This problem is in the owners manual. It says that if you press reset and the problem keeps recurring you must have it serviced. Per the panasonic website if you purchased the camcorder greater than 1 year ago the flat fee for repair is about $265. Buy a new camcorder, thats the most cost effective solution.

Most of these I've seen require the mini dv serviced or replaced. I have seen the switch block that the reset button is a part of fail as well. I clean and service these camcorders starting as $40. Larry's Electronics 916-362-8708 email@example.com
I found the fix. It's so easy.
Take out the battery
When it says hit the reset button, hit the reset button.
Turn the camera to off
Take out the battery
Wait 2 minutes
Put the battery back in.
Turn on the camera. It won't say reset anymore.
The same happens from time to time with my panasonic NV-GS11 GC video camera and I have no idea what is causing it. But what I normally do is just turn it of wait 10 seconds and turn it on again. If it stil comes on try removing the tape and see if it is faulty.
This error indicates a cassette mechanism malfunction. It happens usually when you don't operate the camecorder for long time leaving the cassette inside and the battery attached. Solution: 1. Open the cassette housing and nock GENTLY with your finger tip on the cassette cabinet (particularly on the position marked "push") until the cassette is released. 2. Push on the right place (marked "push") to close and then close the cassette housing 3. Operate the cassette (play, fast forward/backward). Repeat the above steps several times until the problem is gone. Advise: Remove the battery and cassette when leaving the camecorder for long period without being operated, and store the camcorder in a dust/humidity protected place.
Hope this can help.
