Fix Vertical Hold Problem - Pansonic NV-DS60EG


Standard Member

I have an old but still very good Panasonic Camcorder, the problem is the last time I got it out to use it there is a problem with the LCD screen.

The picture is OK when looking through the view finder but I don't know what its like when connected to an external display.

Anyway can anyone point me to a servicing manual and or let me know how / if the vertical hold can be adjusted, is it just a question of tweaking a trim pot?

Many thanks

Hi just in case someone looks at this post for a solution I googled the question and found a few similiar posts that stated that the problem in some Camcorders can be caused by a faulty or loose ribbon cable.

Anyway I dismantled the Camcorder (Just enough to see the video cables) and had a poke around.

I then put the Camcorder back together and hey presto the damm thing worked, must have been slightly loose (not that i'd noticed).
