Question about Panasonic NV-GS50 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camera is not operational. I don't know if the problem is the camera, battery or something else. Right now, most important for me is getting the casette out of it. How can I do it manually?
Thanks in advance.
SOURCE: cassette stuck
I have the same problem eject cassette stuck on my brothers camera he gave it to me to bring home to try and fix for him how-ever not before his son tried to force it and damaged some of the casing that holds the cassette. I straighten it all out and then found that a very small spring at the back of the camera had come off which was stopping it from ejecting. Once I lifted this spring and hooked it back on that it now ejects no worries at all..

Pete Check your Battery Contacts and see if they are Corroded or dirty,plus if there is a Memory batt pull it then keep both batt off for 30 mins Charge the one in your Charger if your charger is eqipped with refresh,Enable it but first Clean contacts with Pencil eraser ttech Hope that helps ttech

The "remove cassette" problem on Canon DV cameras is a general fault error that can be induced by many varied problems from faulty dew sensors to jammed mechanisms. These mechanisms are small and delicate and it does not take much to stop them working. If the head drum is starting the next thing that should happen is the capstan spins which in turn drives the take-up spools when the cassette loads. Tape tension problems (other than a broken tape) would not be detected until after the capstan is running. With the battery removed and the cassette door open, CAREFULLY attempt to rotate the capstan spindle. I use a small rubber insulating sleeve stretched over a small screwdriver. If this does not solve the problem then other possibilities are that the printed ribbon cable from the cassette mechanism to the camera needs re-seating or perhaps the capstan drive motor is faulty. However, try and look for the obvious first. To investigate further by dismantling is extremely difficult and I would not recommend it unless you want to risk writing-off your camera completely. I have done this operation (successfully) as a last resort and found that re-seating the printed cable in its socket solved the problem, however, I would not recommend or suggest this decision be entered into lightly. Its a good feeling when you get it working again but sickening when you have to allocate it to the re-cycle bin. As I say, this fault indication has many causes. Getting it serviced by Canon is not an option as the cost would exceed its value so unless you can find a local repairer that's prepared to look at it, then you have very few options.

What you need is a screw driver not a sledgehammer. Open the bottom plate of the system and eject the cd magazine manually. Hope this solve your problem.

I had a similar problem last few days with my ZR60.
The problem I had was that the tape won't eject and on repeated attempts to eject it would eject as if it had a mind of its own.
I was messing with it a little bit and realized that the door was not opening fully. Being a delicate item I didn't realize that I was not fully opening the door may be because there was a little friction in the pivot pins or what ever.
Try to gently swing the door open fully and see if it helps.
Since I discovered this problem I tried 10-12 times, and every time it would eject the tape and load it.
I was almost going to give up this camcorder last night thank GOD, I am able to use it.
Good Luck to you.
