Here's what i found. I was able to clear the message by opening and closing and ejecting the cassette. I also had to play with the battery at the same time. Keeping the cassette door open and then pulling out the battery. After is did this a couple of times i got the message to clear. I too haven't used my camcorder for some time and now that the error message has cleared the camcorder tells me that i need to clean the heads. Hope this helps. Below is the message i found that pointed me toward ejecting the cassette. An error indication (E03 or E04) appears. - (E03 or E04 UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE REMOVE AND REATTACH BATTERY) This massage a malfunction of some kind has occurred. In this case the camcorder's functions become unusable. - Eject the cassette once and re-insert it, then check if the indication clears. When it does, you can resume using the camcorder. If the indication remains, consult your nearest JVC dealer or service center

I have a DVL520U,

I may be lucky from what I have read, but this is what I did.  I took out the tape, released the tension on it by pressing the small tab between the wheels (I observed a slight wheel movement).  I took the eraser end of a pencil, and while holding the tab, rotated the spindles of the tape 10-15 rotations back and forth (this from the vcr days and tracking problems).  I put the tape back in and the problem went away.  I thought of this after reading post after post and then finding the definitions of the error codes on a french website.  Codes 4-6 seemed to be with the mechanical aspects of the drive, codes 1-3 with the sensors etc.  All in all it was a guess on my part.  If any of this works for you, pass it along.

Here is the link to the user manual for your camcorder if you need it; http://books.jvcservice.com/download/685826248/21964.pdf There does not appear to be a factory settings reset, however in the manual, all the settings and their preset values are listed. You could try removing all multimedia cards, battery, power supply and leaving the unit for around 3 months! (page 11) to discharge the internal memory cell, or if you feel competent to take the camcorder apart, you MAY be able to remove and replace this battery. Unfortunately I think the resets have to all be done individually, or take the camcorder to a service centre to see if they can discharge the internal memory cell - this is probably not a good idea, dependent on the exact tyoe of cell used. Hope this helps some :)

Take camera and its battery to a camera outlet, ask them to check the built-in rechargeable battery.
Most outlets will help you with this, as its likely that if the battery has failed, you'll buy a replacement from the same dealer.

not sure on this one but it might be the heads in your vid cam may need cleaning.
or the tapes are not running straight on the heads or the rollers in side.
if the vid cam has been in a cold place it can cause this fault as the heads may have a bit of damp.
try putting a tape in and run it fast forword in play mode and see if starts to clear the playhead.if it does keep doing it until you see a clear picture.
this could also be a head misalignment fault if it is you will have to take it to some one to have a look at.
if any of the above does not work then you will have to take to some one to look at it.

Sounds as if the battery needs replacing - have you tried with a spare battery ?

The heads need cleaning. DO NOT USE A HEAD CLEANING TAPE. Thats like holding sand paper to the drum. Use alcohol and a swab.

Do you have the sd card that holds the pictures?
Put in computer.
Computer will give you option how to open and save photos.
You do not have to use makers software disc, any photo reader can store your pictures on computer.
