CARD LOCKED ON PANASONIC NV-GS40

For the last two years my video camera has worked perfectly both for video and ictures. However now a problem has developed - Whatever card I use the camera refuses to work saying 'card locked' the slide on the cards are never touch and always remain in open position - is there something I can do to return the camera to original factory settings or is this too drastic or is there some short cut to returning my camera to taking pictures as before.

I have exactly the same problem - but very occasionally, it returns to normal, I can take a few pictures then up comes the message 'CARD LOCKED' . I change for different cards and the problem is always the same. Nobody seems to have a solution and Panasonic do not answer any questions about their defective products. I am very disappointed having bought this camera. All my previous cameras were Sony with no problems whatsoever experienced.

Can i know life time of panasonic 102b video camera?


The life span of a video camera is relative to how often you use it and how you use it. The camera is mostly the video head. If the video heads are kept carefully by using quality tapes by renowned manufacturers the Camcorder lasts for very long. My on experience is that if your heads are cleaned properly without stressing them then you can go on for years. i have had my camera for a long time and it seems to perform perfectly well up to now.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting its contents. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back.

If that doesn't do it, try another card.

CPU not recognizing my camcorder


I hope you are connecting the camera to the Fire wire port of the camera, if not, if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
