Hi, open eject door,try to see very small lever at the left side cassette at lower end and try to pull it at your side with very thin and at least 4 inch long screw driver.Cassette compartment will open. But its not so easy to find.It need patience.

1.) set your pc to the correct norm (PAL or NTSC).
2.) if this doesn't help maybe you need to clean the head of your camera.
Take a short search on YouTube how to do it, there are dozens.
(NOTE: if you have recorded something with a dirty head you will not be able to play it back correctly even if after your head is clean!!!)

Shuts off when trying to play or record


This could be due to the VHS tape sticking on the tape reel, that triggers the overload and the shutdown. Try fast forwarding if possible.

I have a Panasonic VCR (DMR-ES35V) and when you insert the tape, it does not thread the tape across the video head. The tape runs for a moment and then ejects.


There's either damage in the drive section, or more likely and in some cases "plus" the Mode Switch is set in the wrong position or is faulty. The mode switch tells the electronics what position the VCR mechanism is in. Such as play or fast-forward. If in the wrong place it will carry out other functions - such as eject - in your case.

The DVD part of the machine keeps skipping and now just won't play any DVD's.


I push the VHS Cartridge in, it drops down to the play position, the front door opens, the tape comes out, it goes around the chrome wheel that is spinning, but it will not play, will not rewind, will not fast forward. It then shows "Error" and the machine shuts off, with the tape still around the chrome wheel, When I turn the machine back on, the VHS Cartridge ejects from the machine. This machine has been used very little, I loaned it to my Son In Law and it came back with the VHS Tape Deck not playing. I have the machine open, so I can see what it is doing.

Panasonic Palmcorder PV-43D cannot get door open


Hi there.
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!!

Used a wet VHS cleaner and now my VCR doesn't work right. Help!!


The VHS cleaning cassette possibly deposited fiber in the heads in the drum. You may need to open the cabin and examine the heads and the mechanism for foreign matterial.

Tape Won't Load


something is blocking the mechanism and not letting it load or the mode switch is bad and the mechanism dosent know where it is. These camcorders are common for this type of problem and these days Im sorry to say that most places charge an arm and a leg just to look at them. good Luck
