Question about JVC HR-DVS3 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR
When I playback a MiniDV tape WITHOUT connecting the firewire cable both image and audio are perfect. But when I connect the Firewire cable to the DVS3's port playback starts to "fail". It is a mosaic pattern error. It occurs during two or three frames, when image rapidly shows little mosaic dots. The error happens randomly - 10 seconds after plaback stars, then after 1 minute, then after 3 seconds, and so forth. I sent the VCR to JVC. The number/intensity of this error decreased but it still occurs. The problem exists since first use. I also tried a brand new cable. Any ideas? Is there any solution or have I lost my money for god?
Is the power from both units being supplied from the wall outlet? If so, it is possible to accidently create what is known as a "ground loop" condition. The easiest way to induce this unwanted condition is to connect one unit to an outlet on one wall, and then connect the other unit to a whole different outlet. Always connect units to the same mains connection to help prevent this...Accordianman
