Re: jvc-super vhsc-wont do anything

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.

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.

Eo1 comes on says take out battery and put back in should work but donot need to use camera now.

JVC camcorders are known for having safeguard problems.
mine was locked into safeguard the second time i tried to use it at 1 month old. i had it repaired and it came back eating the tapes. eating the tapes was blamed on old, or improper tapes. they were all brand new never used JVC tapes.
it came back from service locked in safeguard mode.
i got it back the fourth time and it worked for a few days, then went back into safeguard mode.
the shop had it more than i did during the first year.
when it locked the next time after the warranty was out, i was told the estimate for repairs was $300.00.
unless you want to try to risk taking it apart, the only 2 options you have is to send it in for repairs which is not cheap, or throw it away and never buy anything from JVC again.
i chose option 2.

How do I know where to attach the cables to upload

since it's an analogue camera and using a standard tape format, you might as well purchase a VHS-C adapter cassette (GB£10 from several photography stores) and run through your VHS VCR into an analogue video capture card.

Do i need a new cam???

You cannot tell if the switch for the eject is broken on the printed circuit boar, or the switch knob may only be internally broke unless you take the camcorder apart. I have seen just the knob break off inside and this know is only a few bucks + the labor, and thats what ia going to cost the most.

Wont stop zooming

Have you cleaned the heads lately? Or the focus sensor. My previous advice for some one else is to clean the heads every 25 hrs of play. Buy a commercial tape cleaner. Try that first. If that doesn't help you may need to take it to a camera shop and have it cleaned and re-aligned because of normal usage after 2 years. Probably your best option.

My VCR is egecting the tape with the casstte adapter.

The cassette adapter uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHSC tape into the adapter and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink wrap has been removed from the battery
