Unplug it from power and disconnect the battery. Hit the reset button then wait about 15 minutes. Afterwards, you can plug it back in or connect the battery and it should be business as usual. If it shows the error code 3 times in a row, then take it to a shop.

My casio KL-60 Power ON got message ERROR!. How to clear the problem

Here are some steps you can try to clear the problem:
  1. Check the Label Tape: Ensure that the label tape is properly installed and correctly aligned in the label printer. Sometimes, an improperly installed label tape can trigger an error message.
  2. Check for Paper Jams: Open the label printer and check for any paper jams or obstructions that might be causing the error. Clear any jams or obstructions you find.
  3. Replace the Batteries or Use AC Power: If your Casio KL-60 label printer is powered by batteries, try replacing the batteries with fresh ones. If you're using AC power, make sure the power adapter is working correctly and properly connected.
  4. Perform a Soft Reset: Turn off the label printer and unplug it from the power source (if applicable). Wait for a few seconds, then plug it back in and power it on again. This can sometimes resolve temporary issues.
  5. Check the User Manual: Consult the user manual or troubleshooting guide that came with your Casio KL-60 label printer. It may have specific instructions for troubleshooting error messages.
  6. Factory Reset: If the error persists and you have tried all other steps, you may need to perform a factory reset to restore the printer to its default settings. Keep in mind that a factory reset will erase any custom settings you may have made.

I was getting a message clean heads, so I bought the cleaning mini DV to insert. I pressed the button to open the door where the mini DV tape is and it popped up, but will not pop open to release the...

It sounds like something has jammed the tape door mechanism preventing it from opening. This is a very delicate part of a mini DV camcorder. I would highly recommend taking it to a electronics repair shop where it can be checked out. If you try and force the tape out you will probably cause considerable damage to the tape transport system making your camcorder unusable.

Take Care,

JVC Compact Camcorder modle number GR-AXM18U

I had this same issue and it was driving me crazy. If you do not turn the camcorder on and hold the eject button, when it is trying to eject tap right in the middle of the tape (next to the eject button)  I had to do this twice before it opened but it worked. It tends to tighten the tape up and reset that error code message it is receiving internally.

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.!

"Re-attach the power source" but tape is stuck, door open

I had the same problem. First, depress the reset button, located on the camera body (where the LCD screen closes over it). It is hard to see at first. It is important that the camera be set to the OFF position. When the camera is whirring after the reset, then hit the EJECT button so the tape comes out. Take the tape out and insert it back. That's it. My camcorder worked fine and let me record or plaback once I followed those steps.

E02 message

Error relates to water taking to long to get into machine. Check tap is open fully, water pressure is ok, hoses are not kinked. also check the small filters either end of the inlet hoses (inlet valves as well) as quite often they can clog up especialy on a new install. Regards

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)
