Question about Panasonic NV-GS15 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Jammed compartment door

I have this evening encountered a similar problem as already decribed here. At the time my camera was 'attached' to Microsoft's Vista software. Is there a known 'fix'?

The compartment door (where you have the little "PUSH" label) is open but compartment itself(Which has the lable "BEWARE OF JAMMING FINGERS") now had gone down to usual Compartment closed position, so I cannot
1. get the compartment "UP" since the plastic door with the EJECT button is open and stuck, which prevents opening using that button.
2. close the compartment door while compartment is lowered in to the camera.

I am pleased to say that my good lady wife, of 49 years standing, 'fixed' the problem ~ not once, but twice. Pat has always managed to solve such problems, and this time she was fiddling inside the compartment near the camera 'on/off' switch and, Hey Presto!, the camera now works satisfactorily. I attribute her prowess in solving small mechanical problems to a woman's intuition. I just wish I could be more precise on her success.

How do i scan a document so that i can attach it or save it to a flash drive?

It will depend on if you have the full software installed and want to use that software or another program. Put the document face down on the glass or face up in an Auto-document Feeder.

Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP > HP Solution Center). Click Scan Picture or Scan Document and adjust the settings if desired and click OK. Set the scan destination and file type. Then press Scan. If you want to use the buttons on the scanner to launch the scan software on the computer, you need to set up the scan to destinations and settings in the Solution Center first.

WinXP, Vista and Win7 can acquire scans with Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner), Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery (download from Microsoft for Win7).

I hope this helps.

i think your problem is that even though the camera is there on your laptop it does not show any attatched devices like camera in it, it is because vista will not detect any usb camera devices as Xp. Try using some camera management software like WinDVR or something else
