G'day,

I also have the same problem and after almost buying a replacement I thought I would try one time to get it to go.

What I did was start the cam without a tape in it, let it bring up the little red icon indicating no tape inserted, (it hadn't started flashing "PLEASE RE-OPERATE AFTER PUSHING RESET BUTTON" at this stage) then I inserted my tape. Hey presto, it works although for how long I don't know. I'll immediately start burn my tapes to disc while the going is good.

Hope this helps someone

Bin?wait just a bit...try this and then throw it to the bin/
You need to know in which position was camera turned of.
So try turning it on in RECORD OR PLAY position.
It will work then...

Charging Panasonic NV-DS38


Yes that is correct.

You have to use a separate charger as the "DC in" socket is on the camera body underneath the battery.

Please reoperate after pressing reset button


When you switch it on the red led will light up but within 10 seconds it will flash and then a message on the screen will come on to tell you to reset then tell you "in service".
This will repeat itself forever to frustrate you no end but I have stumbled onto tricking it into working, ie get the led on without progressing to flash. Try switching it on and as soon the led comes on, switch it off, do this a few times, then leave the switch on and voila it might stay on like it did for me.
Just now I have ran it for an hour, switch it off then after 30 seconds turn it back on and it stays on.
I thick the reset button is all bull. Let me know how it all went or am I all bull for your NV-DS38.

I have the same problem. A workaround may be to take the tape out, turn on again, swith to "card P.B." mode, load tape in while in this mode, switch back to camera mode.
This seemed to solve it (temporarily?) for my NV-DS38.
