The problem of your camera is the mechanical timing

    You may want to try pressing the reset button which can be found left of the eject on the side. I have occasionally sufferred this problem and get round it by keeping the reset button pressed for 10 seconds. Try popping a tape into the camera and do some recording, this might help?

I think that code might mean that the mechanism is getting stuck as it tries to unload the tape. Look around for signs of damage and examine the Loading Motor.

Charging Panasonic NV-DS38


Yes that is correct.

You have to use a separate charger as the "DC in" socket is on the camera body underneath the battery.

NEED HELP


G'day,

I also have the same problem and after almost buying a replacement I thought I would try one time to get it to go.

What I did was start the cam without a tape in it, let it bring up the little red icon indicating no tape inserted, (it hadn't started flashing "PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON" at this stage) then I inserted my tape. Hey presto, it works although for how long I don't know. I'll immediately start burn my tapes to disc while the going is good.

Hope this helps someone
