Question about Panasonic NV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When you turn on the camera displaying "push reset button" after pushing the buton after few second again it will display same.
I had the same problem, I took it to panasnic and had to replace the tape carriage mechanism, fixed the problem but was EXPENSIVE (but less than a new camera so decided to do it).
Technician said lack of use causes the carriage to seize up (I barely use my camera) he said store with tape out of camera, and once a week play / record for a few minutes to keep the carriage in good working order.

A: try a new video tape
try giving your camcorder a few light taps (or not so light, just don't break it) and then turn it off and then on again
this sometimes helps in my experience but it is not a permanent fix and I suggest buying a new camera as soon as possible
C: Somone said that leaving the camera plugged into AC for 20 minutes or so will fix it, I have tried this myself and it MIGHT have worked (I have used it a few times without any problems but that has happened before

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
