Re: further info on eye pc view
The recording mechanism itself was damaged in the fall and that is why it can't record new ones and also sounds like the reason the eye piece is not working the only option you have for a high tech piece of equipment like this is to have it serviced I can help you locate local repair with your zip code(or city) or you can locate the closest authorized service center here: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?PRODTYPE=1,24,26,66,9,70,5,72 If you need any further assistance please let me know.

If camcorder shows old recorded tapes picture with correct colors in LCD but does not show live view in camera mode to record new movie then its ccd imager chip failure.
And if camcoder shows live view and old recorded tapes in its eye piece view finder but does not show any thing in LCD the its problem of broekn/ cracked flexible wire between lcd board and main board of camcorder.
Let me know your finding with bit detail to provide you solution/ helpful info.
How long have you owned the unit? How long has it been doing this? Do all other playback functions work just not record? Once I have more information I will be happy to assist you further so please don't reject my solution until we have solved your issue. Thanks, Lee
This happens sometime when the drop down menu in the recording program is not set correctly for the dvd recorder it may be set for another recording device or the dvd player. If this in not the case try removelng the dvd recorder in device manager and leting it reinstall
I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....
It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines) The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on) One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings. There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick. I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.
First, go to Panasonics Website Download all Firmware and software updates. Install in your recorder. The Website will tell you how to make a Disc to do this., Then Clean the inside of your unit of Dust etc., Clean Laser eye with rubbing alcohol use q-Tips. If your unit does not read the Firmware updates do clean as described first.
this unit has an optical-eye, not recording heads. opening the drawer then unplugging unit will expose the eye. never look into the eye when unit has power. this x-ray can and will burn your owh eyes lens&retina. good luck. clean with 90% isopropyl alcohol and q-tip. mch
Ok, discovered a few things. You guys are absolutely right. I looked in the side compartment for the DVD, there is nothing in there to do the recording, so yes....it is for looks. The "lens" or what you think is the lens in fact is just the viewing tube to sight the picture. The actual lens is the little dot below the tube. Cam is very light sensitive and will pixelate badly if you try to zoom in on anything. However, I did figure out that you have to have the knob on the side set to USB in order to pull pics off camera. I agree with the above post.....it is a piece of junk!!!!
