Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Looking for an expert familiar with the Panasonic SuperCam AG-DP800. I want to restore a few that I have collected. Problem: noisy video output (lines). Defective electrolytic capacitors I presume. Does the problem affect a particular rating of capacitor or all caps? Is only the video board (VEP03801A) affected or should I replace caps on all boards? Would like to find a technician who can replace whatever is affected. Cannot find anyone in my area yet (WA state). Thank you.


Answers :

This type of problem is probably being caused by a faulty electrolytic(s), but you would have to have a scope to pinpoint the source, and take it from there. Your best shot would be to go to Panasonic support, and see what they can do, and how much, etc.

I have a canon xl2 camera which is presently at an event that my company is supplying equipment for. the camera is experiencing intermittent video output to our video switching system (which is new and we have thoroughly gone through with a factory tech and has been eliminated as being part of the problem). We have replaced the bnc cable connecting the camera to the switcher and it should also be noted that we have added an amplifier to the cable run but that has not eliminated the problem. The

I have a sharp video camera model VL-AH30 This is a hi8 unit. When I play back the tapes there is alot of tracking problems that makes some of the tape nearly unatchable. Is this a problem with the mini VCR heads? Will a cleaning help? I can not find a way to adjust tracking like on a regular VCR. I am transfering it onto my computer and would like to find a way to eliminate as much of this tracking as possible. Thanks

Dear Sirs: I have had an AipTek P-DVRcb Digital Camera for several months now and I have been pretty pleased with it. Unfortunately, when I had to replace my old computer with a newer one that runs "Vista", I have started having problems with video playback. Every time I attempt to play one of the videos, I get a message window that tells me that I don't have a "codex". Do you offer a patch that could correct this problem? Thanks!

I have a new Panasonic DMC-FZ38 digital camera and I seem to have a problem capturing video footage to a PC. I can record video on the camera and it plays back on the camera quite satisfactorily.

The LCD on my DMC-TZ5 looks like someone ran the image through one of those turn-your-picture-into-a-cartoon filters. The problem is present in both record and review modes (and menus too), both for still pictures and video. It does not affect the actual pics/video once downloaded to the computer; it's just a problem with the LCD display. It developed this problem after I took it to a repair shop to fix a stuck lens shutter/cover thingy. Before I take it back and accuse them of screwing somet

When we made the movie with another camcorder (a Sony Handycam DCR-TRW260) the same problem was encountered, but when we switched off the image stabilizer on that camcorder, the rolling gray bar failed to appear.
