Question about Panasonic NV-GS17 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The tape holder retracted into the body of the camera without it first being pushed down. As such, the tape holder prevents closure of the camcorder. How do I get the tape holder to come out?
Remove the battery and use the charger - press eject button repeatedly , while plugging charger in ( if mechanism is out of alignment , will start to eject but reload immediately ) ;
