Question about Panasonic NV-GS3B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic Nv-GS3 I have a NV-GS3 Camcorder which has been working fine. Just got it out and its giving me a message "Incompatable Tape" when switched on. The tape in the camcorder was fine when I put the camcorder away. I have also tried another tape previously used in the camcorder and this also gives the same error message. Is there a simple fix or do I have to send it away for repair?

F02 error in Panasonic vedio camera


F02 error code means tape slack. If you have a separate deck try winding the tape all the way to the end and then rewind it back to get the tension up. Or if you are able to do it in the camcorder then do it this way.
