Outer Display Failed. Panasonic PV-L454D

The side display wasn't working so I started to look for a short, I found the ribbon that connects the camera to the display. The ribbon looked like it had been crunched sometime when a tape had been put in. I disconnected the ribbon and sure enough there was a cut that looked like it was through about two of the wires in the ribbon. Does anyone know where I can get this repaired?

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder...

The most likely problem is a cracked ribbon cable that goes between the camera and the display. The cable needs to be replaced. Typical cost for this is around $40 or so plus labor. I would not suggest that you attempt this repair yourself as opening up these units is not easy without experience. Also, there are cables that can be damaged if opened incorrectly.

I don't see any display in my Panasonic PV-GS250 mini DV.. is it a hardware problem?

Did you solve this? Also, could you be more specific? No video on either the LCD or in the viewfinder? Both when trying to record and when playing back a tape?

Panasonic PV-GX31 DV Camcorder - Need Help!!

I can't find any reference to a PV-GX31 model, BUT if your camcorder is a PV-GS31 MiniDV model, then you need special software for it to show up on your computer screen. Panasonic supply the software to show and edit still shots (through your USB cable). But if you want to show and edit movies, then you need a firewire cable, a firewire connection on your computer to connect it to, and most importantly some editing software. PCs are pretty slack in this area, so you should use a mac!

Panasonic Triple Play Model PV-DM2799

Since it works then fails it sound like a simple cold solder joint. All TV's can have this problem and it is a simple one, Solder will heat up and cool down at different temperatures, this will cause a small ring fracture at the connection, simply re soldering this will fix your problem.

Panasonic PV-DV103D

This is actually a problem with the ribbon cable. When the tape is put in and the tape door is pushed shut it jars the internal ribbon cable. Years ago I found this tip online & it fixed it!

"Ok, here goes, I had the exact same problem on my pos Panasonic pv-dv203d. After many times of taking it apart and many frustrating calls to Panasonic, I've finally figured it out, I hope it helps on your cameras.

Remove the bottom plate from the Camera (four screws, plus one near the LCD screen).

Pop off the bottom plate of the camera

Look at the ribbon cables carefully, and make sure they are all snug in the plugs. The tape transport mechanism may move them out of place."

Every now and then our will start to act up & hubby unscrews the bottom of the camcorder (Panasonic PV-DV203D), gently maks sure the ribbon cables are in place, replaces the bottom plate & it's worked for us every time. i hope this helps!
