SOURCE: Unable to see any picture on my JVC GR-D22U Camcorder. Please help*

I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.

I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.

I bought a new battery for laptop and it still wont charge

Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.

One of the 2 battery does not work on camcorder.

some of those batteries come with a lid on the face side of the battery where u insert a power cord in order for the camcorder to get power from the battery. (strange........ I know). the battery mounts on the camcorder but acts as as an external source of power. a cord needs to be plugged into the battery and then int the ac adapter jack in order to send power.... that is if it is anything like my camcorder.

If it does not show 'charging' when connected to power, then something may be wrong with the power cord. If it is the vehicle cord (the one with the cigarette lighter plug) check the fuse in the tip of the cord.

Dryer not working

Assuming the problem is associated with you changing the cord, it sounds like you have a wire crossed on the power cord. Double check how you have the cord installed first. If that is correct check your power to the dryer. Since you changed the type of cord, I assume you have had outlet replaced or have just moved to new house. If you have a fuse box instead of a breaker box, check your fuses. It takes two fuses for the dryer. If one of them blows, the motor will run but you wont get heat. The motor runs on 120 but it needs 240 for the element. I can't count how many people have bought a new dryer just to find out they only had a house fuse blown and nothing was wrong with their old dryer. If you have had wall outlet changed there could be a wire crossed in it.

Can't get it to work

It looks like your Camcorder will need professional service. This model is famous for blown fuses, however these are surface mounted components about the size of a pin head. Not a user servicable situation. Good luck, magic seadog

Power Failure

Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.

Not receiving power from the battery, but getting it from the power adapter

Check for corrosion on the battery contacts, If you find some clean it using a pencil eraser. Otherwise you're looking at an internal malfunction that prevents the cam to draw power from the batteries. Some transistor needs replacing, if you can get to a lab that has experience working on these, shouldn't be too expensive. Good luck
