Communication error with JVC Everio 32x/30GB Hard Disk Drive Cam.

I keep getting a ''communication error'' when I turn the camcorder on. I thought it might be a bad battery, so I replaced it. Still have the same issue. Is it possible the camera got a virus? if so how can I get it reprogrammed, or repaired?

Are you using original JVC Data batteries? The knock off batteries use a small cable to the charge port to defeat the battery chip in these JVC's.

Use a regular pencil eraser to clean all the contacts on both the battery and the camera. Other cleaners won't cut it. I tried alcohol and a cotton swab to no avail. I contacted JVC tech support and the eraser fixed the stupid thing.

Somewhere (usually a the back of the battery) there is a little socket. It's coverer by a tap. Use the small cable (which is provided along with the battery), to connect the battery with the camera' s DC socket. It works!

Check your battery contacts and camera's battery terminals for some dirt. If not from there, your battery needs replacement. When buying new one, test it first before leaving the store, its because even new one(old stock) might have the same problem. Good luck

Charger on cam does not work


If your extended battery came with small cord the cord needs to be plugged into the battery and the camera DC outlet).  My Everio was doing the same thing and I did the above and it works.
