Question about Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No power; can't eject cassette

The PV-GS35 just quit working suddenly while filming, and I can't get it to power on with battery or cord. I really want to get my recorded cassette out of the camera without damaging the tape at least. Anyone know how? Thanks, Pete

Model PV-D4732. How can I get cassette to eject?

When you press EJECT, the tape has to be withdrawn into the cassette and the shutter closed before the cradle can be lifted to clear the spindles and allow the cassette to be shoved out. You will have to disconnect power and remove the cover to expose the complex inner workings and I suspect you will find a tangle of tape or a broken tape. Some careful work with appropriate tools will allow the tape to be stuffed back into the cassette or (worst case) cut out. You can apply power again and you may be able to observe the sequence of ejection operations before reinstalling the cover.

SD cards go up to 2GB in size. SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB.

The PV-GS35 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. Your 1GB and 2GB cards are SD cards. Your new 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them.

Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture

Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck

Push the reset button

This error indicates a cassette mechanism malfunction.
It happens usually when you don't operate the camecorder for long time
leaving the cassette inside and the battery attached.
1. Open the cassette housing and nock GENTLY with your finger tip
on the cassette cabinet (particularly on the position marked "push") until
the cassette is released.
2. Push on the right place (marked "push") to close and then close the
cassette housing
3. Operate the cassette (play, fast forward/backward).
Repeat the above steps several times until the problem is gone.
Advise: Remove the battery and cassette when leaving the camecorder
for long period without being operated, and store the camcorder in a
dust/humidity protected place.
Hope this can help.
