Question about Panasonic NV-GS200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Red Screen Hi I have a Panasonic Camcorder, Model No. NV-GS200 which has recently developed a fault. The fault is intermittent and appears in the following way: Mostly the picture appears fine, however on occasions, and this can happen anytime in the middle of filming, the viewfinder and/or the LCD screen will turn red but will still retain an image. Upon playback this 'redness' remains on the film at the point that it happened during recording. Any ideas please! Many thanks Jason Stagg

Since this is being recorded it is not a problem with the monitor or viewfinder. I believe that it is a problem with the imaging chip or the circuitry immediately after the image block. It actually sounds like a bad solder joint. If you are very good with tools and soldering, have magnifying glasses and a steady hand, you should be able to repair this. If you are not familiar with the repair of camcorders (and there are many tiny pieces to keep track of) there is probably little you can do to solve this problem. If you go to this website http://www.videotech.com for the price of shipping you can get a free estimate or you can get an estimate online at http://www.camcorderrepair.com I would think that the cost to repair this should be reasonable. Good luck.

My nv gs200 camcorder not suport any sd card. this problem is comes in few days ago.

That's correct.
Older cameras cannot support the newer SDHC cards.
You camera is most likely limited to a 4 gig card.
Check your camera manaul for specifics.

I own a Panasonic NV-GS200. It seems that the thin cable connecting the screen to the body is broken. infact the screen is no longer working. Can you kindly suggest a place where i can buy this part...

These very thin delicate cables are a major problem, yes you can get it repaired, but your looking at maybe more than the camera cost new these days, sorry.

When camcorder is turned on the screen shows red or yellow screen

I have the same problem of picture distortion when recording on my PV-GS200 camcorder. It's due to a faulty CCD block, which you can read about on various websites. I can play back pre-CCD failure tapes without a problem. Panasonic recalled quite a few GS200 camcorders with specific serial numbers in the US and Canada, and replaced the faulty 3-CCD chip free of charge. I just discovered this tonight and intend to ring Panasonic tomorrow, as the camcorder - bought new - lasted only two years before the CCD fault became apparent. Obviously, the camcorder was not of merchantable quality.
