Question about Panasonic Proline AG-DVC7 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Most common problem with the DVC7s is dirty connections on the flex cables to the mechanism. Both the cable for the reel motors and the cable to the video head may need cleaned. About 90 percent of the problems I see with this camera are resolved by cleaning and re-seating the connectors on these cables.

The deck is having loading issues or the load motor is trying to reset the mechanism to its default position (stop mode). This issue has been caused by connection problems that occur between the main DV board and the interface circuit board which has the lens drive components on it. This is a multiconnector and care should be taken if you attempt to repair it yourself. Please check the deck for something jamming the load mechanism before attempting this repair. Good Luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
