The camera won't turn on


This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Why does the VCR ejects my tape?

The VHS PlayPak adaptor uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHS-C tape into the adaptor and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink-wrap has been removed from the battery.

Warning PSD NG Panasonic DVX100A

I checked several forums for you and the general suggestion is just live with it. Panasonic will charge you 330$ to clean the lens assembly and update the firmware and the problem will come back in 2 days. Then they will tell you they have to change the whole lens assembly $550. The problem will come back again. Twenty or more people said the best thing to do is just live with it as it does not interfere with the cameras performance in any way. It sounds to me like this problem is engineered into the camera to milk money from you. All of the users that have just ignored the warning are still working fine, They just say it's annoying.One sent it to a shop to see if they could just disable the warning, You can not. After reading every ones exact same problem I can feel comfortable recommending that you simply follow their course and ignore the warning message. Everyone that sent it in was robbed and the problem came back within a month and ignoring it does no damage to the camera or the video it produces. If I were you I would send Panasonic a letter complaining about this issue and tell them what you know about their scheme. Ask them why so many people are having this problem and they can not fix it. This is just another example of bad business practice. I see this more and more each day in all types of products. They figure you paid a lot for Your camera and you will pay a lot to fix it. Maybe if you make enough of a fuss and threaten to post this horror story to tech forums all over the internet they will send you a better camera. I did that with a Compaq Presario laptop I paid 700$ for. I had to send it in for warranty work 3 times in 6 months. When I threatened to post all my communications with them and my horror story HP Quality assurance sent me a 1400$ HP Pavillion fully loaded just to shut me up. HP bought out Compaq. Apparently these mega companies do not want their secrets out so they will pay you off to settle you issue if you ride them with honest complaints about their bad business practices. The last thing they want is people to realize what they are doing. I hope you found this information helpful. As there is no way to actually fix your problem yourself I hope you find this information I gave you valuable enough to rate it fixya for me. If you ride the company the way I instructed you you will get satisfactory results and in most cases better equipment out of them. And I will get the 6 bucks for telling you how to force them to help you. This is the absolute best answer anyone will be able to give you here. Others may try to tell you all crazy ways to disassemble the lens assembly and cleaning contacts. Doing so will ruin your camera that is not even broken and void whatever warranty you may have or your chances of getting them to replace it with better equipment. In any event, Let me know how you make out. If you need more help getting the company to help you you can send me an E-mail to [email protected] and give me your number and all your info and I will ride them for you on your behalf as your qualified technician. I do this for a hobby so I will not charge you anything. I just hate seeing big companies taking advantage of their customers. Hope to hear from you soon,
George

Camera shuts itself off

Since the online reviews of this model date from 2008, it is at least ten years old. Maybe it is just worn out and needs replacing ?

Camera shuts itself off

What is the age of the camera and how well used are the batteries? are you recording from battery or from power cable? The only things you can do are make sure the battery and power is good and make sure the recording media is good. With that in mind if the camera is older than 5 years, they have a battery inside the case that you cannot change. This battery keeps the date and time in memory and when it looses charge, the camera has to be sent in for repairs.
