Panasonic PV-GS12 tape door won't close

I was removing a tape from my friend's camcorder, the little tape deck popped up and opened, i took out the tape, but then the camera pulled the deck back down, still open. now it won't close. is there a way to reset the tape deck, or a way to close it manually? again, the little box that holds the tape came out, popped open, went back in open, won't close. any solutions?

perhaps it has to do with the SP and LP settings, I know certain video editing programs won't capture video recored in LP.

This camera uses mini-DV tapes which are widely available online or in camera shops. If I was buying, I would start with Amazon.co.uk

Tape don't pop up


a reset error is not repairable if you do not have exsperience with this. If this unit is showing a reset error there is either a fault with the lens or the tape mech, looking at your fault the mech is faulty and only a qualified panasonic technician is going to be able to repair this.

Open the side door where the video scren is, and it's a tiny little gray button you have to push in with a pencil or pen all the way on top, above the soft skin and multi/p-in-p button!

My Cassette Tape Deck is Jammed Open - Help!


Glad to hear that you got the unit working. One thing you might want to do now that you resolved the jammed problem, to avoid future problems, is with the cassette deck open, look in to the opening and check all the metal parts for any signs of being bent or twisted, even slightly. There is a reason that the door has a spot marked "push door shut here". Pushing it anywhere else will usually bend something. It may be working now but who knows. Usually when you force the cassette mechanisms on the little camcorders you bend something and sooner or later it will come back to haunt you. Now you can open and close it so it would be an easier fix. If you find anything bent you will need to carefully straighten it. Believe me, a little time spent now will save alot of grief later. Perhaps your father-in-law would have the skills to check it and straighten any bent parts. Even if you don't find any problems you will at least have peace of mind knowing that everything is OK. Good luck.
