Re: tape jam

First try to press the power button and the eject button at the same time. If that dosent work its advised to take it to a repair person as taking apart a unit like this can cause more problems then you have now. Lets just hope that its not to late and that the camcorder dosent have those pana caps that always goes bad. Good Luck

When i switch on the videocamera the power led starts to flash and the system does not work neither in VCR mode, neither in Camera mode.

The tapes mechanical path is jammed. The mechanical section is trying to reset in the "Home" position when you turn it on, but it can't because it's stuck.

The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette

Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

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.

Service manual for Panasonic Handycam NV GS15

I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.

Tape rack stayed open

A similar thing happened to me - I took it to panasonic service centre to fix and unbelievably the problem was that the HAND STRAP was quite tight (I have small hands and set it snug) and prevented the door from openeing just another milimetre more, and thus caused the carriage to 'jam'. Loosening the hand strap and opening the door allowed the tape carriage to move properly again. This was a great relief (although I still had to replace the carriage mechanism a few months later.....due to reset button message)
