Question about JVC Video Cameras
JVC GR-D70U Has not functioned in three months.
1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.

Condensation means moisture in the systems so you need to dry it out!
Leave batteries out and store the camera in a warm dry place for at least a week.
I'd put it in the car where the floor heat comes out and turn the heat to maximum high fan and heat with the air conditioning button on (air conditioning removes moisture) then crack the window so it doesn't get too hot in the car.
The longer you do this the better chance you have of drying it out!
Let me know if I can help any further!

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
