Question about Panasonic NV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Jammed compartment door

I have this evening encountered a similar problem as already decribed here. At the time my camera was 'attached' to Microsoft's Vista software. Is there a known 'fix'?

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.

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.

Won't turn on


Take the battery out and look inside the battery compartment, for anything that shouldn't be there, like a piece of paper, plastic, etc. Also see if the contacts look bent or broken. Try another battery, just incase yours has failed. Turn the camera on and off multiple times (to help clean the contacts in the switch). Remove and re-attach the lens (this usually will not cause the camera to stay off, but worth a try) and make sure the lens is fully locked in position on the camera.
If all of the above fails, send the camera to canon service, they will probably charge $75-150 if it is out of warranty. http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer?pageKeyCode=onlineRepairLanding

My Panasonic DMC-LZ3 camera appears to have locked up


Make sure the scene mode dial is correctly "clicked" into a choice. You could also try this...remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Each time I power the camera on to take photos I need to reset the time and date. Is there an internal battery that is malfunctioning? Any other ideas that may be causing this? Thanks


Yes,more than likely there is a little button cell battery that powers the date and time.You'll have to look in your manual to find its location.I just discovered my battery is dead.Yep i checked the manual even tho i already knew where to find it.Took some reading to find but it was there in the manal.Its located in the battery compartment on my canon A720IS.Mine takes a CR 1220 - 3Volt.I'm still trying to find a replacement.Guess i'll have to go to a camera store to get the battery.Couldn't find at any of the usall places.Hope this helps someone,Gary Malcontent

FRONT LOADER DOOR LOCK WONT OPEN OR JAMMED


On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

Cassette Jam


The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening the cassette compartment cover. When the cover is fully open, the videocassette will eject automatically. Please try the following procedures. 1. Attach the power source to the camcorder correctly or use a fully-charged battery pack. 2. Fully-open the cassette compartment cover until it stops while sliding and holding the OPEN/EJECT switch. The videocassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. If the videocassette still will not eject, seek assistance from a Canon Service Facility.
