Try this: Select Camera Menu; Dial down to #60(OTHER FUNCTIONS) Press dial and jog to last item on page 2. (HOUR METER) Now dial up three lines and press the dial. You should now see SELECT LANGUAGE >English >Japanese.

Fever, First off, where did you purchase your camera. Somewhere online? Maybe Best Price Cameras? We did and got Japanese displays. They are gray market cameras. These crooks take the English cameras out of the box and replace them with Japanese. Ours WERE opened with items missing and a recorded tape in one. No faces were shown, but their "Everything we sell is BRAND NEW and FACTORY FRESH" quote is a BIG, MISLEADING LIE. Sorry, FEVER, but you've been screwed like too many of us. Go here http://forums.photographyreview.com/showthread.php?t=10918 to read the REAL reviews, not the reviews that the scam camera shops are operating. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you need more info.

The easiest way it to use a smartphone and the Camera Feature on the Google Translate App. It translates in real time what you are seeing. Look for Settings - Language.

I have Panasonic DIGICAM NV-GS5 in Japanese language I want to change language from Japanese to English ... reply me

There should be a Language change option in the Menu. Our Panasonic Mini DV cam has Language options only for English, Spanish, French. If your camera does not have an English option, you may need to call Panasonic Tech Support for help.

Converting vhs tapes to computer using camcorder

I think it's possible if you change a setting on your camcorder.  Turn your camera on to VCR and then hit the menu button.  Look at 4. AV In/Out Setup and make sure your DV Out is set to ON.  I think this will make it work.  If not, try changing your playback functions.  I think the problem either lies with the fact that the camera is using its RCA connections as outputs instead of inputs, or it's not sending the signal on to the VCR.
Hope this works for you -
