Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-GS12 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Battery dead tried to use plugged in just winds the tape won't eject
Posted by Anonymous on
Sometimes a gentle slap with the palm of your hand with the door facing towards the ground does the trick, make sure you power it off then on press eject while you gently slap it.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

More than likely either the capstan motor or the drum motor are not turning and tape wont load.have you tried reseting by removing battery and reattaching,this sometimes resets micro and all will be fine.If this doesnt work is a job for technician,.

SOURCE: tape rack stayed open
A similar thing happened to me - I took it to panasonic service centre to fix and unbelievably the problem was that the HAND STRAP was quite tight (I have small hands and set it snug) and prevented the door from openeing just another milimetre more, and thus caused the carriage to 'jam'. Loosening the hand strap and opening the door allowed the tape carriage to move properly again. This was a great relief (although I still had to replace the carriage mechanism a few months later.....due to reset button message)

SOURCE: gs36 tape door doesnt open
In case anybody read this.... I have a GS-36 that would not eject the tape. I removed all the screws from the bottom and pulled the bottom plate off. Then I fidgeted with the mechanism near the eject button towards the front of the camera. In my case it had just become stuck and needed to be gently pried open. Tested it a bunch of times with tape - seems to be o.k.!
