Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I own a panasonic palmcoder pv-dv52 and just today discovered that the power light blinks and refuses to play tapes. I have read the other posts concerning the same matter along with the possible solutions posted (taking off the cover and then replacing it, without touching anything inside). Have you any solutions other than this, or will this suffice?
Call panasonic if there are that many posts maybe it is a recall issue and they should know about it.

I was having the same problem. here's the solution that worked for me - should do it for you as long as your camera stays on long enough. 1. Take out the tape - mine stayed on longer (without blinking) when the tape was not in. 2. press the menu button (near the viewfinder) 3. Use he wheel on top next to the viewfinderto scroll through the choices 4. Choose "display setup" by pushing the wheel in 5. Choose "C. Rest" by pushing the wheel in 6. Turn camera off 7. Next time you turn camera on you should be able to view tapes and record. hope that helps!

So I totally had the exact same problem, tape jam, then the blinking power light. I took the case off ( was about 8 or 9 screws). Took a look at all the pretty ribbons inside. Put the lid back on...and guess what...it works!!! Must be some kind of internal reset maybe? who knows...saved me from buying a new one though.

This is actually a problem with the ribbon cable. When the tape is put in and the tape door is pushed shut it jars the internal ribbon cable. Years ago I found this tip online & it fixed it!
"Ok, here goes, I had the exact same problem on my pos Panasonic pv-dv203d. After many times of taking it apart and many frustrating calls to Panasonic, I've finally figured it out, I hope it helps on your cameras.
Remove the bottom plate from the Camera (four screws, plus one near the LCD screen).
Pop off the bottom plate of the camera
Look at the ribbon cables carefully, and make sure they are all snug in the plugs. The tape transport mechanism may move them out of place."
Every now and then our will start to act up & hubby unscrews the bottom of the camcorder (Panasonic PV-DV203D), gently maks sure the ribbon cables are in place, replaces the bottom plate & it's worked for us every time. i hope this helps!
