Question about Panasonic PV-GS2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Panasonic NV GS 15 deck jammed

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.

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 !!!

The same happens from time to time with my panasonic NV-GS11 GC video camera and I have no idea what is causing it. But what I normally do is just turn it of wait 10 seconds and turn it on again. If it stil comes on try removing the tape and see if it is faulty.

first of all you should have your cd driver came with camcorder and as far as i know your driver isnt compatible with vista so better try to use windows xp. install the driver, plug your camcorder using your usb. upload your videos from your camcorder to your pc using ULEAD MOVIE MAKER. edit it and save it with any various types of videos. finish!

Tape jam


First try to press the power button and the eject button at the same time. If that dosent work its advised to take it to a repair person as taking apart a unit like this can cause more problems then you have now. Lets just hope that its not to late and that the camcorder dosent have those pana caps that always goes bad. Good Luck
