Question about Panasonic Palmcorder VDR-M50 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-43D cannot get door open

When I push the eject for the tape to come out the door does not open. I have tried everything. Could the door be broke or the tape jammed inside? This camera is from around 1993 and came with its own carrying case, tripod and 12 tapes. I have only used 4 tapes so far. I took it to the Panama Canal to tape the locks and that is when it stopped working. First it had dew flashing so I waited for that to stop and then it said end and stopped. I then proceed to push the eject button to take the tape out and it would not open. This is a vhs tape that goes into a special case to be put in a vhs machine and watch on tv.

Hi there.
Sometimes a gentle slap with the palm of your hand with the door facing towards the ground does the trick, make sure you power it off then on press eject while you gently slap it.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
