Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG30US Camcorder

1 Answer

When I try to ''zoom'' in and out it only ''focuses'' in and out.

URGENT...leaving on vacation in a week... Is my camcorder in some default mode or is it in need of repair? The top zooming button that toggles between W and T- only will go to focus mode. So things either get fuzzy or clear. IS there a way of fixing this myself? Also- does anyone know if a general electronics or computer repair store can solve repairs or would I send it in to JVC?

My HVR-V1U has a focus problem. In manual focus mode, when I zoomed in and focus and then zoom out, it is not in focus anymore. But if I leave the camera in auto-focus it is fine. I don't see a way...


That's the backfocus problem. Take your camera to a Sony service.
If the lenses are ok, they will do an adjustment. If the lenses are defective, they will
replace the lenses, but that costs much.

The zoom button isn't working and therefore when looking through the lens everything is blurry


Follow the instructions below to check and test the focusing of the camcorder.
Manual Focus
✤ In the following situations, you may obtain better
results by adjusting the focus manually.
a. A picture containing several objects, some close to the
Camcorder, others further away.
b. A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow.
c. Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car.
d. People or objects moving constantly or quickly
like an athlete or a crowd.
1. Set the [Power] switch to [CAMERA].
2. Set the [Mode] switch to [TAPE] or [CARD].
(SC-D375(H)/D975 only)
3. Press the [Q.MENU] button.
 Quick menu list will appear.
4. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Focus>, then
press the [OK] button.
5. Press the up/down arrow button to select <Manual>, then
press the [OK] button.
6. To exit, press the [Q.MENU] button.
 The [MF] icon and the [MF/AF] status bar will be
displayed on the LCD screen.
7. Press the up/down arrow button to adjust the focus.
[ Note ]
Manual Focus is not available in the EASY.Q mode.

Make sure the lens is clean--use a soft cloth and don't press hard when wiping--use a circular motion starting from the center of the lens and working to the outside--that way, you wont grind dirt into the glass. If the lens is dirty enough, the camera will actually try to focus on the smudge or finger prints on the lens! Look into the lens and use the zoom button--do the interior lenses move forward and backward? The zoom button could be damaged(liquid or impact), or the lens could be jammed due to impact or liquid( I just fixed my sister-in-law's unit--had cola in it and sugar acts like super glue when dry.)(Lenses jam due to excess heat, too) NEVER leave a camcorder in a hot car. The grease used to enable the parts to move freely and smoothly can flow to sensitive areas and stick like glue.
If the focusing is indeed stuck, the unit must be repaired at a reputable facility. Don't send it in through a retail store unless under warranty.--Hope I was of help.---Rick

Zoom stuck and will not focus


Check to make sure you have not inadvertently set the camera into manual focus mode. Many cameras have 2 modes: auto focus and manual focus.

I had the same problem w/ the same camera. My wife fixed it by doing this: holding down the pictue snapshot button and the video record button simultaneously. Low and behold, the focus came back. I was amazed! Try it.

Faulty focus


Have you tried changing the focusing mode to one of the other settings? I usually find central point setting best for zoom. Alternatively, you could try using Macro (the flower) setting - I leave mine on this all the time it's really the best general purpose mode.

hmmm, the only thing i can think of is to try the easy Q mode and see if it works ok , when it is in easy Q mode it puts the video camera at a default setting and you cant change any of the menu options until you take it out of easy Q.

hope this helps
