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.

I had the same problem but without the needing cleaning message on my Pana PvGs12, weird as it sounded, I stopped it but left it on and gave it a whack on my palm and then tired playing it again and it fixed it. But I have heard it may also need professional head repair and that it may be out of alignment too? Try switching from doing it in the camera mode and or in the playback mode. I'd also try the reset button.

SOURCE: PV-GS9 mini dv playback problem

I covered several threads that recommended buying a Mini DV cleaner and running it up to 4 times. They also suggested to change to change your video tape as it may have been the cause of the original problem.

These solutions may have worked for many but not me. My camera was becoming progressively worse. It went to blue bars and no sound to no picture at all...just blue. After using a cleaner 4 times I became frustrated to the point I was going to buy a new camera.

However, with the camera still playing, I did the typical guy thing and rolled up my fist and gave it a good hit along side of it. Remarkably it went back to just the blue bars. I hit it again and it went back to a perfect picture. I'm not saying this will work for you and hitting it too hard could make things worse but I was at a point where I didn't care any more and took a chance that paid off.

Check rec tab keeps popping up when i turn on my camera and it prevents my from recording any thing. its a Panasonic 3ccd pv-gs500 how do i fix this.


Ok, I've had this issue for some time now ... and just figured it out, hopefully your issue will be the same.

If you pop out the tape you are trying to record to. Look at the top, there is a small tab on one of the corners that will allow or prevent recording on the tape depending on which way it is positioned. If you slide it open the tape is locked for recording, if you close it, you can record. Try that and see if the problem goes away.....

I have a Panasonic PV-GS14 and it ALWAYS says 'Push Reset Button'


I had the same problem. In desperation, I picked up my trusty can of compressed air and aimed a few shots into the recorder/playback mechanism. Worked like charm.

Error message "push the reset switch"


The Panasonic manual for this problem is stupid. It says "Pushing reset button MAY help resolve the problem"...
nothing else-no explanation of possible problem.....worthless.....

Cannot play tape.


Sometimes that happens to me too. What I do is just push play, then fast forward, and normally if you watch it, the picture starts to come back. Just keep fast forwarding until you can see all of the picture, and you should be fine.

Blue bars across video


I have the same problem with my PV-GS14. You have to find the last spot you recorded in, pause it, then switch to record, and just record something for a couple of seconds. Switch back to playback, and it should be fine. Neonlaundry, I read your other posts, and it seems we both have the same problems. If you find a solution, please post it. Thnks.
