This problem is in the owners manual. It says that if you press reset and the problem keeps recurring you must have it serviced. Per the panasonic website if you purchased the camcorder greater than 1 year ago the flat fee for repair is about $265. Buy a new camcorder, thats the most cost effective solution.

when you connect the camera to your mac via firewire, make sure you have an application open that will allow you to import the material.    The most common application being 'imovie'.

you definetly have a tape mech fault and this is going to have to go for repairs to panasonic.

Panasonic... | Answered on Jun 13, 2008

a reset error is not repairable if you do not have exsperience with this. If this unit is showing a reset error there is either a fault with the lens or the tape mech, looking at your fault the mech is faulty and only a qualified panasonic technician is going to be able to repair this.

press rec button again,sometimes certain cameras have built in or auto mechanism that keeps the user from leaving camera record on.

This is not a problem with the tape but the camera. The only way to fix it seems to be to find an empty spot on the tape or a spot you don’t care if you record over. Then record for a second then go to video mode and you can play the tape without the blue lines. Or buy something else to play the tapes which should be fine either way. Darn camera !

I have trouble with my PV-GS12

Buy my PV-GS12 but I came with no driver and I can not get it from any side. The driver that I would help to lower engraved on the tape to my PC. Someone may tell me to do or where to get the driver.

Open the side door where the video scren is, and it's a tiny little gray button you have to push in with a pencil or pen all the way on top, above the soft skin and multi/p-in-p button!

Panasonic... | Answered on Jan 28, 2008

Connect it to your computer with a supplied USB or Firewire cable and use the software supplied on CD with the Digital Camcorder. If you have a Firewire cable, but nowhere to put it, you'll need a Firewire card or a Firewire adaptor, which can be bought from most computer retailers.

I have the same problem with my PV-GS14. You have to find the last spot you recorded in, pause it, then switch to record, and just record something for a couple of seconds. Switch back to playback, and it should be fine. Neonlaundry, I read your other posts, and it seems we both have the same problems. If you find a solution, please post it. Thnks.
