Question about JVC GR-D295U Mini DV Digital Camcorder
JVC Model GR-DF550U unit in safemode. I'v tried removing battery but nothing works. Tape is still in unit. Can not get it to eject.
SOURCE: JVC Error Code 02 Safeguard Mode
Brendon, The supply side tape guide can jump out of its track and cause the mechanism to lock up. The load motor is trying to load the tape but cannot, so the load motor driver "times out" and displays the E02 error you're seeing. If you can get to it, try reseating the guide into its track, be careful not to scratch or touch the drum assy located right near the guide track. Good Luck, I hope you can resolve the problem.

On page 51 of your manual, it states that an error has occurred and recommends resetting it by removing your battery, waiting a few minutes to clear it, and then resuming. If that doesn't clear the issue, then it may need servicing.

Previously, when I have experienced this problem, I have removed the battery for 24 hrs and on replacement switched the Camcorder to (M) and quickly pressed the "Menu" button. This has allowed me to scroll down the menu options to the Cam Reset option. Then I reset the camera and all is well. This has worked for the last 3 to 4 occasions, however, this time I cannot get the menu to stay on long enough to reset the camera. Any ideas?

Hello. What I've found is that in dealing with the error codes your choices are very limited. You can try removing the battery and power supply for a while. This might clear the code, however, failing at that you'll be forced to send in the unit for repair--you are absolutely not alone in getting this type of problem--definitely get a quote first and keep "do I want to replace this unit" in the back of your mind....This is a JVC problem.---Rick

Do a search of this problem and you will ind that every JVC owner is having the same problem. I finally got mine "reset" by powering the unit on in payback mode while holding down the "play" button. Then, turn it back off and power it on in the camera mode while holding down the "rec" button. This seems to have reset it and I've not had anymore issues SO FAR!
Good luck with it.
