    I seem to have the same problem with my Panasonic PV-DV203D.

    I looked through the manual and found nothing related.

    My power light will be ok initially when turned on, but it will only
    do an action (FF, rec, play) for like 1 second before stopping and
    switching nearly off and blinking the red LED power light very slowly.
    I can turn it off and unplug to make it go away, but I only get
    another second out of it.

    No warnings, no nothing but crappy behavior.

    I tried with a recharded battery and plugged directly into the power
    cord, same behavior.

    I tried with different tapes just to see, same behavior.

    I looked through and searched the manual, nothing.

    Any thoughts? Am I screwed out of a $500 (when I bought it)
    camcorder?

    I tried to contact Panasonic but nothing yet... Still waiting. Will
    call Monday. And I am just a week past my one year warranty.
