Question about Panasonic PV-DV402 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
It was functioning properly but now, there is no sound on playback on camcorder, on TV, or on computer. Even tapes that did have sound no longer have sound when using camcorder. Could it be one of the hundred functions on menu that is in the wrong position or a switch or a fix available for internal mechanisms? Thx for your help!
That is the sad truth about Vista, manufacturers are either slow at providing support for older equipement or ignoring them altogether. Panasonic has not upgraded the software for that camera since 2003. You best solution would be to create a second partition on your computer and install Windows XP in a dual boot configuration, but that would cause problems as your should do it the other way around (install XP then Vista). Or you could buy a cheap XP computer (a used one or value one). Or you could upgrade to a newer camera.
Although you may luck out downloading software for a newer camera from panasonic, maybe this driver might work: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/pub/Panasonic/Drivers/capture/ComMass.zip
Does the camera have firewire? Did you try connecting it that was?

You need 3 cables Yellow, (Video) + Red & White, (Audio L&R Stereo) Or Mini-DIN, for SVHS Video cable, this is ONLY for Video, Audio, is still Red & White. Or Component, where you have 3 Video Sockets, cables, Green, Red, Blue, All video, all color to color, both ends, and again Red & White for Audio. Sometimes there is FireWire, or HDMI you need a cable and the PC MUST also be equipped, You need software and drivers for FireWire, of HDMI..
