Question about JVC High-Band MiniDV Digital Video Camcorder
Ok, so when i try to do anythig with my camera, record or playback, it says safe guard mode is on please eject and re-insert tape. I have done so may times but it just won't work. So what must i do to fix it?
SOURCE: No record, but playback

I have a DVL520U,
I may be lucky from what I have read, but this is what I did. I took out the tape, released the tension on it by pressing the small tab between the wheels (I observed a slight wheel movement). I took the eraser end of a pencil, and while holding the tab, rotated the spindles of the tape 10-15 rotations back and forth (this from the vcr days and tracking problems). I put the tape back in and the problem went away. I thought of this after reading post after post and then finding the definitions of the error codes on a french website. Codes 4-6 seemed to be with the mechanical aspects of the drive, codes 1-3 with the sensors etc. All in all it was a guess on my part. If any of this works for you, pass it along.
