Panasonic NV-DS65 won't eject a tape

Our Panasonic NV-DS65 camcorder's tape eject button no longer works and we can't open the thing up no matter what. Is there a manual override button somewhere or a way to open it up? The whole recorder seems to be cactus and we no longer use it but we're unsure if there's a tape stuck in there or not! Please help.

It sounds that what's happened is your idler wheel is slipping or even your main drive belt.
When you loaded the tape it was taken by tape guides around the video drum. When you pressed eject the tape guides returned to their proper places but the tape stayedin a loop around the mechanism because the take up spool had no drive to pull the tape back into the cassette. When you've tried to pull the cassette out of the camera that loop of tape has snagged on part of the mechanism and that's what is stopping the cassette from being removed. I'm afraid the tape would be damaged at that spot so you may as well simply snip it with a pair of long bladed scissors and the cassette will pull straight out.
What is then required is either the drive belt changed or the idler wheel assembly changed. Either way a service center will be required unless yourself or a friend is able to buy the parts (not expensive) and do the work required.

Good luck

Can I use a 8gig SDHC card in my panasonic nv-ds65 ?


The NV-DS65 uses SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camcorder. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Another window will open and you will need to click the "I Accept" block and then click Download.

For ease of installation when the Download window opens, select Save and save it to your Desktop.
