Question about Panasonic PV-GS2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Panasonic NV GS 15 and just tried to change the tapes on it. I took the one out and put the one I wanted inside - and because I was in a rush I'm not sure what happened. I think the camcorder took the tape down inside without me having time to push the "Push" button and get the tape secured in that "box". When the tape made its way down, and it stopped lowering, the tape was popped out a bit because it wasn't taken correctly inside the camcorder. So now the tape deck is pushed out and won't budge - and the whole side of the camera that opens for the tape is also stuck open.
Yes i had the same problem ...
1.Put the cassette as far as it allows... and move the cassette left and right slightly twisting , and you will activate the mechanism
2.SOON the mechanism gets fully out immediately!!!! remove the battery
3.CLEAN contacts (I'm looking right now on the internet to find where the hell sensors-contacts are)
4.PREY that it works :-)

I had the same problem.
Here is what solves it for me:
1. I put the program dial on recording.
2. switch on power.
3. Open the cover to eject cassette - nothing happened.
4. pushed the "push" button (on top rear) of the mechanism
although this is used for inserting a new tape
I pushed lightly several times while playing with camcorder angle in my hand.
Eventually the mechanism switched and the cassette was ejected.
5. with the mechanism open I took out the battery.
6. I cleaned the inside and bottom contacts and mechanism with a small brush and by blowing some air with my mouse.
7. connect battery, turn on, insert new cassette. All is back to normal !!!
8. Good luck !!!
