as said somewhere else on here, take all the screws out of lighter part of the bottom of the camera, you will then see all the flat cables, push them all in and move left to right slighty. put the battery back on and see if it works. if it doesn't just do it again. did this to mine just now and it works fine again.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry 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.

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring images from the Camera to the computer. Unfortunately, the Camcorder does not have the USB interface to connect it to your new computer. However, it has the DV OUTPUT. I understand that your computer does not have the DV input to transfer the videos. In that case, you may purchase a DV capture card to resolve the issue.

The DV capture card is also known as firewire/1394/i.LINK capture card. The DV Capture card doesn't cost much. Please click hear to view few DV capture cards.
Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394/DV/direwire).

IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.

NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.
  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.

  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.
NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.
  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to ON/Playback mode.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know for clarifications.

First guess is the camera has dirty heads. Suggestion is to run a head cleaner in your video camera. Regardless of the instructions on the head cleaner, I usually run the head-cleaner tape on "Play" for about 10 to 15 seconds, and then on "Record" another 10 to 15 seconds. Wait for 10 minutes before loading your playback tape. Try playing your tape again.

Also, check to be sure the tape is loaded properly and that the hatch closes securely and properly. A hastily loaded tape or an ill-fitting closure could cause the play function to stop.

If this does not solve the issue, it may be something in the play switch or in the playback mechanism that requires repair services. If the problem continues, I would recommend calling the Panasonic Company and speak with Tech support or Video Camera Repair. They may be able to tell you and estimate of what it would cost for the repair.

The camera uses a 4 pin connection and Macsw use either 6 or 9 pin connection.
Sounds like you need a 4 to 9 pin cable.

The tape can be removed safely but it will require disassembling the camera and powering the tape mechanism externally. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

Eject the tape and try it with another one.

The red tape light usually means that the tape is jamed.

Good Luck!
