Question about JVC Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a jvc mini dv GR-D23EK camcorder. It usually works absolutely fine but I have gone to use it after it being charged and you cannot see anything through the lens. It is picking up and recording sound but it keeps on telling me that the lens cap needs removing and it already has been. The screen is black and it is not picking any picture up through the eye part either? Can you help?

Hi,
JVC camera has common issue with CCD Imager defects. Please mention correct model and your country name to provide you further help as JVC has free repair scheme for few models. I couldn't find GR-D23EK. Just as reference, click JVC GR-D22US to see problem and details.

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

I've tried several 4 GB SD memory cards in my JVC GR-DF450u mini dv digital camcorder and continue to receive an Card Error Message? How do I fix it.


The GR-DF450u works with SD cards. Your 4GB cards are actually SDHC cards. While they fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How can I get a manual for my JVC camcorder,model#GR-DA30U. Also how do I get a USB for same camcorder?


JVC has manuals for the GR-DA30UC and GR-DA30US models at
http://books.jvc.com/booklist.asp?Model=GR-DA30U

Neither one of them has a USB port, so there are no USB cables for the camcorder

JVC GR-D91U MINI DV NO POWER SO CAMERA WILL NOT WORK AND TAPE WILL NOT EJECT REPLACED BATTERY AND STILL HAVE PROBLEM ALSO WHEN CHARGER IS PLUGGED IN --CAHRGING LIGHT DOES NOT GO ON


I haven't exactly fixed this problem as of yet but I do know what is causing it. The tape that you last put in is defective and to keep from causing more problems the camera has shut down. The problem is that the only way to fix it is to remove the mini-dv. I am looking for a tool small enough to remove the screws that will allow me to manually extract the defective mini-dv. I am hoping this works, and will let you know what I discover.

JVC Mini DV Camera - Lens cap


When the amount of light detected by the camera is next to zero, this message will appear. If the lens cap is off, then the problem is that the iris is stuck shut. This is not a common problem, but is not unheard of either. If this is the case, the unit needs service. This is not a repair that should be done by an inexperienced person. This involves dis-assembling part of the optical pathway. Figure around $100 for the repair.
