Question about JVC Digital Cameras

Open Question

My JVC GR-D824 Mini DV Camera seems to record the majority of what i shoot it at, but sometimes it snapshots over and over when i don't even press it? I was wondering if this is a common and fixable problem as the camera is only a year old?

Lens may be closed with a cover or with some kind of dust or dirt.
Aim at bright light subject. Get out of the house and try to capture in outdoor.

SOURCE: I have a JVC Mini

Try this one:

1. Take of the battery and take all of the screws out of the exterior and also behind the LCD. I recommend drawing a sketch of each view of the cam on a pice of paper(top,side,bottom,back) and place every screw it its rightful place, cause they're different sizes and you're shure to mix them up if you're not careful

2. Carefuly pull the two sections of the camera apart (left and right). You will notice a connector linking the two parts

3. Disconnect the connector from one side. I think you can disconect it only from one side, you have to pull up on a strapping mechanism. Careful not to force it. Figure it out patiently.
Wait about 5-6 minutes and re-connect it. This kinda resets the whole camera.
4. Put it back together.
Hope that helps..........

SOURCE: JVC GR-D91U MINI DV NO

I haven't exactly fixed this problem as of yet but I do know what is causing it. The tape that you last put in is defective and to keep from causing more problems the camera has shut down. The problem is that the only way to fix it is to remove the mini-dv. I am looking for a tool small enough to remove the screws that will allow me to manually extract the defective mini-dv. I am hoping this works, and will let you know what I discover.

SOURCE: I've tried several 4 GB

The GR-DF450u works with SD cards. Your 4GB cards are actually SDHC cards. While they fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

Hi, my JVC mini DV Video Camera has fussy lines through any recordings and says the head needs cleaning. I've tried using the miniDV head cleaner tapes - but to no avail. Have you any...


It could be video head dust or the tape guide were out of alignment or it had been magnetized
In any case you should bring to JVC service center or JVC itself to repair this problem. They must connect your CAM into computer to check up and realignment DO NOT use the tape cleaning it won't help you sometime it cause more trouble such broken video head
Cheers

JVC Mini DV Camera - Lens cap


When the amount of light detected by the camera is next to zero, this message will appear. If the lens cap is off, then the problem is that the iris is stuck shut. This is not a common problem, but is not unheard of either. If this is the case, the unit needs service. This is not a repair that should be done by an inexperienced person. This involves dis-assembling part of the optical pathway. Figure around $100 for the repair.

Im trying to import videos from my mini dv tape on my digital Video camera JVC GR-290u i plugged in a usb cord from my camera to the computer but nothing came up. when i switch from video mode to memory...


As it's a DV (Digital Video) camera you should use the IEEE 1394 Firewire socket if it has one. Then use a DV capture program.
If you dont have a Firewire port on your PC you can buy a card like this one which will connect you Camera to your PC.
