Question about Panasonic AG-188 Camcorder

Removing the display completely from the screen

Hello!

We use our camera for our school's live news broadcast. How do we get all the display items off teh screen?

It has a blinking rectangle (it's plugged in so I don't see how this can be the battery), and the writing:

X1 Auto-H.S.S. MF

Thanks so much for your help

    Hello.
    I am new to this school, and our camera is displaying the same information. It has to do with shutter speed, but I can not remove it from the screen once it is set. I've rotated through all the possible "display" settings, but must be missing something.
    Any thoughts?
    I can not find a manual on line anywhere.
    Thanks.

Look for a Display button, or through the menus.
I believe the MF means Maual Focus.

Can I stream live video from Firewire interface?


Veodia’s recently released streaming-video software is easy to use. Really easy. We’re talking plug-and-play easy. Plug your DV camera into your computer and put it in record mode. Log into Veodia.com and hit “new broadcast.” And you’re live. Instantly. And when you’re done, you hit stop and the video you’ve just streamed is available on demand through your favorite RSS feeder. Instantly. And it works.

When you hit “start broadcast” Veodia takes about 5 seconds while “detecting bandwidth.” The end product is a 320 x 240 live video feed streaming right out of your Firewire DV camera or webcam. This video is embeddable anywhere, meaning you can have this live feed be part of your blog and your viewers don’t need to be registered Veodia members. And each broadcast comes built in with a chatroom for your viewers to interact with you, the webstar, live.

Thanks for your reply
Out of frustration I was sitting looking at the camera and thought to try all buttons and see what hapenned. On the righthand side of the camera in the bottom left position is a button marked display. Normally during live display mode, you can either switch the screen on or of by pressing this button (to conserve the batteries). If the camera is powered off and then on again, the screen automatically is in live display screen active mode again. For some reason my display remained off. When I depressed this button once after switching the camera on - voyla! The display worked again in live viewing mode. I do not know whether the screen is supposed to stay in the off mode when powered down in live display off mode even when it is switched off and then back on again or not, but the previous times I did, it was automatically on when powered up again.
So, before repairing your camera, please make sure that it is actually broken - refrain from making a fool of yourself like I did.
Thanks once again for your support

Can't see when recorded.


On LCD screen do you see display on camera mode or its just blanck?
If display is present and camera picture is not seen than the electronic problem is occured in camera,may be dry or loose connection which is common ,in this situation just opening camera and cleaning connectors and assemble back will solve the proble.Or camera DC-DC converter faulty inside.

No image in the viewfinder or LCD screen when try to record...


I have recently had what I think is the same problem. I wrote to a supplier in the UK to see if they could diagnose it from my description. My camera is still not fixed as yet (as I have not sent it off yet for fixing), however there initial analysis was that it is 'Drive PCB' problem and a replacement part would cost £38 + labour + tax. I am not sure what the Drive PCB is, but I have the same blank/grey screen when trying to record but playback is OK. My camera is also about 2 years old.
