JVC GZHD7 frame dropping problem

The JVC GZHD7 cuts up long event filming into files about 18 and a half minutes long (18:23:23 to be precise), which is a real problem, because it doesn't play back perfectly over the joins. The first frame of a new file seems to follow the last frame of the previous file OK, but then there seems to be several frames missing before continuing on as normal. Then at the end of each file, the second and third last frames are the same (duplicated). But what is worse is the fact that the audio is totally missing from the last 9 frames of each file, which produces a noticeable glitch in the sound during playback. It's enough to miss a whole word during speech. This is noticeable both when playing the original TOD file or the resulting quicktime file (converted with MPEG Streamclip) during editing in final cut pro. Is there any fix for this, or better yet, is there a way to stop the GZHD7 from cutting up long continuous video shoots into multiple files?

SOURCE: Capturing GR-PD1 Hi-Res clips in Final Cut Pro 6

I have a similar problem, i - by mistake - shot some footage in ps 50 mode. Now i can capture it in my mac by playing it analog, and than capture it. This seems to work fine only.... date and time keeps showing in the footage and that's not what i want cause that makes the footage totally useless.

Problem is, i don't have a manual i can't seem to figure out how to 'not display' date and time of the recording. Does anyone have a suggestion or maybe an english pdf manual you can send me? Any help would be higly appreciated. (

SOURCE: JVC GZ-HD3U I cant find any video programs to edit

Hi and welcome to Fixyah,

All you have to do is to copy all the files from your camcorder and then save to your documents.
Download video converter to the website. Google it and type it there .TOD convert to MPEG4.

This camera is somewhere between fifteen and thirty years old. It is highly unlikely that spares would be available, and it would be extremely expensive to have it repaired in any case, most artificers familiar with the internal layout having probably retired years ago. Maybe the camera should be retired too ?

After develop the pictures i found that some images are completely blank and the images are cut into half. Half develop and half not. what the cause of it?? thanks

Might be film coming loose when inserting in loading spool and skipping when winding forward after making a shot. Could try bending first 1/2" of film tongue before inserting in slot in windup spool so that it won't slip out and be sure film sprocket holes are engaged with film transport sprockets and a bit under tension when loading film before closing camera cover. Your 'half-frame' problem might be that you are shooting at a 'flash' shutter setting of 1/60 when not using flash.

Canon EOS Rebel G - The picture is cut in half

I'm afraid this is almost certainly a shutter fault - the second curtain of the focal-plane shutter is getting stuck half-way across the film and therefore not shutting properly. The fact that the other half of each frame is OK makes me think that the second curtain is not sticking totally but just moving very slowly for half of its run, thus seriously overexposing that half of the film. This is a repair shop job - unless you want to try it yourself: it may be just some dirt stuck in the track the shutter curtain runs in, but a fair bit of skill is needed to get to it & clean it without damaging anything!
