Question about JVC GR-SXM755 Camcorder
I have a camcorder that is a few years old, but only has maybe 5 hours of usage. i got it out and the tape wouldnt eject,so i charged it fully,and it still wouldnt work. at this point i could rew., fsfw.,play, etc.just wouldnt eject. i removed tape cover and manually popped the latch. the tape had been eaten but would still play and everything. got the tape out,put in a brand new one,turned it on and it had tape end on lcd.now it wont do anything,rew.,fsfw.,play,stop, eject, nothing. help!!,there is no-one in my town that will service camcorders.
I have a JVC Camcorder model GR-SXM745U. I have a tape stuck in it and it will not play. It turns on for about 5 seconds then it will say (UNIT IN SAFEGAURD MODE) then it will turn off. I charge the battery in full but it will show that the battery is empty on the screen. I also popped the door open (I didnt break anything) to see if the film is jammed but it is not. Even when I use the adapter instead of the battery, it does the same thing. Can you tell me whats wrong and what to do with it? Thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
