JVC GR-D350U problems

When playing back and exporting to computer the monitor shows horizontal bands that are superimposed on the image thats been recorded. Some times it looks like a residual image from the previous recording and when importing to Imovie the bands are made up of a mosaic of colors. I have cleaned the heads and still this happens.

    Very correct, 
    I took some isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab and cleaned the heads and rollers. Then used a head cleaner and it worked fine. I later discovered some oily residue on the tape I had tried to play and think this is the culprit.
    Thanks!

I have seen this many times, and it is usually always dirty heads, and it is a bigger problem when you record in long play. If the heads were dirty when the tape was recorded, then that is how the image was stored and will stay that way. So make sure you clean the heads before an important recording. Try cleaning them again with a new cleaning tape, and it just might come good if it was originally recorded fine.

Jvc gr-d350u. Constant E06 code with either battery or power adapter


if the screen keeps showing e06 device is in safeguard mode """"please remove or reattach the battery""""" If the error continues, please understand that it is a FAULTY BATTERY. This error is very common and results when the battery life has been changed or altered due to time elapsing. There is not a lot that can be done except to request a new battery. I performed more research on this and found that an equivilent may be purchased directly from jvc.com for a fraction of the costs then replacing the entire unit.

Image Sensor Problem


Does the black line record on the tape? When you play back on a TV/Computer can you still see the black line. If you do that would be the image sensor.
Good luck!!

Elakkis, I am sorry you are having a problem with your JVC camcorder. Your camera more than likely has a defective CCD imager which is being replaced by JVC factory service at no charge because of a problem with the Sony CCD chip being used. Call JVC and arrange to send the camera to them. Hope this helps you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)

You have a clogged video head. Use a dry type head cleaner and follow the instructions. Better use the best tapes you can afford, since tape quality can keep you from having this problem, and tape cleaners can gradually damage your camera. Good luck

Audio drop out and/or static sound Thanks to anyone who has taken a look at my issue with audio cutting out. JVC has always been a brand I have confidence in, and I believe I picked this camera up when those recording to an internal hard drive were out of my range. Last summer, I received a fantastic deal on some JVC Evarios, so GR-D250 duo would be used only as back-up, BUT, I have a ton of old Mini DV tapes -- never recorded over anything. I would find the heads needing cleaning solution highly unlikely. The first 250 recorded the bulk of those 150 or Mini DV's and worked like a champ. Because of legal depositions for lawyers and like, who may not want for me to call time-out in a deposition to switch tapes and the fact that eventually my first was going to give out, having a back-up and eventually multiple seemed like the thing to do. Having a couple of friends film some sports events I could my mix radio play-by-play I could with dual camera angles was cool. This same-year model second buy had sat in storage; The original tape the who sold it to me with 10 minutes of footage came with it. I could tell the battery was so much stronger after a full charge than my old one, but this newer D250 has maybe had 1/10 the recording time as my original. Whether listening to the camera speakers, piping the sound from the rear A/V jack or importing via firewire, it's the same. The video may not be perfect and may "spark" or "flicker" in unison with the audio that drops out,but not always. At times, the video seems just fine but the audio drop-out is akin to a loop and I could probably time it, which was what I termed as cyclical. Could one of my friends have dropped it or tipped over a tripod and not told me? Sure, but I would think they would have told me. One night, follow some high school hoops I was importing, excited at the prospects of some two camera angles mixing. Thought I may have had a bad tape, but ruled that out right away through trying multiple tapes in bother cameras. Apologies for my loquacious follow-up; I suppose if worse comes to worse, I could check eBay for a secondhand model. I've "misplaced" my original, but it will turn up; it's simply a matter of desiring to import all that footage, since 2008, with superior editing software and skill than what I possessed when doing so initially. Thanks so much!
