Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-D209 Camcorder
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.
U get usb cable and a software cd with ur cam.Install the software and attach ur cam to pc with the help of USB cable and get ur movies copied from cam to pc

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.

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!

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.
