I have had all of the same problems, and I even asked my digital video professor and he couldnt figure it out. I had pretty much given up, but i used a head cleaning tape for the blue lines, and the reset button i just kept pushing it turning the video camera on n off, and taking the battery out until the tape came out , and eventually just blew in it, and right now its working again, hopefully that helps some of you...
I have the same problem, but when i took out my batter, put it back in and took out my tape..the reset button errors stopped..i think my tape was bad..i tried a new tape and i dont get those errors..now i just get the blue lines..when those blue lines are gone itll work now..

The Panasonic PV-GS12 will transfer video in video record mode and video playback mode using the DV connection (IEEE) Firewire port. PC Mode is restricted to memory card access via USB. If after connecting it in this manner if it does not work try this. With everything connected via firewire and iMovie running. switch the camera to PC mode and the import window should pop up. You may get a comunications error and if you do then switch to playback mode. The import window should stay open and you can control your camera with the iMovie controls.
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.
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.
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.
