NV-GS15 MINI DV CASSETTE COMPARTMENT DOOR JAMMED

Hi,
I was trying to solve another problem(Firewire in Vista Ultimate 64 bit and XP SP2, not recognising NV-GS15 in my laptop) and While the cassette compartment door open (I think) I turned OFF and then ON the camera. When I turned it ON, the compartment slid down while it is open.

The compartment door (where you have the little "PUSH" label) is open but compartment itself(Which has the lable "BEWARE OF JAMMING FINGERS") now had gone down to usual Compartment closed position, so I cannot
1. get the compartment "UP" since the plastic door with the EJECT button is open and stuck, which prevents opening using that button.
2. close the compartment door while compartment is lowered in to the camera.

Any help is much appreciated.

Best Regards

Prasad

    Same happened to me. Any solutions?

    Exactly the same. I tried to slip a tape in. It pushed the tape back up. I took the tape out and it then retracted down with the compartment still open. If there was some way of triggering the door opening operation it might come up??

SOURCE: Jammed compartment door

I am pleased to say that my good lady wife, of 49 years standing, 'fixed' the problem ~ not once, but twice. Pat has always managed to solve such problems, and this time she was fiddling inside the compartment near the camera 'on/off' switch and, Hey Presto!, the camera now works satisfactorily. I attribute her prowess in solving small mechanical problems to a woman's intuition. I just wish I could be more precise on her success.

Service manual for Panasonic Handycam NV GS15


I fixed 2 cameras with same problem "Push Reset Switch"
Removed small foreign plastic object which was jamming mechanism without stripping.
In both cases a very tiny piece of one of the broken plastic 'catch' of the door was the problem.
Turn unit upside down and give it a good shake-up and it will drop off & problem solved.
Hope this helps.

How to get my PC recognize the Panasonic NV-GS15


Solution A: make sure you are using the correct cable for what you are doing (eg USB for webcam and importing photos and Firewire for transferring video footage

most desktops have firewire plug in them but laptops don't usually

to get a firewire plug in a laptop you need a PCMCIA to Firewire Cardbus (ask your local retail store for one or buy one on ebay etc.)

after that put the cardbus in your PCMCIA slot and restart

then go to Windows Movie Maker and press "capture from video device"


hope this helps!
