Question about JVC GR-D250 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

JVC camcorder with blurred images

One day I noticed that even though my camera was on automatic, the focus was off and the images were blurry. If I zoom in to a certain point it would be clear again but other than that it's just blurred. Did something go wrong with my settings or is my camera preparing for it's grave. Is there a way to troubleshoot this problem?

You could try using the focus button on the left side of your camera. Because I have the same camera and that happened to me before but if you just push the focus button a few times it show work.

It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan

I took some pics with celebrity they are blurred can i email them to you to get cleared up very dissapointed


Blurry pictures are not an easy photoshop fix. If the image is out of focus or has a motion blur it will be very tough. It really depends on what you are looking to use the image for as well. Sharpening can help but will be noticable if you try to make a large print.

Camera constantly takes blurred pictures


Appears that the auto focus mechanism is not working, This anomaly is most obvious in lower light situations when focusing is much more critical.

If the camera was new and two months old I would either return it for another one or have Nikon repair the lens assembly under the terms of its warranty.

Photos are blurred.


Blurred images are caused by several reasons: motion due to camera shake, use of slow shutter speeds and failure of the camera to focus correctly.

Slow shutter speeds

When light is low, wide apertures and slow shutter speeds will be selected automatically by the camera. Most people can't take blur-free, hand-held shots when the shutter speed is under 1/60th of a second.

Cameras that have optical Image Stabilization help but even IS has its limits. Increase room lighting, increase the ISO setting or use a tripod, or use a combination of all three.

Blurred images or misfocus

If an image is blurred due to camera shake, the blur will appear throughout the entire image. If parts of an image are in focus, and others are not, you've misfocused.

Nikon D40 will not focus


on the right side of the view finder there is a little bar. Make sure it is all the way down. If it is in the up position then it will make the viewfinder, shouldn't make the images blurry though. Also make sure it is in AF not MF (auto focus and manual focus).

Constant blurry photo's!


the solution to this is that your cameras are set to power save just put powersave on off temperarly while you snap a photo or the lighting in the room needs to be brighter with digital cameras even though theres a falsh it cant change the image contrast from dark to light so quickly so it just comes out blurry

Check that you have not got Macro set accidently.
If lighting level are low and the camera is selectinging a slow speed - reset to Apeture Priority -setting 'A' and and be very gentle with the release - the slightest movement will blur an image on long exposure.
Try these thing and if still introuble come back with more detail

Audio drop out and/or static sound Thanks to anyone who has taken a look at my issue with audio cutting out. JVC has always been a brand I have confidence in, and I believe I picked this camera up when those recording to an internal hard drive were out of my range. Last summer, I received a fantastic deal on some JVC Evarios, so GR-D250 duo would be used only as back-up, BUT, I have a ton of old Mini DV tapes -- never recorded over anything. I would find the heads needing cleaning solution highly unlikely. The first 250 recorded the bulk of those 150 or Mini DV's and worked like a champ. Because of legal depositions for lawyers and like, who may not want for me to call time-out in a deposition to switch tapes and the fact that eventually my first was going to give out, having a back-up and eventually multiple seemed like the thing to do. Having a couple of friends film some sports events I could my mix radio play-by-play I could with dual camera angles was cool. This same-year model second buy had sat in storage; The original tape the who sold it to me with 10 minutes of footage came with it. I could tell the battery was so much stronger after a full charge than my old one, but this newer D250 has maybe had 1/10 the recording time as my original. Whether listening to the camera speakers, piping the sound from the rear A/V jack or importing via firewire, it's the same. The video may not be perfect and may "spark" or "flicker" in unison with the audio that drops out,but not always. At times, the video seems just fine but the audio drop-out is akin to a loop and I could probably time it, which was what I termed as cyclical. Could one of my friends have dropped it or tipped over a tripod and not told me? Sure, but I would think they would have told me. One night, follow some high school hoops I was importing, excited at the prospects of some two camera angles mixing. Thought I may have had a bad tape, but ruled that out right away through trying multiple tapes in bother cameras. Apologies for my loquacious follow-up; I suppose if worse comes to worse, I could check eBay for a secondhand model. I've "misplaced" my original, but it will turn up; it's simply a matter of desiring to import all that footage, since 2008, with superior editing software and skill than what I possessed when doing so initially. Thanks so much!
