First guess is the camera has dirty heads. Suggestion is to run a head cleaner in your video camera. Regardless of the instructions on the head cleaner, I usually run the head-cleaner tape on "Play" for about 10 to 15 seconds, and then on "Record" another 10 to 15 seconds. Wait for 10 minutes before loading your playback tape. Try playing your tape again.
Also, check to be sure the tape is loaded properly and that the hatch closes securely and properly. A hastily loaded tape or an ill-fitting closure could cause the play function to stop. If this does not solve the issue, it may be something in the play switch or in the playback mechanism that requires repair services. If the problem continues, I would recommend calling the Panasonic Company and speak with Tech support or Video Camera Repair. They may be able to tell you and estimate of what it would cost for the repair.
It sounds that what's happened is your idler wheel is slipping or even your main drive belt.
When you loaded the tape it was taken by tape guides around the video drum. When you pressed eject the tape guides returned to their proper places but the tape stayedin a loop around the mechanism because the take up spool had no drive to pull the tape back into the cassette. When you've tried to pull the cassette out of the camera that loop of tape has snagged on part of the mechanism and that's what is stopping the cassette from being removed. I'm afraid the tape would be damaged at that spot so you may as well simply snip it with a pair of long bladed scissors and the cassette will pull straight out.
What is then required is either the drive belt changed or the idler wheel assembly changed. Either way a service center will be required unless yourself or a friend is able to buy the parts (not expensive) and do the work required.
Install a capture card (Firewire card) in PCI slot.
Install a video editing software in PC.
Capture video in PC and edit as per requirement.
Go to 'share' or 'make movie' option to render the edited video.
Make DVD with that rendered file.

problem resolved by ....
1... switching power off, removing battery and the after reconnecting battery power on + pressing the reset button on camera. This process done a couple of times.
2.. cleaner tape then loaded successfully.... ran this for a minute.
3.. camera now loading tapes as required.
This problem of yours could be caused by dampness or moisture in the camera. Try to keep the camera in a dry area or dry the camera where the mini tape is with a hairdryer at a sloe warm speed.
