Question about Panasonic PV-GS300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Malfunctioning One-Touch Navigation & Joystick Control

I have rarely used this camcorder, and now I have taken a couple short video recordings, and I can not play them back. When I turn the joystick control to play back, it remains on record mode. Then it switches to playback for a few seconds, but the joystick does not consistently activate any of its functions. Then it switches back to tape record mode and remains there until I turn the power off and back on. Then there is another brief period in playback mode before it turns back to record mode again. The same problems occur when I switch to other operating modes. Everything clicks back to tape record mode, and the joystick acts erratically.

    Here is the download page for the GS3000, there is no firmware available. It is also possible that the touch panel is faulty, and that can be the cause for the camera doing funny.

    If the camera is under guaranty it will be fixed for free.
    If your warranty is expired call Panasonic and ask if they sell warranty extension
    Call Pana here By phone: 1-800-211-PANA (7262)

Fast tape playback for samsung vp-l770 can't watch at normal speed on camcorder?


Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD

Hi there,
During playback, use the joystick to select the tab corresponding to the type of recording you want to play back movies and photos and where they are recorded as well. Whether by the built in memory or a memory card.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
