I tried to power it up today, and when I do, the redpower light comes on momentarily, about a`second, I hearsomething from inside for about the same time, then the power lightgoes off, The clock is flashing 12:00 and the Tape icon is on, so iknow I've got power. Any ideas???

I have seen a couple of these decks that had broken solder connections at the rear AC power connector. the main board has to be removed to access the connections.

sounds like a defective cassette housing, but i have seen problems with jvc decks and camera when tdk or maxell tapes were used. the lids on these tapes seem to get stuck in the cassette housings in jvc equipment. jvc even recommends that tdk and maxell tapes be avoided.

I had the exact same problem; my tape icon was flashing red with a line through it and the recorder would not record, no matter how hard I begged it to. After a full day of frustration, I called the videographer who had used it previously. There is a little trick.
1. Open the exterior tape door with the "Eject" button.
2. Wait, dont touch the tape. The little metal encasement will pop over and open within a few seconds.
3. To properly put the tape in, insert tape, push the little metal door that sais "Push this first".
4. Then push the exterior door closed.
Voila! Thats all there is to it!
