The directions seem simple, but when I start recording, the camera appears to be recording for about 22 seconds and then I get a rotating hourglass symbol which does not appear anywhere in the manual. It then turns the recording symbol on and off, the hour glass appears and disappears all on its own and it will not allow me to turn the camera off or use any of the controls regardless of whether the hour glass is on the screen or not. This is my second camera. The problem started when I tried to format the memory card in the first camera. As soon as I pressed "yes" to format the card the camera left the set up mode by itself. I am using the same card in the new camera. I did not try to format it because as soon as I turned the camera on, it said the card was full. So I followed the directions to delete files, but it said there was no file to delete. The camera is pretty. Why won't it work? Linda Lee
Could it be that the SD card is not fast enough? I think that SD 40x or SDHC class 6 is needed from my experience (I am not sure what it says in the manual). What speed/class is the card you are using? I get these sort of problems intermittently on my HD2 (the predcessor to the HD1000) when I use a slower card.

Did you possibly hook it up right to your tv? Where was the blue screen. How do you know it recorded anything if your not sure if it works right. Is the tape moving? Sometimes it may appear to be moving and really it's not. Hear isn't a good thing with a tape recording device. I know this might sound trivial, but I would read the directions if ya got them and make sure your not skipping a step. If you record on some machines you have to switch from record back to play mode. Where is the blue screen.

The hour glass symbol means you have ended a video and the camera is saving it. If it does it on it's own, it might mean you have jammed the recording button. Try tapping it a little or pulling it out a little to get it back to normal. If that doesn't work, your camera may be malfuntioning. If you can't get it to get unjammed, get a friend or family member to help you. Take an easy on it or the camera will break and you can ever use the recording button again.
Not only you. A lot of people have same issue.I have read a lot of questions and answers,forum about JVC software Power cinema ...etc... ( go to www.videoforums.co.uk/general-sofware-problem/12080-jvc-everio-sofware.html ).Headache.That sofware from JVC is a scrap.
Buy a DVD Recorder ( cheap one ) . Record directly from your Camcorder on Replay mode. That is my way.It is good.
Please tell all of your friends,family , co-workers never buy any products from JVC again. NEVER all your life.
Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.
I had same problem. Don't buy a cleaner. Look inside camcorder and make sure both reel turners are equal in height...they can slide down. Turn both of them...one of mine was down and also did not turn to make contact with tape. We got it to turn and the message C31:23 and the dinging quit. Camera instantly worked like it used to. Good luck.
