Question about Panasonic NV-MX300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Zoom-focus does not work

My zoom and focus on my NV-MX300 died a little while ago and noone can seem to fix it. Tried new zoom motor and motherboard (which Eric's Camera in California ordered from Hong Kong because Panasonic Europe and USA could not get it), but no use. The technicians are mystified. Any ideas? It's been a great camera and I'd hate to toss it in the garbage just like that....

SOURCE: panasonic NV GS 400 mainboard problem

What he probably means is that the IC that "Drives" the "Port' has been damaged or destroyed, a very common problem. Due to the manufacturing method, IE: Surface mount compnentry, there simply aint no "Simple Soldering problem" fix, at all... the actual IC, must be replaced... but this isn't actually possible..(well technicaly it is possible, but real hard to do) so hence the only other "Fix", a board replacement. Although ya DV outlet is kaput... If there is another output? say an A/V out? could you not use that as a work arround?

SOURCE: Required USB Driver for mini dv Panasonic NV gs 15

The Panasonic NV gs 15 can only be used as a webcam with the USB cable.
You need a 1394 firewire / DV cable to transfer the video to your pc.

Auto focus is not working, inside or outside, unless I use the zoom. I have to quickly zoom in and then out and the autofocus seems to wake up. Is there a simple cost-effective fix?

This happens when the internal focus lens is off track or impaired in some way and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

JVC Digital Camera focus

Did it work before? If so then it sounds like the focus motor/screw jack has failed and needs replacing. With some JVCs you can replace the whole lens system and a new one will re-calibrate itself, but I'd have to check on this model.

Focus/zoom issue with Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 digital camera w/ 12x zoom

This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.

Blurred Images/ Photos

Check out the Fiji Tech support team. Depending on the age of the camera there may be a swap out option. Independent repair will not be an economic prop.

It seems that the lense element which mooves while zooming the camera is stucked. normally this happens when the camera suffers a heavy jery, may be by dropping the camera. Resulting into disalingment of the lense assambly. You will need the help of repair shop to solve the problem.
