I have a nv-gs40 which was laid up for a while o.k now tape will not load and shows TO SERVICE in view finder.

-try a power cycle
*remove battery and disconnect from power cord
*i would also suggest to check the tapes if they're clean
*try to clean the tape head inside the tape deck(tape head: the one that reads the tape)
-try using a soft and dry Q-tip to clean the metal parts inside the tape deck(dont use or apply any liquid solutions. just a plain soft dry Q-tip.

Hi Have problem with Panasonic Model NV-GS40. Will not take tape. Message on screen 'PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON'. Have tried this and then message on screen 'TO SERVICE'. Any ideas what...

these type of camcorder you have to use them more often to keep the gear working right and clean them ,for this type of work you would need a tweezer a q-tip with a tiny piece of foam rubber tied to the end of q-tip and a few drops of fine oil use the tweezer to pick lint maybe hair and use the q-tip for cleaning, see if the camcorder has a rubber to run gears if it does that might be the problem the rubber might be too might need to replace the rubber, one more thing if you have a hard time finding the rubber for cam,
than use a used a bike tube, what you do is with scissor you cut across the bike tube thin rubber bands.and try not to get any oil on rubber. GOOD LUKE NO BIG DEAL.

CARD LOCK - cannot clear on Panasonic NV-GS40

Try gently cleaning out the card slot on the camera, in case dust or debris is interfering with the electronic connections.

I have exactly the same problem - but very occasionally, it returns to normal, I can take a few pictures then up comes the message 'CARD LOCKED' . I change for different cards and the problem is always the same. Nobody seems to have a solution and Panasonic do not answer any questions about their defective products. I am very disappointed having bought this camera. All my previous cameras were Sony with no problems whatsoever experienced.
