I have the Panasonic NV-DS65 Camera.
Encountered a problem with it when i brought it home the other day from filming to upload onto the computer.
When i turn it on in video or camera mode it i cannot use any fuctions at all. It appears as though a key-lock has been accidentally turned on??? I cannot find a keylock button anywhere??? Is there a press and hold function on one of the other buttons that applies this keylock??? just a thought.
I cannot use any of the play/fforward/rewind/still etc functions, no menu control, no response from the remote control.
In video mode all that appears is a black screen with the battery/time features displayed on it.
In camera mode i can see the camera capture image appearing on the lcd screen but pressing record does nothing.
I have checked such basic things as:
Running from power supply
Another thing is the light that indicates whether the power is on or not comes on fully as normal when the camera is turned on but then after a few seconds it emits 2 short flashes approx every 3 seconds. And then the power turns off after idleing for a few minutes. Any idea why this happens?
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
