    Hi
    This is my first post as this is my first camcorder so a complete newbie I
    am!
    I have bought a Panasonic NVGS50 from a friend. Suddenly it will not record
    to film. If I play it back using WinXP native video software all it shows is
    the 1st frame running jerkily for about 2 seconds and then nothing.
    Oddly it records OK to SD card in MPEG4.

    thanks for looking

    Sounds like you might be using USB and not firewire to transfer from
    camcorder to PC.

    Without being connected to the PC, does it play back correctly when viewed
    on the camera's screen?

    when I press the record button the"RECORD" comes up on the screen but the
    red record light doesnt come on. No, it will not play back on the camcorder.

    Some "friend". I suspect it is your "friend" you should be talking to
    :)

    Does the tape mechanism make the usual whirry noises?

    when "recording" there is a humming noise from the camcorder.

    Have you tried recording onto a new, unused tape?

    OK Wally I'll try and get a new tape. Why would that make a difference?

    The one that's in it might be knackered.
