Screen display on "PC ACCESSING" on my Panasonic NV-GS15 digital video camera

I bought this digital video camera couple of years ago and I didn't use it for last one year. Now when I switched it on, it only display "PC ACCESSING" and a white memory card sign below it with "PC" written in black in it in the middle. It does not do anything else. Even if change the mode to video camera, still camera, video playback, picture viewing or PC mode, it only displays what I descibed above. Battery is charged full and I cannot see any other obvious defects.

SOURCE: Playback problem on Panasonic NV-GS15

It is probably a dirty head. One camera i had i had to clean it much more often that i wanted to and certainly before any important shoot.

Here is a tip though. Always use the same make of tape (and code). If you do change your tape (or code) then clean the heads before you put in the different tape. this is all to do with "dry or wet" lubrication used on different tapes. i do not know enough about that to comment, but the tip comes form a very good source.

Some people run the whole tape through on record (with the lens hood on) before they use it. I do not think it will help for this problem, but you can try.

I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to get my PC recognize the Panasonic NV-GS15

Solution A: make sure you are using the correct cable for what you are doing (eg USB for webcam and importing photos and Firewire for transferring video footage

most desktops have firewire plug in them but laptops don't usually

to get a firewire plug in a laptop you need a PCMCIA to Firewire Cardbus (ask your local retail store for one or buy one on ebay etc.)

after that put the cardbus in your PCMCIA slot and restart

then go to Windows Movie Maker and press "capture from video device"


hope this helps!

On my Samsung Digimax S800, when I put the memory card in, it says to check sd card. What do I do about it?


When the card worked before, check if you did not switch the lock switch down. And check all contacts on the card and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny.
When you recently bought a new card you could have bough a SDHC card and these won't work in your S800.
The S800 only accepts MMC and SD cards, The SDHC and SDXC cards won't work.
A few years ago you still could buy 4 Gbyte SD cards. Now even most 1 Gbyte and 2 Gbyte cards are already SDHC. SDHC was introduced at least 7 or 8 years ago, so all new devices accept SDHC. The SDXC was introduced at least 4 years ago, so in a couple of years, you perhaps only can buy these cards?

I have the same problem with a Canon Powershot s20. Bought approx 5 years ago...


Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

Code error 00-00-00 30-00-28


If the lens got stuck, you have a problem. It can be caused by many things. A broken sprocket, a broken gear, just a little dent in the lens barrel, dried out grease and many other things. Even a defective motor or just a bad contact or a broken connection can be the cause. Non of them can be repaired by yourself. Sometimes, tapping the camera on the palm of your hand, could solve the problem (temporarily), but don't bump it to hard, or you could damage it beyond repair. Tap it with the lens barrel down ward, asif you want to tap it out. But only in a few occasions it really would work. If the battery has enough power, to switch the camera on, pulling it through a setup and displaying the error message, the battery should not be the cause. Getting out the battery and replacing it after a few moments, could reset the error, so i tries again to switch on normal. But if the error keeps coming back, I think it is wise to start saving for a new camera. Most camera's on the market now, perform better and will cost a fraction of what you paid a couple of years ago.

Black screen, so cant turn the back light on


Couple of years ago I had the same problem. Panasonic service replaced me the LCD panel of it. After several months it has been dropped again, same failure again. I could not believe that the LCD went wrong again, so disassembled and noticed that the ribbon cable of the LCD had a contact failure. Could fix it myself. There were a couple of DIY videos on youtube...

I bought an Olympus FE-310 two years ago. First year it worked well but after the second year the images that I captured were not as good as before. Recently the pictures that I captured becoming worst....


The display being hazy or blurred can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the pictures are seen to be good, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

I am using this camera from last 3 years. It was working fine. Suddenly, a problem occurred. Now whenever I select the Auto mode, it is set to video option instead of still image. I have formatted...


I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.

Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?

Camera doesnt work


Sorry talhahs, creative has not written Vista compatible driver software for you're PC-Cam 350 camera. Hence you're camera will not function with any version of Vista.
There are few SD readers currently that are compatible with Vista. Click on this link to see one type.

A card reader that will help you in transferring pictures from you’re camera to you’re PC while using Vista.
Win XP, unlike Vista will still run program software even if it has not passed MS's compatability.

Good Luck!

Is there a driver for D-Link Ver.2.10 DSB-C310 webcam on Vista?


Hey xanthia2313,
According to the manufacturer this webcam is not compatible with Vista. You can try searching for a driver that would make it work using the update driver option.

Sincerely,
Allan
