There may be several reasons for this, - the unit may not be pulling the tape through the transport mechanism because of tape binding in the cassette. Or there could be excessive oxides built up on the captstan. If you can, remove old tape and try a new one. In either case, you should get unit cleaned and checked by a qualified tech.

Please reoperate after pressing reset button


When you switch it on the red led will light up but within 10 seconds it will flash and then a message on the screen will come on to tell you to reset then tell you "in service".
This will repeat itself forever to frustrate you no end but I have stumbled onto tricking it into working, ie get the led on without progressing to flash. Try switching it on and as soon the led comes on, switch it off, do this a few times, then leave the switch on and voila it might stay on like it did for me.
Just now I have ran it for an hour, switch it off then after 30 seconds turn it back on and it stays on.
I thick the reset button is all bull. Let me know how it all went or am I all bull for your NV-DS38.

Flashing "DEW" Indicator shutting down the viewcam


I don't know if this will help, but when I leave the camera open with no tape in it for a day or so, "dew" goes away. Now I just store it open without a tape in it and have never had this problem again.

Hope this helps.

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape


ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.

Camera turns off


the red symbol is the erasure prevention slider on the tape. check it's not on or push the slider on and off prevention. this should fix the red symbol, you might have to do it a couple of times before it works. not sure what F14 is can't find it in the manual. try the solution here. if it still turns off after a few seconds i have another way to fix the power.

Won't record or play anymore


You need keep the power plugged in and allow the internal battery to recharge as it may have discharged due to lack of use.
Alternativley the internal battery may need replacing by a qualified engineer. You should know if this is the problem as it usually denoted by a red flashing battery with a line striking through it.
