Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Camcorder
Everything on the camera works fine apart from the record button! I have reset all the settings, formatted the hard drive and sd card but still it wont record! Any ideas would be welcomed
I had the same problem and my suspicion was right, it was a hardware problem. I dismanteled the camcorder quite a lot to get access to the record button, but nothing to check there, it is a small switch which should never fail. So I followed the flexprint from there until the point where it is plugged to the board. I shortcutted the two wires and..... it started recording! So the only problem was a bad contact on that plug, the flexprint was a bit loose, maybe already since production or got loose over the years. In fact you only need to take off the right side cover (seen from the rear),underneath you will find the hard disk. Lift the hard disk on the upper side, it is not fixed by screws, just two rubber strips hold it in place. You will see the blue flexprint and the plug. The contacts for the record button are the two utmost to the right. The print can be moved out and put back when you lift the black clamp on the white plug. Good luck, Dietmar

Another solution is to make sure you are using the usb cable that came with the camera. For some reason, if I use any other, the computer won't recognize the camera. It's the one with the magnet. In fact, mine has two magnets on it.
