Question about JVC GR-DX97 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have the GR-DX77/GR-DX97 - Started getting "Card Error!" message. I get this in both video and memory modes. I am unable to access the Menu in the memory mode and I have also replaced the memory card. ( I don't get the message when the card is removed from the slot) Thanks.
DUDE u can only take some stills in the memory mode. no vedio recording is available in memory mode. Thats not a problem DUDE. i got the same model.

If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.
leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.
If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing

I solved the problem! Open the video cassette door. Look closely at the gear mechanism and see if there is any small debris in the gears. If not, using a magnifying glass and a paper clip(must stretch it out and use the tip) gently move each gear(gently). I had my unit ON. Once I moved the gear it became unstuck and ejected Mini DV cassette. I then re-inserted the cassette and it worked. The dreaded SAFEGAURD MODE message was gone and it is as good as new.
