The PV-GS35 just quit working suddenly while filming, and I can't get it to power on with battery or cord. I really want to get my recorded cassette out of the camera without damaging the tape at least. Anyone know how?

SD cards go up to 2GB in size. SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB.
The PV-GS35 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. Your 1GB and 2GB cards are SD cards. Your new 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them.
It is possible that the processor could be locked up and if you remove are power from camcorder for 30Min, no battery and no ac adapter either, and it should reset back to normal and let you eject tape.
This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician. My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck
This error indicates a cassette mechanism malfunction. It happens usually when you don't operate the camecorder for long time leaving the cassette inside and the battery attached. Solution: 1. Open the cassette housing and nock GENTLY with your finger tip on the cassette cabinet (particularly on the position marked "push") until the cassette is released. 2. Push on the right place (marked "push") to close and then close the cassette housing 3. Operate the cassette (play, fast forward/backward). Repeat the above steps several times until the problem is gone. Advise: Remove the battery and cassette when leaving the camecorder for long period without being operated, and store the camcorder in a dust/humidity protected place.
Hope this can help.
