Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Needs head cleaning
Posted on Oct 14, 2009
What u need at the minimum is an addon card for downloading(refer to the manual for the exact No. it is something like IEEE1395 or so) Then connect the cam to this thro' the cable.
If u use windows xp u have a movie maker. u can use that s/w. Else try to get pinnacle studio or studio 8 to dump and edit etc.
all the best.

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.
