Tip & How-To about Cameras

Setting time with your JVC VIDEO CAM.

Sometimes we are lazy enough to read our users manual, we want it easy and quicky. For this reason this is common issue to JVC camera users find hard on setting their camera's clock and calendar. Setting is easy but saving your setting is tricky. So set your camera's date and time the usual way and make sure to switch off your camera first completely and remove power(battery or ac adapter) to have your setting save. Next time it will not ask you to set again until internal clock battery expires.

8g sd card doesnt work on jvc camcorder...it says card error

Each camera have maximum memory card to be readable. If the memory capacity is to high from the limit, the camera will hard to write the data inside the card and said that "card error".
Try to insert memory card with lower capacity (4 or 2 GB) and read the user manual to know optimum memory card for your device.

Hope this help and RATE please !

I have 3 of these cameras. One is DOA. No power

This is a professional machine. No power? check the breaker at the bottom rear side, this is accessible you can even see its marking. Could be the breaker if not, there are fuses inside sometimes protects for some reason. This machine has two DC DC regulators one found at the rear side(near battery compartment, hard to access) and another one easy to access below the handle near center(PS BOARD), needs only four screws to open. Mostly PS board damage if no power symptoms shows with all fuses OK. Good Luck
