Question about Panasonic Cameras

Open Question

Panasonic camcorder NV-DS55B. When I put the tape in the compartment and try and close it it makes a different noise to normal and will not pull the tape in. It then ejects it. There is some text on the viewfinder which says F05 (is this a fault code).

SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

There is a fix for this which was posted for either the ZR 200 or 400. They call it the "Fonzie" fix. Just hit the camcorder with your fist on the side where the tape goes in (with the door closed). Hit it lightly once, try inserting the tape. Repeat this process with increasing force each time until this works.

Surprisingly, this worked for me. Obviously, there must be something loose for this type of solution to work. I actually had it working once, then it acted up again. I tried the same solution and it's working again. No problems for several days now.

Cylinder error (F05) usally caused by poor/oxidised contacts on cylinder drive fpc cable to pcb, sometimes caused by seized cylinder or drive.
The cylinder is the round thing that the tape wraps around that has the heads to record to tape, just in case you didn't know.

SOURCE: Panasonic VCR has F06 code

You appear to have a K Mech model. F06 is the code for the mechanism locking after unload. The cause being something to do with the loading motor or the way the carriage is aligned.

Exactly the same problem as everyone else. There's bound to be someone who can offer advice on what to do. The camera obviously recognises the fault as F05, but where can you reference the remedy to this F05 code? It's not in the manual as far as I can see

I have a Panasonic NV-GS75 and have recorded on it. On trying to play back it has black lines across the view and is stilted. What do I do to rectify this?


You would need to use the head cleaning tape which came with the camcorder to fix this. The heads are dirty however if they were dirty during recording, try playing back another recording and if it works, the tape might be dirty. i wouldn't recommend using that tape.

Panasonic NV-GS10B mini DV camcorder. Cassette will not load into camcorder. Mechanism closes OK without cassette.


Seems to have been a random fault. Now OK, but for how long? This camcorder has given nothing but trouble. Any further nonesense and it will be destroyed.

Copy from camera to computer


Do you have a video/tuner card that can receive a video input? With ** av in, or firewire on your computer, you can't without purchasing additional hardware.
