Topic: Problems

Ok well my girlfriend is being a bitch... .....haha just kidding. im have camera problems. I have a Panisonic MiniDV camera. Now this happened over the weekend, I was watchign some old tapes and all of a sudden the screen went blue. It wouldnt record and I coudl watch the videos. Im thinking its dusty or sumthing but I dunno hwo to clean it. Then monday I finally got it to work dont ask em how cuz i dunno and then today I filmed something and tried to get it on my cpu and it wouldnt work. ANyone have any idea whats the problem????? Thanks

Re: Problems

It seems that your camera isn't recognizing tapes.  Try cleaning the video head.  That may help.

Re: Problems

I think the bg problem is that you actually have a Panazonic MiniDV camea....  lol

Re: Problems

That'd be where I start.  You can prolly pick one up at Wal*mart, Circuit City, or wherever you bought the camera.

And Panasonic has pretty good equipment.  If I had to have a camera by an electronics company rather than a camera company, Panasonic would be it. 

Let us know how it goes!

What's wrong with that?  Panasonic is a very good brand and miniDV is the best possible format for an independent filmmaker.  It's also the cheapest.

The real question is: Is the camera 3CCD?  If not, you need to get on that.

Re: Problems

i say, buy urself a nice exensive digital camcorder, and then throw it against a wall untill its smashed into little pieces. lol jk, jk. no seriously its probably just the heads neeing to be cleaned, and like mirthy said, its not very hard to do. but if you do that and it dosnt work, take it to some actual camera people and see if they can fix the problem, but thats just my advice.
