Camera keeps saying to push the reset button

The camera keeps saying to push the reset button, it doesn't do anything once I do. It appears to reset itself but then goes right back to the same thing? What can I do to get it out of this?

SOURCE: NEED HELP

G'day,

I also have the same problem and after almost buying a replacement I thought I would try one time to get it to go.

What I did was start the cam without a tape in it, let it bring up the little red icon indicating no tape inserted, (it hadn't started flashing "PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON" at this stage) then I inserted my tape. Hey presto, it works although for how long I don't know. I'll immediately start burn my tapes to disc while the going is good.

Hope this helps someone

The means that the powerup self test is not completing successfully. If there is no error indication in the viewfinder, this unit will need to see a Panasonic servicer for repair.

I need help. My Video camera ( model sdr h40 ) is not working right. When I turn it on the screen is very blurry. It's extremely not clear. After a few seconds it says push the reset button. I push it and...


The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Error message "push the reset switch"


The Panasonic manual for this problem is stupid. It says "Pushing reset button MAY help resolve the problem"...
nothing else-no explanation of possible problem.....worthless.....

Displaying "push reset button"


A: try a new video tape

B:
try giving your camcorder a few light taps (or not so light, just don't break it) and then turn it off and then on again

this sometimes helps in my experience but it is not a permanent fix and I suggest buying a new camera as soon as possible

C: Somone said that leaving the camera plugged into AC for 20 minutes or so will fix it, I have tried this myself and it MIGHT have worked (I have used it a few times without any problems but that has happened before

Reset


Here is what I was able to find about your issue with your camera. [PUSH THE RESET SWITCH] is displayed. ? An irregularity in the Camcorder has been automatically detected. Remove the cassette or the card for data protection and then press the [RESET] Button with the protection on the Lens Cap. The Camcorder will be activated. ? An irregularity in the Camcorder has been automatically detected. Remove the cassette or the card for data protection and then press the [RESET] Button. The Camcorder will be activated. ? If you do not press the [RESET] Button, the power to the Camcorder is turned off automatically about 1 minute later. ? Even after you press the [RESET] button, the indication may still appear repeatedly. If so, the Camcorder needs repair. Detach the power connected, and consult the dealer who you purchased the Camcorder from. Do not attempt to repair the appliance by yourself. Here is the location of the reset button: 1 Open the LCD Monitor 2 Undo Grip Belt end and pull Lens Cap Cord downward to loosen Grip Belt. 3 Use projection on the Lens Cap to press the [RESET] Button . If this doesn't work here is the link to the site that I found this information on. http://www.indiana.edu/~libugls/equipment/pdfs/PanasonicPVGS29.pdf It is located on page 78 of the pdf file. Good Luck!!!

Push the reset button


My camera has been doing this too, searched this site not through product but problem and found this solution posted by "margarita" for another camera. Said to try removing/replacing the tape. When I pushed the eject button the tape did not come up, removed the battery for a minute and tried again. This time the tape came up so I removed it and put it back in, it seems to have worked. The reset button is not flashing and it did record and playback when I tried them.
