PV-GS85 door won't close

My PV-GS85 door won't close. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this? There was no underlying reason for this, i.e. - it did not get dropped or anything else.

You will need to capture using a firewire cable.
If you are using a firewire cable and it does not work try another brand of cable as some have a reputation for not handling DV capture.

In my experience, your recorded video is in mod or mts format. No matter what, these HD formats cant be accepted by your imovie. U have to convert these hd formats to mov or mp4 imovie can accept.
I always use Pavtube HD Converter which can help me convert these hd formats to mov to use in my imovie. It is easy to use with high output quality.
U can have a try.

Where is the reset button


I hope this helps. I have a PV-GS85 camera and the reset button for it is on the right hand side of the camera as you're holding it. It is a small recessed button just in front of (toward the lens) the Auto/Manual/Focus switch. It should say 'RESET' next to it. You may have to get something small to poke into it to reset it. Hope this helps you.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS85 Problem: Capture video with Windows Moview maker via USB


I believe you have to use a Firewire (IEEE 1394) cable to transfer the video. From what I have read, the USB connection is only if you want to use the camcorder as a "live" camera.
