...and try this first...:
You need to know in which position was camera turned of.
So try turning it on in RECORD OR PLAY position.
It will work then...

NV-MD9000 , NV-GS11, NV-GS60 and all other camcorders have problem of "Push the reset button"(flashed on LCD after 2-3 months . This problem is due to some company defect in soldering in Main board. Get the cam checked by a good electronics tech guy instead of taking to panasonic service centre coz in service centre they will simply ask you to change the board. all the best my friend sreejith

Rejecting tapes


I had the same problem with my SC-D363. My screen would flash "D" and tell me to eject the tape.

Here is the SOLUTION:
1) Very Gently unscrew (4 screws)and remove the front casing portion of the camcorder, be sure not to strip the screws.
2) Directly underneath the lens there is crosslike metal support that extends from the tape
compartment chassis. The green circuit board should rest on top of it as shown below instead of
underneath it, as it was when it was assembled.
And Voila! Camera works like when it first came out of the box.

Not responding to any discs, already recorded on or blank! Tries to access disc for about 5 secs then comes up disc error. unable to finalize any discs already recorded on.


Well you simply are one among 1000's with the same problems, one of the main reasons most of us will never buy a camera that puts films on DVD.
I can tell you that 99% of the time if yu get this problem you wont have captured any pics on the DVD anyway, so do not worry about not playing a disk, they simply are not reliable to record on them, use a good TAPE camera next time ok?

It keeps flashing c:31:22 whats wrong


This Sony code in your camera is telling you the video heads are dirty, buy or put a cleaning tape in the camera and press play for around 30 seconds, if problem is not resolved use tape cleaner for 30 more sec, that is all it is I assure you.

1. completely turn of phone unplug charger.
2. take and put battery back in phone and plug charger.
3. hold hit camera button and power buton. phone will come on if the update was washed it will come straight on. if not you will see the blue LED dont worry yet. just keep holding for 15 sec.
4. while phone blue LED is still on hit and hold (drum Role) menu and track ball for 15 sec.
5. now unplug charger and take out battery. wait 10 sec
6. now put battery back in and leave charger off. and turn on. unless you was in middle of update and hardware failed this WILL bring your G1 back up and running.

I tried every method I could find from people posting on the web, but the method that worked for me is this.

1. Eject the tape and close the tape holder.
2. Turn the camera off and remove the battery.
3. Put the battery back in. Leave the camera off.
4. Open the tape holder.
5. Slide the tape in, but as you press the holder in to accept the tape, keep your finger pressing in on the holder, being careful not to slow the tape holder from moving downward.
6. Turn the camera on.
7. If it doesn't work the first time, press more firmly to help the tape holder accept the tape.

That's it. This method seems to work for me and lets me use the camera for a long while. If the camera is sitting unused for more than a few hours, I have to do it again. And each time I insert a tape, I make sure that I keep pressing as the tape holder lowers the tape.

My camera will not turn off !!!!!


WOW: All three Solutions Work Fine.
I Removed the 6 small bolts and took the camera apart.
lifted the tape and cleaned the contacts u;nder the tape with alcohol, let them dry then replaced the tape, lineing up the contacts on the tape with the ones on the body of the camera. Put the camera back together and put back the 6 bolts, inserted the batteries and presto: the camera worked. Thanks for the info , it really worked. Wes Reed
