Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

No picture in "camera" aka record mode

Camera was in the closet for a while, brought it out to use and had it say "CLOCK BATTERY". I then charged as the manual says by directly connecting the camera to the charger, DC cord. Left this way for 4 hours.

Then popped in the battery, set the clock time which was blank.

Now there is no picture when recording. The control information such as battery level (full), zoom level, time, etc. show in the display but the picture from the camera is completely black.

Is there a "reset" button somewhere or a "magic phrase" I should speak over it? Or is it a dead camera?

Thanks for help on this!

how old is the battery? if it's more than 2 or 3 years old, it may not hold a charge. swap a known good battery and see if it works.

SOURCE: Can the battery charger be connected to the camera for power?

best bet to deal with the battery replacement is to download the manual from panasonic and follow their guides, they usually instruct you on how to install the button batt ery at initial start up as this is what holds the date/time in memory when you are charging the main operating battery. go to the following link and enter your specific camcorder info: http://service.us.panasonic.com/operman/

regarding the power supply. You need 6 volt DC. but you need to know the polarity of the line feeding into the camera and match that from your power source, if you have the polarity backwards, you can ruin the camera. You can also cause problems if your external supply has too high of an Amperage rating as an excessive amperage can overheat your camera circuits. verify the amp rating of the camera and verify that the VCR dores not exceed that my more than a few amps.

SOURCE: dropped olympia video camera.screen has went

The same thing happend to my computer when I dropped it. A friend fixed it, but I'm not sure of what he did. I think it is a cable sending information to the screen to tell it what to show that is broken.

If i'm right, the problem isn't so big, but unless you know something about videocameras, don't try it yourself!

SOURCE: Camera suddenly will not record

I had this.
Unscrew the bottom and take off the cover, one of the connections may be loose. Push every cable connection to make sure it's tight. This fixed the problem for me.

SOURCE: Hi, need help with the camera not powering down

Hi,

Once you turn off the camera and remove the batter, does it power on and if you press the off button does it go off ?

Try this

You need to know in which position was camera turned of.
So try turning it on in RECORD OR PLAY position.
It will work then...

Why Fuji Finepix XP20 won't take photos?


Check the settings of the camera. Put the recording mode for stills (photos) to auto, so the setting can't stop the camera from taking a picture. If you are in one of the manual modes, and the system calculates it won't be possible to make a picture (to dark, to light, or out of focus and so on) it won't react when you press the shutter release button.
Please use the manual, so you will be able to solve this every time it happens to you. The manual is still online.

I would hope you have tried removing the battery, charging it and replacing it first already. The next thing I would try is to set the camera to factory default options.

1. Camera won't record photos. Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the camera might not be able to record photos.
Additionally, if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit, it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.)
The battery is the root of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your battery icon for a general idea of

My Z812 keeps telling me I need to reset the date/time every time I turn it on, even if I have just done it. Also drawing batteries very quickly (lithium, camera type)


It may only happen enter date and time if you remove the battery in the camera., If your not removing the batteru out of the camera you should not recieved that message, unless battery is out of charge or no power.

You should use this battery Kodak Li-Ion rechargeable battery KLIC-8000. This is a special battery for Z812 camera,

Note: You must also need to purchase a charger for this type of battery.
I guarantee you it will provide stable longer power for on your camera
