Colour problem when recording with Panasonic NV-MX500

I'm currently trying to get 2 Panasonic NV-MX500 camcorders to work but they're both showing everything in blue (both on the LCD and through the viewfinder) when recording. When this footage is played back it's also blue, but older footage recorded before this problem is still in perfect colour. I've tried changing all the colour settings but to no avail. I can't find anything on this in the user manuals. Have I got the settings wrong or does something need to be repaired? Thanks Tim

    My viewfinder went blue then black. I notice that in Singapore Panasonic recognises a known fault with this model and replaces the ccd free. I am not sure whether this is the case in the UK

It's the 3 CCD sensors. VERY expensive repair. Should you be interested, I have for sale my nv-x500: had the same problems and had ALL 3 ccd sensors replaced with ne ones and recalibrated by Panasonic. Never used since, as the camera fuse on the main PCB got broken soon after. The 3 ccds are brand NEW, I sell the camera as for parts for 100 euros with 2 batteries like new, battery charger and all original accessories and manuals, Cheers

Hi, I recently had he same problem, you need to have the unit repaired, it is a small but extremely expensive part that has broken. If my recollection serves me right, it's the colour sensor. There are three that combine the colours to give natural colour. My repairer stated that vibration caused the problems to my camera. Good luck.

I have a panasonic handycam. It shows an error which says Check Record Tab on startup. Because of this error i cannot use the handycam. Please suggest any solutions


The record tab is usually on the tape itself and is usually red in colour.
If you slide the tab to the open position and then reinsert the tape it should allow you to record.

It sounds like the sensor is going bad. Here is the manual for the NV-DS 60, which is very similar to yours. You may need to take it to a repair shop. Good luck.
