Problem with Panasonic Camcorder NV-DS28

I haven't operated my Camcorder NV-DS28 since atleast one year and when I tried using I was facing problem.

When Camcorder is switched on I am getting message on screen "Please Re-Operate After pushing Reset button" and light next to camera mode is continuously blinking. After pushing reset button I got message "To Service" on screen. Seems like it needs servicing, I am not sure.

Would appreciate if you can advice or suggest solution to this problem.

From speaking to a repair centre this is a very common problem with Panasonic camcorders.
I got the impression it was a panasonic problem with a connector that needed either cleaning or replacing. 
There are 2 fixes, one is cheap quick and temporary.
The other involves sending the camcorder away to be professionally repaired, it should cost the minimum fee, which was £50 in 2007.  

As for the cheap version, it involved turning the camcorder off and hitting it against a copy of the yellow pages and turning on again.  This worked for long enough to record my 2nd daughters birth.

I hate to say this but I think your camcorder is trying to tell you something...
Like whe a Dog goes to his bowl and barks and you look down and see no food in it...

Hi, I need drivers for my panasonic nv-gs150 video camcorder to transfer videos onto my new windows 7 aio pc.

There is an update for Windows 7. Load the files to your computer and execute them from there. Don't try and download just the drivers, you need the complete software package which also install drivers via a Package Installer.

I cant eject my Panasonic NV-GS55 Mini DV Digital video cassette

Try ejecting cassette whilst powered from AC Adaptor. Secondly, try operating Eject from powered off mode. If operation LED starts flashing after any of these attempts, the mechanism is probably jammed or has become mis-timed. Unfortunately this requires professional intervention to avoid further damage to your equipment.
I hope this information is of assistance!

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

Hi, I purchsed Panasonic NV GS-70 in 2004 and facing the same problem in transferring videos to computer. I tried for firewire cable option as well, but the camcorder does not have a firewire port.

Can anyone suggest what kind of firewire cable to be used for it.

It is more than likely a belt. Probably a square type belt. They typically have a life span of a decade or so but when they start to go they go quick. Letting them sit around unused for periods will actually make them more prone to die. A service manual is a best bet - try google searching or eBay - but you can track down the parts via Sears Parts direct. There are several parts sourced on line but I have great luck with Sears. Enter the make and model and see what it lists. Common things like belts for vcr, cassette decks, vid cameras, were used in many different things over time so they actually have stuff in stock still. Also check YouTube for how-to videos, as most of these repairs are common and similar process for different machines.
