|Fantastic picture quality and my favourite purchase this year. great price $2060 with 5yr waranty and HDMI cable, picture and slim design. Why would you bother with an LCD worth a $1000 more when you can have this beauty. I paid $1700 at JB HIFI.|

TROUBLESHOOTING HINTS FOR SD/MultiMediaCard Error (Models: PV-DV203/PV-DV203-K)
The following ERROR No. will be displayed on the Camcorder LCD Monitor or EVF Monitor when an Error occurred.
ERROR No. Error Description The initial processing of IC401 and IC6001 for SD/Multi Media Card was failed. (Case 1) May be caused by the interruption, such as POWER OFF or the removal of the SD/Multi Media Card, during accessing to the system area of the memory address. Possible solution The SD/Multi Media Card is defective. Use a new SD/Multi Media Card. When a defect still goes on, it may be caused by bad contact between SD/Multi Media Card and IC401 (DSC ASIC) and IC6001 (Microcontroller.) Check following items and repair or replace if necessary. Replace Rear Unit (Ref No. 13) Replace IC401 (DSC ASIC) Replace IC6001 (Microcontroller) Repair contact (solder) of signal lines between IC401 and B1 connector (Pin 1,2,3,5,47,48) on the Main C.B.A. The SD/Multi Media Card is defective. Use a new SD/Multi Media Card.
The initial processing of IC401 and IC403 for SD/Multi Media Card was failed. (Case 2) May be caused by the interruption, such as POWER OFF or the removal of the SD/Multi Media Card, during accessing to the system area of the memory address. 1. Communication Error (SD/Multi Media Card <--> Camcorder) 2. Card is formatted with the format which is not correponding. (ex. FAT32, NTFS)
Install a new SD/Multi Media Card in the Camcorder. Does the camcorder work correctly? OK NG May be caused by IC401 (DSC ASIC) and IC6001 (Microcontroller) malfunction. Caused by SD/Multi Media Card error. Replace IC401 and Format the original SD/Multi IC6001 on the Main C.B.A. Media Card with FAT format using a PC. If still NG, the original SD/ Multi Media Card is defective. Use a new one. Install a new SD/Multi Media Card in the Camcorder. Does the camcorder work correctly? OK NG May be caused by IC401 (DSC ASIC) and IC6001 (Microcontroller) malfunction. Caused by SD/Multi Media Replace IC401 and Card error. IC6001 on the Main C.B.A. Format the original SD/Multi Media Card. If still NG, the original SD/ Multi Media Card is defective. Use a new one.
Communication Error (SD/Multi Media Card <--> Camcorder)
The power is shut off while the SD/Multi Media Card is accessing. Then, the accessing is stopped. Error other than above
The SD/Multi Media Card may be defective. Use a new SD/Multi Media Card. May be caused by IC401 (DSC ASIC) and IC6001 (Microcontroller) malfunction. Replace IC401 and IC6001 on the Main C.B.A.
Note: When the SD Holder Unit connector is disconnected from FP6701 connector on the Rear Unit, "NO CARD" appears on-screen. Connect the SD Holder Unit connector firmly.
TROUBLESHOOTING FOR SD/MultiMediaCard Error PV-DV203/PV-DV203-K
Palmcorder PV-DV203 is a 3 in 1 camcorder that features the benefits of a digital camcorder, digital still camera and web cam camera. The PV-DV203 is fully PC compatible, with i.LINK IEEE 13941 and USB computer interfaces. This enables video and still images to be easily downloaded to a desktop or laptop computer, where they can be saved, edited, digitally manipulated or added to a Web site or e-mailed. It also incorporates a removable SD Memory card for quick and secure storage and transference of digital still images. Using the MPEG-4 Movie Messenger system, video captured by the PV-DV203 can also be downloaded and emailed to friends and family. The PV-DV203 can also serve as a Web camera for video conferencing with friends and relatives, or even for simple Internet-based surveillance when you're away from home. As a digital still camera the PV-DV203 can also record still pictures with exceptional clarity. Panasonic's Progressive PhotoShot captures image data and temporarily stores it in two separate field memories. The images in the two memories are then combined with no time lag, resulting in pictures with 1.5 times the resolution of standard-recorded stills. In addition to this wealth of features, the PV-DV203 also features a color viewfinder, Dual Digital Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) that compensates for camcorder jitter, both during recording and playback of previously recorded video, and a digital LED light for low power consumption and safety.
