I wonder if anyone can help with a problem I seem to be having with a camcorder which I use for personal stuff.

I have the Panasonic NV-GS11EB and every so often I turn the camera on and it makes a bleeping noise and a message is displayed which asks to push the reset button. You cannot do anything until you have pushed the reset button, so I push the button and sometimes I have to do this several times to get the camera functional. After I have done this a few times then it springs into life but then it will do it again at other times when I go to turn the camera on and there is no logic or reason for it to do this.

I have also noticed that when I try to play back some footage that the display appears that the heads need cleaning but then if the camera moves the screen clears and a full display can be seen.

This is very weird and the camera has almost become useless now because it will randomly ask to reset. Sometimes I have to take the battery out of the holder for a couple of seconds and replace it.

Does anyone else have this camcorder or is anyone familiar with the problem?

Many Thanks
