Error message "push the reset switch"

We can't use our camera because of the error message"push the reset switch", which doesn't go away after you push the reset button. Each time I attempt to conduct a command ie record, forward wind or rewind I get the command push the reset button. It also eats the tape. I currently see a blicking symbol, which is a red rectangle with circle and slash in it.

Set the cam. to whatever you're going to do, record or play. Check the DV tape record/play tab is in the correct position. Turn cam on. open clamshell; insert tape correctly and always push PUSH to close and start the loading sequence.

A couple of things to avoid. When playing a tape, never press tape rewind without pressing stop tape first, the cam. will likely jam. Reported here early last year.

Make sure the cam. strap is pulled clear of the clamshell when opening it. It needs to open fully to start the transport opening sequence. Don't repeatedly load and unload the tape without running it

Pull the battery out to reset it. Get a DV tape cleaner to clean out the tape deck.

That should solve both.

Error with switch on the recorder.


sir,
You didn't mentioned that what kind of camera is using, if any problem with the lens in some models will show this message, if so you have a look on the lens part whether any misplacement happened, giving a slight knock with finger will get it in proper position.

Lens doesn't work


Try removing the battery and memory card for at least 15 minutes. With some cameras, this will reset the camera and lens may clear the error message, as long as there is something that is not physically damaged the camera.

Push the reset switch


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.

Card error


the problem could be multiple things:
1. it's switched into card mode... without a cord 2. the card is locked, this can be fixed by retrieving the card from the camera, then pushing the lock switch down away from the word "lock" (the opposite direction of the tiny little arrow) 3. THe card is corrupted, for this there really is no fix, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58

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.....

"Push the reset switch"


I had the same problem with the 'push the rest button' on the display after the tape mechanism jammed up against the tape compartment cover. I figured there was probably a mechanical error, possibly a switch. I dissassembled the camcorder and found the tape compartment cover switch was sticking. Here's how to fix it with some photos to illustrate:

1. Open the tape compartment door and remove the screws in the small plastic cover (fig. 1). Remember to look a which screw came from each hole as they are all different.

2. Remove the plastic part from above the tape mechanism (fig. 2)

3. Remove the screw above the front grip belt mount (fig. 3)

4. Remove the screw above the mic (fig. 4)

5. Remove the battery and take out the screw at the top left under the viewfinder (fig. 5)

6. Take out the screws under the LCD monitor (fig. 6)

7. Remove the two screws from the front underside of the camera body (fig. 7)

8. Now you can slide the front of the camera, together with the curved aluminium top section away from the main body of the camera (fig. 8)

9. It is possible to reach the switch with the front moved forward slightly, but it is possible to take the front off entirely by removing the wiring ribbon with the green tab (fig. 9)

10. Clean the brown switch at the bottom left of the exposed camera front with a soft brush/air (fig. 10 )

11. Reassembly is the reverse of the above procedure.

Hopefully this will mean no more frustration with the 'press reset button' screen.steviedeee.jpgsteviedeee_0.jpgsteviedeee_1.jpgsteviedeee_2.jpgsteviedeee_3.jpgsteviedeee_4.jpgsteviedeee_5.jpgsteviedeee_6.jpgsteviedeee_7.jpgsteviedeee_8.jpg
