Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Message E03 "Please remove tape."

Ok, I have had this camera for like 2-3 years now. I was just beginning to video tape when the message, "Please take out and reinsert your tape" kept popping up. I did it a couple of times, but it wont go away. I also removed the battery and the memory card, but is still there. What do I do?

    Same problem!!!! I had the camcorder (GR-D72) a year and a half and very seldom used it. Then one day, I was recording and out of the blue "E03" appears. That was at least a year ago. Just thought I would join in on the BS. JVC doesn't care. They act as if it were my fault. Hundreds of other people have the same problem.

Several different problems are possible. One of the common ones is an fpc cable being injured or shorting to the framework. I don't know of any resolution outside of service. Good luck, magic seadog

When in play mode the following error appears E03 Remove and reattach battery unit in safe mode


Hi,

As you have already removed the battery and re-attached it, try to clean the contacts between the battery and the camera.

I had tried this and it did not work so I tried Tapping on side of Camcorder ( gently on palm ) and I worked, after 2 or three times while message appeared.

Below are few reasons what causes E03 Error

1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with each other, the tape is not wound because of overload to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal

Regards,
Ron

GR-DVL320 keep getting E03 error indication. Ejecting and reinsertion of the tape does not seem to be fixing the problem, also says unit in safeguard mode. What do I do to remedy this?

E03


Day after thanksgiving, (year 2008) about to film my girls putting the tree and same E03 as all of you with the camera chewing my tapes. All of my DV cassettes are brand JVC so I know that was not the issue. I read and read and finally decided to grab a flashlight and study how the mechanism move. Then I noticed something suspicious about the right "two little spikes" attached to a white plastic piece that, when close, it moves to the right side of the camera head (the round stainless wheel inside). The white plastic piece mentioned above, part of it came off the guiding tiny little rail. 1. So I opened the tape compartment with an EJECT command, 2. Close it back up with an inmediate unplug of the camera without battery so it will stay in a position where I can get my fingers and paper clip inside. 3. With the paper clip, stretch the guiding rail in such a way that it widens so the bottom of the white plastic thingy can get back in the guiding rail. 4. Put a cassette inside and FFWD, PLAY or RWD and problem fixed.

Email me if you have any questions. Happy filming!

Previously, when I have experienced this problem, I have removed the battery for 24 hrs and on replacement switched the Camcorder to (M) and quickly pressed the "Menu" button. This has allowed me to scroll down the menu options to the Cam Reset option. Then I reset the camera and all is well. This has worked for the last 3 to 4 occasions, however, this time I cannot get the menu to stay on long enough to reset the camera. Any ideas?
