    Default panasonic NV-GR120 wont playback, any ideas?

    hi, i very foolishly put a dodgy tape in my pansonic nv-gs120 which had been in my girlfriends camera which is knackered, my camera immediatly stopped being able to play back any tapes at all, it sounds like it is playing but displays no picture and the timecode doesnt move. After mine stopped working i looked inside her JVC and realised it was filthy so i looked inside my cam and it is perfectly clean, i ran a cleaning tape anyway but it made no difference. any ideas on what the prob could be so i can avoid sending it to an 'authorised panasonic repair centre' at 50 an hour? HELP PLEASE!

    This is a long shot, but worked for me when I had a similar problem with a Sony camera.

    1. Set the camera to play mode

    2. Disconnect all power

    3. Wait 60 seconds then reconnect power an try to play/record.

    Worth a go if the alternative is 50 per hour

    Good luck

    The only other thing I can suggest is that you do a google search on the error code (if you have one) or try some of the generic hardware forums. eg camcorderinfo.com
