The cleaning tapes that are available are often ineffective. The heads are cloggd up and need to be cleaned professionally. The only way to clean these now is top open up the unit. This should only be done by a service center as it is easy to cause more damage. Also at the same time, the alignment should be checked.

Where do I find a driver for JVC-DVX8 using win 10

Short answer - you probably won't. As this equipment came out well before Win10, it is unlikely in the extreme that any drivers have been or will be available for it.

This could be a fault with the built-in microphone.

One thing to try before condemning the camera is to plug in an external microphone and see if the noise disappears.


Good luck

I have bad audio static when playing my mini dv tapes on two JVC MIni DC Video cameras model GR-D244U and GR-D370U,need help?

The heads need cleaning. DO NOT USE A HEAD CLEANING TAPE. Thats like holding sand paper to the drum. Use alcohol and a swab.

This kind of symptom appears in camcorder when its video head got dirty/ clogged, put video head cleaning tape in camcorder and clean head as per instructions provided with cleaning tape.
You can buy video head cleaning tape from Radio Shake or any store.

Probably the video head has to be cleaned - you should give it to a local camera service center. I don't recommend using the cleaning tapes.

Hope this helps!

Video heads clogged - don't get cleaned with cleaning cassette

This needs to be solved at the shop if your product is under warranty.
If you are adept at opening gadgets do this
Get a bottle carbon tetra chloride
Dip an end of ear buds and clean the heads without touching any plastic parts. Carbon tetra choloride dissolves plastic. The head look like a small "_" on the cylinder. There will be 2 of them

Hi, my JVC mini DV Video Camera has fussy lines through any recordings and says the head needs cleaning. I've tried using the miniDV head cleaner tapes - but to no avail. Have you any...

It could be video head dust or the tape guide were out of alignment or it had been magnetized
In any case you should bring to JVC service center or JVC itself to repair this problem. They must connect your CAM into computer to check up and realignment DO NOT use the tape cleaning it won't help you sometime it cause more trouble such broken video head

Black Horizontal Lines on Screen

mostly this is the result of defective or dirty video head. simply clean the video head by using head cleaning cassette. If it solves the problem, well, but if the problem remains contact the vendor.
