Tape Release Button not working, Can't get tape out!!

I have a Panasonic Palmcorder, Model PV-D209. The tape release button does not respond so I cant get the tape out. Record, VCR and all other functions are working, I just cant get the tape out!! I tried both battery power and electric power, but nothing helps.

How do I fix it ? Thanks!

    Guess what, I fixed my problem by accident. I tried to slide the eject button over and lifting it upwards with my fingernail. It popped off, and while doing so, the tape ejected. Under the button is a white plastic lever. I can use a small screwdriver to move the lever in order to open the door.



    I put the blue button back on again. I see that the problem is the blue lever is not meeting up with the white lever to push it over.



    I'm glad I can get my tapes out, however, now I don't want to leave it exposed to dust with a hole open.



    How can I fix the button so it meets up with the lever properly?

hai, If you are service engineer you can do this problem, Please, check the cassette IN sensing Switch. The place of the Switch is right side of the mechanism, Clean S/w with IPA solution & check. It will be ok or other wise you have replace s/w or mechanism.

Try removing the battery. While holding the eject button, re-insert the battery.

HOW TO FIX THE TRACKING PROBLEM IN MY PANASONIC PALMCORDER iq


If the camcorder has been sitting unused for a while, there is a good possibility that the capacitors on the PCboards have started to leak. A good test of this is to turn your camcorder on, let it heat up, and then smell it (inside where the tape goes is usually the best place). If you smell fish, your caps are leaking. Once this happens, it is recommended that ALL of the caps be replaced and this repair is not cost effective to do. Another sign of bad caps is if the image in your viewfinder rolls, is wavy, or smeared in any way.
If you think that it is not a "bad cap" problem, the mechanism may just need to be cleaned by a professional. If you have a VHS-C head cleaning tape, you can try that for 5 to 10 seconds and see if it helps. www.austintelstarservices.com

I've got the 203 and all i had to do was take the bat. off and give it a couple of good hits on my palm, hitting the bottom of the camera. At sounds odd, but trully works. On the 203 its an electrical issue. Before doing this, be sure to open open the tape case, and remove your memory card and, if you can, the internal bat.

it worked for me.

Good luck.
