Re: no record or zoom
In your owners manual on page 52 you will find a list of authorized service centers. Give the one in your area and give them the brand name and model number of your camcorder. Tell them you are having a problem with camcorder not functioning in the zoom or record mode of operation. They will have all the service information and will be able to help you with the repair of your camcorder. You can also call Panasonic customer support and give them the same information and ask them if this is a known problem and if they a solution. They will be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with the problem you are having with the camcorder.

VCRs use Channel three or Four to watch the tape. It is better if you use the video out on the VCR to go IN to the TV video In on a modern TV. For record, the VCR cannot see Digital TV. You must connect the Digital TV box or satellite box Video Out to the Video In on the VCR.
I found this solution on one of your old notes (but a different machine). I set up a scheduled record for 11:59 PM to 12:01 AM for the current day, then set up the scheduled record for the next day. The VCR recorded both the initial 2 minute session and the later one which I wanted to record.
If you take the cables that are currently connected to video 1 and connect them instead to video 2, select video 2 as the input from the remote and get the no-signal message, there is a problem with either the switching IC (not likely) or the input jacks (more likely). The problem with the input jack may be as simple as a bad solder connection that can be fixed in 5 minutes. Do the test first. If you get no signal, request service. This should be a simple repair.
