Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot switch on

I have a JVC GR-D70. yesterday, i transfered a few clips from my camcorder to my pc, and i was also charging it at the same time. Today, as soon am inserting the battery, the red power light is on. This light is not supposed to be on unless the camera is on which is not the case. The light is on even if am not charging it. When i switch the camera on, there is no difference, the light keeps lighting all the time, the camera never switches on. There is also a tape inside which i cannot removed, nothing happens when i open that part. Please help, i really need the tape.

JVC camera software GR-D70 for windows vista

Like most I have searched the web for drivers, preferably free ones. I emailed JVC Australia who responded with tis solution.

The camera has a connection called DV. The DV connection is used with a cable called Firewire.
Firewire is a driver less cable and will allow you to stream you video footage across from the camera to your PC.

USB is used for data transfer and need drivers, you would use this mainly to transfer still images or data files off a HDD camera.
If you use firewire and the DV connection you will stream the footage across to the PC and the PC will capture the footage as it is playing.

The firewire is about $15 and can be purchase from stores such as **** Smith, Bing Lee, Harvey Normans and Tandy. I would suggest that you take a photo of the connections on your PC as there are two types of DV connections. (4pin - 6pin)

How to find replacement adapter for GR-D70AS

Order the original adapter from JVC. The adapter supplies the correct current requirements to operate the battery charge circuit. JVC's web site is JVC.COM. The correct charger will provide up to 1.5 amperes of current for the charge circuit at approx. 11 volts DC. Good Luck Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (
