    video camera fault -need an opinion on what is causing it

    Hi, first post ,
    i have a Panasonic Wv-f15e , i sold it and the buyer got back to me saying its not working, now it was 100% working went sent, and to take nothing away from the buyer he sounds like a decent guy and returned it well packed so i have to assume something happened to it during delivery
    i have a small video clip of the fault so you can maybe diagnose a cause
    are there any video engineeers in this forum that may be able to give me some cause to the nature of this problem
    here is the link to the clip

    Without looking in detail, that may be a sync issue, a dirty head, or a NTSC capture of PAL or a PAL capture of NTSC. If a raw captured clip were available, more detail may be seen and more may be said.

    hello tonsofpcs, thank you for your reply , how do you mean as in 'raw capture'?
    the capture was pal to pal, iam in the UK and do not have any access to any ntsc material or hardware, i hope that helps a little
    here is a image of the camera ,its not as a camcorder is, its a camera and portable recoder or attach the camera to other devices



    if you can think of anything i can do to make it easier for you to have an educated guess , please let me know
    cheers

    How does it look in the viewfinder? When recorded and played back from the deck? Connected directly to a tv/monitor?

    By "raw clip", I mean the captured file, not a compressed/behind flash playback of it. The raw clip would allow someone to see close to exactly what you see and allow him/her to step frame-by-frame and field-by-field to see what is going on.

    hi again,
    its exactly the same when recorded and played back from the deck
    Is there anyway to prove its a sync issue? and if so , would a 'bump' during shipping cause a sync issue?
    many thanks

    no its the same in the viewfinder and the monitor and when recorded

    It is different in the viewfinder than on a monitor? That sounds like an issue outside of the 'camera' portion of the camera and more into the logic/encoding portion, possibly even on the output board.
