Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue arises when the Camcorder is not operated for a long time.

Gently knock on the push button simultaneously opening the cassette holder and insert the cassette. Now push on the right side and gently push the holder back in position and press play, fast forward and backward one by one. The Camcorder will now accept the cassette. If still the issue persists, then repeat the above steps until the issue is resolved. It is recommended that always store the camcorder in a dust and humidity free area and always remove the battery and cassette when not in use.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

How do I fix the tape holder system on my camcorder? The door won't lock, and the cassette won't get inside the compartment.


hi,
is it close without a cassette ? if so the reel sensor in the cassette compartment may be faulty. if the head drum not rotates the cassette drive will not work correctly, if so please loosen the head drum with a plastic rod or some tools like that. do not put your finger in hence sometimes will jam your finger. remember don"t touch the scanning chip of the head.

When trying to play a tape the tape shows lines through it. Anyone know how to fix this?


You may need a MiniDV head cleaner tape. Read the instructions on the tape carefully and good luck.

The tapes In my Panasonic PV-GS14 are stuck and won't run


you cannot move the spindles/cogs in a mini dv tape without pressing down a small lever on the rear of the cassette.
the lever is in the lower right, move the lever, then move the ribbon protector to the open position, then spin the cogs, the tape should be free.
if not, then you have a jamm inside the cassette, you can open these casettes by removing 4 small screws. ( this is a very fiddly job & you may ruin the casette, if you dont know how )

I have a Panasonic PV-GS14 and it ALWAYS says 'Push Reset Button'


I had the same problem. In desperation, I picked up my trusty can of compressed air and aimed a few shots into the recorder/playback mechanism. Worked like charm.

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.
Solution:
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.
