Question about Panasonic PV-GS300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

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.

How do you get to the shutter release on a d3100 to manualy turn it to get the error message to go away


Try switching the camera on and while it is on remove the battery. Leave it for 30 secs and replace the battery then switch it of and then on. This process sometime clears Error Codes.

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.

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

"ERR" doesn't indicate any specific error, but usually tends to be something only a technician can fix. Sometimes, you can make it go away by fully pressing the shutter release, but chances are that it will reappear at some point. Take it to a reputable camera shop, or send it to Nikon if you're still under warranty.

(The "r09" message is not an error, but an indicator of how many images you can take-nine in this case-before the camera has to pause for processing. This usually applies to burst-mode photography, and varies depending on how fast your CF card can transfer images.)

You probably just need to format the card in the camera to get it to work. This will erase the card so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

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.
