuitry is faulty. Same solution - replace IR sensor on VCR.

This is actually a problem with the ribbon cable. When the tape is put in and the tape door is pushed shut it jars the internal ribbon cable. Years ago I found this tip online & it fixed it!

"Ok, here goes, I had the exact same problem on my pos Panasonic pv-dv203d. After many times of taking it apart and many frustrating calls to Panasonic, I've finally figured it out, I hope it helps on your cameras.

Remove the bottom plate from the Camera (four screws, plus one near the LCD screen).

Pop off the bottom plate of the camera

Look at the ribbon cables carefully, and make sure they are all snug in the plugs. The tape transport mechanism may move them out of place."

Every now and then our will start to act up & hubby unscrews the bottom of the camcorder (Panasonic PV-DV203D), gently maks sure the ribbon cables are in place, replaces the bottom plate & it's worked for us every time. i hope this helps!
