Sounds like the screen has either failed or the wiring to it has got a dry joint or become disconnected.

Check your connections first. Usually a camera comes with software to allow transfer from camera to computer. If it has worked before, then there is a connection problem now. Windows media player supports many formats of video. Each format type is determined by the file extension, for example .mpg .mts .avi etc. If the camera records in an uncommon format, you may need to load a different CODEC (Compression/decompression program).
See here for all formats that windows media player supports:-

The Panasonic PV-GS35 will let you record digital media to the mini DV cassette if the other video source has a DV input/output connection. Then you use the 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire DV cable, PV-DDC9 . This cable is available from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/LETO-FireWire-Panasonic-Camcorder-PV-DDC9/dp/B00MLQVMSK , and other vendors. The digital camera doesn't have the S-video input needed to record from most other sources.

For information on the digital dubbing feature, see the manual starting on page 42. Panasonic has the manual on the product support page: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/PV-GS35.html . The current link to the manual is ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camcorder/om/pv-gs19_en_om.pdf . See page 13 of the manual for the location of the DV port.

I hope this helps.

.Prg files are database files. They could be associated with an indexing system for that camera. They are not in and of themselves a video file.

The play head did not retack fully to the off position. Drop the player an inch from the floor to jar it into place. Or or open the back side to reach in to move parts or open stuck latch.

Hello, Tariq -

Fixya.com, where you posted your question, does no repairs of any items. It is a website intended for only asking and answering questions on how to go about repairing things. You have only stated that your camera is damaged and not what you think is damaged.

I would direct you to an authorized Panasonic camera repair service in the area where you reside, but I have no idea where that is.

I suggest you use your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc.) and the following search phrase, using quotation marks as shown to identify camera repair businesses where you reside:
"Panasonic camera repair"

You can add you location information to the search phrase, if you wish:
"Panasonic camera repair" "Sandusky, Ohio"
"Panasonic camera repair" "Birmingham, England"
"Panasonic camera repair" "Manila, Philippines"

Best wishes.
