Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7 Digital Camera ?

No live video output on PC via composite video socket.

\015 Hello,The Panasonic DMC FS7 camera, came with a cable to supposedly be able to connect to the PC, via the composite, analog video socket.It just doesn't seem to work at all and all I get is a brief magenta flash in the video display window when trying to select any video mode.There is nothing wrong with the PC or the video socket as I have an old JVC digital video camera and that does work when connected to the composite video socket.I would be gratefful for ny advice on how to get the Panasonic camera working via the composite video socket.Thanks.\015

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.
