Panasonic nv-sv120 power shut down

Noticed my panasonic video (nv-sv120) player was showing all its display characters on the units small screen one day. I attempted to put in a video but it would not take it in. Then it suddenly shut down all power and it has not worked since. Could this just be a power pack failiure in the unit and where could i source a new one if so. Please also note that the top of the video player is completely covered with other electrical devices (stereo, speaker! and digi box) which i wonder wether cased the unit to fail. Plug fuse is ok.

    I had the same problem with a NV-SV120 Video recorder that was 13 months old and had only ever been used about half a dozen times (probably about 20 hours of recording in total) Panasonic did not want to know because it was out of its gaurantee so feel a bit cheesed off about them. I had similar prolems with a DMR E55 purchased from them as well. Looks like this one is on it's way to the scrap heap. Your fix for the DMR E55 worked perfectly - thanks.

    Checked the fuse and this was sound and power appears to be circulating around the board. However, to the R/H front side of the board (near the eject button there was discolouration as if the board was getting hot.

    Had the same fault on a NV-SV120, replaced the blown capacitor (12V 1000uF) and hey ho perfect again, excellent picture on this machine. Very good for playing those cheap videos all the charity shops are selling.

    I have the same problem but I can't find any 1000 uF capacitor. I have 2x680 uF instead that look strange. But I can't figure out how to access the PCB for capacitor replacement.

There cannot be any reason pin pointed for a Electronics Equipment failure. But from your brief description, it seems that there has been an Electrical surge, which has probably blown the Fuse in the Power supply of the VCR. The various extra equipments placed on the machine are not in any way responsible. But, it is not adviseable to place these additional equipment on top of the machine. Remove them ASAP!

No memory card for the Panasonic NV-GS10 camcorder...

The NV-GS10 uses MiniDV tapes. You should be able to buy these at just about any camera, department, or electronics store.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen

Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.

Screen does not display

I had the same problem. more than likely your connector cable between the camera and the display has become brittle over time and is beginning to break. as you open the screen the small wires inside the cable are separating. mine went from 30 deg view to 90 deg no display as yours is now, then 30 deg fuzzy display (cant make out the picture like a VHS when it needs heads cleaned) then the cable gave in and snapped. all the way through. Simply not a lasting camera. I got quotes and it was about $200 to fix. for that price these days u will pick up a better camera anyway. Good luck

Panasonic NV-SJ205 Changing Rf ?

ok. This is a really easy one.
All you have to do is hold down the menu button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds, If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds. If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the actual vcr unit for 15 seconds. The first method should work for Panasonic's fine.
This will then display your current rf output.
You can then change the output by using the up and down arrows or the channel up and down button on your remote or the vcr unit.
Press menu button to save or the same button you used to bring up the rf opposition eg power button on remote or the unit.

all the best. Top tech

I have a NV-FJ620 video - CVC is showing on the display screen and the video tape is automatically ejecting itself when I put it in.

One possible explanation is a faulty mode switch (this is a multi contact rotary swith located under the mechanical deck) which needs cleaning probably not a job for the DIY enthusiast
