CARD LOCKED ON PANASONIC NV-GS40

For the last two years my video camera has worked perfectly both for video and ictures. However now a problem has developed - Whatever card I use the camera refuses to work saying 'card locked' the slide on the cards are never touch and always remain in open position - is there something I can do to return the camera to original factory settings or is this too drastic or is there some short cut to returning my camera to taking pictures as before.

I have exactly the same problem - but very occasionally, it returns to normal, I can take a few pictures then up comes the message 'CARD LOCKED' . I change for different cards and the problem is always the same. Nobody seems to have a solution and Panasonic do not answer any questions about their defective products. I am very disappointed having bought this camera. All my previous cameras were Sony with no problems whatsoever experienced.

Hi, I need drivers for my panasonic nv-gs150 video camcorder to transfer videos onto my new windows 7 aio pc.


There is an update for Windows 7. Load the files to your computer and execute them from there. Don't try and download just the drivers, you need the complete software package which also install drivers via a Package Installer.

-try a power cycle
*remove battery and disconnect from power cord
*i would also suggest to check the tapes if they're clean
*try to clean the tape head inside the tape deck(tape head: the one that reads the tape)
-try using a soft and dry Q-tip to clean the metal parts inside the tape deck(dont use or apply any liquid solutions. just a plain soft dry Q-tip.

Open/eject cassette not fully operational


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done 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.


If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on FixYa.com.

Does this camera works on Win Vista?


yeah, I'm having the same problem with my NVGS27. Panasonic have sent me this link http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/info/vista.html which is supposed to offer updates. Have a look and see if your model is there. If not then you're as stuck as I am.
I'm waiting on a reply from Panasonic with some more info.
One other way is to install XP, this is supposed to fix it.
Good luck
