Power Light Flashing

I have a NV-DS50 Panasonic video camera and when I turn it on, the power light flashes and then after about 10 seconds or so, the recorder sometimes turns off. Also when it is turned on, there is a red rectangle shape that has a diagonal line through it that flashes on the screen. The camera won't play back, rewind, etc or record (depending on mode) at all. I have charged the internal and external batteries, but to no avail. I have noticed others have this same problem, but there have been no solutions posted. Please someone help me. Thanks.

The red rectangle usually means that the camera thinks there is no tape in it. Could be a bad sensor in the mechanical section.

Not working

Remove bottom plate by unscreewing the 7 screews (for one of them you must open the viewfinder) and make sure the ribbon cables are connected securely . You just need to push genty the ribbon cabbles and reposition the plate, this should solve the problem.

Flashing power light

same problem, my nv-ds50 powers up, but with the with power light flashing in twos and then powers itself down. The menu button sometimes works briefly when it's powered up. I had been transferring video back to mini dv tape from the pc (pinnacle studio 8) when I first encountered the problem and was wondering if I damaged something in the camera by powering up/down in the wrong sequence using my firewire cable?? I also seem to have a lower case "f" to the right of the timecode when it powers up - & cannot find any documentation as to what that could mean (although perhaps it's a "t" for timecode?)...I tried the c.reset option in "display setup" a few minutes ago - no luck then...but hey bingo, now I seem to have it back on line again ...go figure!
