Hi, I have a Panasonic NV-DS38 which does exactly the same thing. I spent £160 in a repair lab to fix a year ago and now its doing the same thing again. V annoying. But I have found its something to do with the loaded tape. Try a different tape or try ejecting, powering off, powering on and reloading the tape. Its a workaround rather thasn a solution but have a go and let me know. Martin
the reset switch on the underside of the treadmill console. Usually
the button is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip.
Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press
the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down
for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the
reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should
appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change
again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until
the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter
one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.
Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset
