Take out the battery to clear safeguard mode , if this does not work, the unit is defective and should be taken to service.

    If the unit goes in safeguard mode, and the mode is not cleared by removing batteries then the camcorder has an internal fault.

    Call JVC and claim that this is a factory defect, if you did not damage the camera by yourself, and JVC admits this is a factory defect, you may be entitled to free replacement. see :

Most likely this should have to do with the tape itself. The tape itself could be too tight. Also is this a JVC tape? another thing you want to remember is not to leave tapes in the camera when not in use this will cause damage to the heads in the long run. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly
Thank you,
Lee

SOURCE: unit in safeguard mode

I had the same problem but with just one tape. Everyone else said the tape was to slack. Mine was too tight. so i put some slack into it. It took me awhile to figure it out. compare it to other tapes and make sure they are the same.

It is writing: unit in safeguard more eject and reinsert tape. However after reinserting tape it does not correct. Please help.


Safeguard mode follows a numeric code, go further down and you will see. In case "02" you need a service personel (something to be done/parts need to change with the mechanism)

How to remove safegaurde mode in GR-D239E


I stumbled upon this solution to your question:

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

In neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

I hope that helps.

Gr-dvl-520u trying to record or playback tape it goes into safeguard mode within 5 seconds. alternatly pressing play and still every 3 seconds advanced the playback without it going into safeguard mod


According to http://www.techlore.com/article/10974/JVC-Camcorder-Stuck-in-Safe-Mode/,

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

If neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

If you are getting E03 or E04 errors on every tape you try, it sounds like a servicing is required.

I am recieving error E04 "safeguard mode"


An excerpt from http://www.techlore.com/article/10974/JVC-Camcorder-Stuck-in-Safe-Mode/:

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

If neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

According to this, E04 denotes a problem with the recording media or the mechanical bits that deal with the tape. Hopefully trying another tape helps.

Unit in safeguard mode


You mix te info with Write protected tapes.
Safe guard mode is caused by the motor that takes the tape out of it's case, through the mechanics and past the video head.
If for some reason the electronics detect that it's been done by too much force, the safe guard issue promts.
