    The charger & new battery both checked & fine.

  • peterw666 Nov 15, 2008

    Wont fire up with AC connection. Definately not water/liquid or contact damage. Don't think its a short but have not the expertise to check the motherboard - made need to take it to a dealer :-/

  • peterw666 Nov 15, 2008

    switch and contact points all OK

  • peterw666 Nov 15, 2008

    ... not the memory card either

  • peterw666 Nov 19, 2008

    OK guys you can stop now :) You know the one about taking the car to the garage and when you get there the problem has solved itself. Decided to take the unit 12 miles down the road to the nearest camcorder doc, he picked it outa the case and, yes, it burst into life!?! Think it is the circuitry n not convinced it won't happen again, but at least I can get the tape out that was stuck in there. Thanks again for all the replies - share the fee however.

Hi,

Most of the responses of the others relating to power is correct. To be more specific, the JVC GR versions has two (2) fuses in the main board, one for the AC power and another for the DC power. Pls reference below partial diagram.

Like all electonics things go wrong from time to time, check to see if the internal fuse has blown or that any ribbon cables or leads have become dislodged from the housings

I would say there is a circuitry/power issue. No point opening it up if you don't know what to look for :)

Best suggestion would be to get it serviced, or buy a new unit, whichever works out cheaper for you..

If you have the knowledge in electronics, open the camera. Else you need to take it to a camera repair shop.

    very small electronic on the motherboard - taking it to the repair shop is your best option since it won't power up with batteries or ac power.

When there is no sign of life is always a power problem.

Go to a camera repair shop and ask to test the camera with different charger.

If it is the charger, buy them a new charger.

    Naturally , the first thing to do is testing the camcorder with a new battery and AC adapter. You told us that you did this already.

    Try starting the camcorder With the AC adapter only (use an adapter that is tested and proven to be good and working). If the battery is shorted, or the battery contacts are shorted, the camcorder wwont turn on whenever the battery is present.

    Inspect the battery contacts inside the camcorder battery slot, if there is fluid or oxide, this can cause a short on the camcorder battery contacts and the unit will not start.

    Check the AC adapter slot connectors on camcorder, if they are defective the camera wont start.

    A common reason for camera not powering up at all, is when there is a bad soldering joint on the power adapter socket, inside camera. The socket is soldered to the camera main board. If one of the contacts is defective the camera won't start.

    More reasons for cameras and camcorder not starting at all are associated with liquid damage, shocks, and some faulty component on the power area of the internal board.

check the charger output if it has an DC out voltage about 8.4 volts. If it does not have, your charger is effective.
