20 Most Recent Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers


the computer might not automatically upload the file. it will detect the hardware, but not necessarily start uploading. if you have xp, try going into movie maker which is in your program list in the start menu. on the left hand side there is a few blue sentences, one is import video, another is import video from device. if you have your camera connected to the computer through firewire and have your camera on the vcr/playback mode, open movie maker and click import video from device, the computer will have already detected your camera, so the first option your given in the next screen should have the make and model of your camera to upload from.

This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

Hi,

Hi,this problem(press reset switch)is associated with a mechanism error.Most likely mechanical.

Sensors on mechanism itself or a cylinder error.Replacement of mech(most likely) or cylinder(drum assembly) will be necessary to resume normal operation on this model.Replacement part cost on either is approx. $140.00 plus labor and alignment.Most any reputable service facility is able to repair,however this may not be cost effective.Total repair cost will be around $250.00,new purchase of mini DV camcorder may be a better choice.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
