Re: Only vertical Lines Appearing

You are one of the lucky ones with a defective ccd, the electronic chip in the lens assembly that makes the image. Actually if you ship this to JVC before October they are repairing this problem at no charge because of a batch failure with this part. Go to to get info. Good luck, magic seadog

HORIZONTAL lines appearing on the display screen

If the line appear when ever you are playing back the job you have recorded with the camera,it might be as a result of dirty on the play head of the camera.So you will need a head cleaner tape.But if the problem continues after cleaning the play head of the camera needs to be changed

GR-D33u vertical lines on all screens

you'll need to send it in for repairs.

some contact info for JVC.

being a fact that JVC camcorders are very trouble prone, it would probably be a better ideal & cheaper to buy a new camcorder.
for your next camcorder purchase, i would stay away from anything made by JVC.

In Camera mode, only streaky vertical lines visible on screen

Its a fault with many of the canons,
they have NOT recognised it,
but you can get it fixed free by a third party company
(cant remember off hand which one soz)

Funny how they do it for free,
as if canon are paying them so they dont have to own up !!!

Image being displayed is all colored vertical lines

I had this problem a lot on Labtops. The problem is that it has been unliquifed in the screen. This means that the screen has been damaged or has got really hot. Also its has been on for along time. LCDs go bad real quick and can be a hassle when you need the infomation in the thing and have no display. When I had this problem on my labtop, I used the external bay to use another monitor so I can work on it. So I say that nothing can be done to fix it. The only way to see your stuff on there is to use the video out on the recorder and try to check your stuff. That multicolor lines you saw is becoming major right now in LCD displays. I hope this solves your problem.
