Hi,

My DVX100A reads "processing" in the viewfinder and I cant stop it so I can record.
I have tried turning on/off, resetting all the scene files, but I can't stop the processing and I cant get it off auto (the green A remains on)

It seems that when it is in this mode, I cant change any of the preset scene files either...

I have a shoot tomorrow and am starting to panic.

Would appreciate any help.

I have tried turning on/off...


I assume that when you turned it off/on you also removed the battery and let it sit for a couple of minutes?

There is a reset button on the inside of the flip out LCD display next to the speaker. You will need a sharp pen or paper clip.

Good luck!

Sounds like its time to call the service reps... and start looking for an alternative camera for your shoot.

Have spoken to panasonic here in london and it's looking like a 4-5 hundred pound repair (just out of warranty too)

It seems its a computer chip problem in the camera's 'motherboard'...

will let you know outcome. <_<
