The Amazing Flying DVX100

Anyway, after the horrific noise of expensive stuff falling onto a hard surface, the camera-dropper and I stood there in stunned silence. I managed to keep my profane remarks to a single "Holy poop!" (somewhat unusual for me) and then we inspected the damage.
Well, it still functions perfectly and even though the lens cap fell off when it hit the ground, the only cosmetic damage was a tiny crack on the side of the matte box. Wow.
I must say that I had lost a little respect for this camera due to its perpetually turning focus ring and seemingly flimsy design, but I gotta give it to Panasonic- I mean, it fell off a 3-foot high counter and flew through the air and then landed on tiled floor...AND it still works!
So, what have you done with YOUR DVX lately?

I suspect that's not the problem, as a tape lube issue would cause head clogging - and I'm fairly sure that miniDV uses the same heads for both record and playback.
