Hi,

Can you provide me the details of your location, so that I can find a local repair shop near your place?

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.

You have to have the 7.9V DC cord plugged in at the same time as the usb. the camera should be on when u plug it into the computer

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.

Hi Kris. you may have a dead battery and need to replace it, or your charger could be bad, or your battery contacts in the camera may be dirty and need to be cleaned.

Remove the battery and clean the contacts of the battery and inside the battery slot with the eraser end of a common pencil.

have the battery tested at any radioshack store, a free service.

Definitely the cassette being stuck is related to the battery issue. joe

Ok, these units have a bad problem, with the Power Supply, inside, Sometimes it is mimicked by a bad battery, the only way to check, first is to replace it, If this doesn't fix it then, it must be taken in for repair. There are NO user serviceable parts inside. A delicate instrument, such as this MUST be serviced at a Panasonic recommended Service Agent. Please get the camera looked at, and ask for a "Quote" before any repair is undertaken. This way at the least, you can get an idea, as to repair or replace. often these days, at least in mys repair shop, things can cost as much to repair as a new one with a warranty.

For your SD card, you have to use the USB port to mini-USB port cable that came with the camera, or a card reader. Connect it to the computer, and turn the camera on. Windows XP and Windows 7 will detect it as a hard drive, and give you the options for transferring the pictures to your pc. You also have a firewall cable that you can use with the software that came with the camera. In case you need more information, you can download the manual that will tell you how here:

there is only one kind of firewire cable available.
go to an electronics store and ask for a firewire cable (ieee 1394)
you also need a firewire port on your pc/laptop. if you don' t have one then you should buy a firewire pci card
