JVC 700 dv: Both the monitor & view finder are pitch black, I can't see objects in front of the camera through the camera

This 700x dv was in storage for a while. I plugged it in, charged it, now the view finder & monitor are pitch black. I can't see objects. It normally doesn't need a video tape or memory chip to see objects on the view finder & monitor. I tried increasing brightness, turning off fade to black, and rebooting by removing the battery. Is there some way I can fix this without sending it in for repair? Thanks

I,ve purchased a apple mac and can,t get my jvc 700x to comply with it


In order to import video you have to connect your computer to the DV in/out connection on the side of the camera. In your manual its on index page 6 and its the connection on the side of the camera #25 in the index. You have to have a DV cable that connects one side to the DV out of the camera and usually a firewire port on your computer. USB connections usually don't work for importing video to your computer.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

I have a JVC camcorder that when on and you look thru the view finder I see nothing but black, but when I use the sideview screen it works fine. Any ideas on that the problem might be with the view...


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

Gr-dvx7 jvc lcd screen is just white?


If the view finder shows the same white display. You probably have display circuit problem in the camera. Faulty CCD chip usually shows Black screen so it probably board problem or a connector problem. If you see an image through view finder then you may have defective connection from board to LCD assy. Either way it need to be looked at by a trained technician. Good luck.

Cannot play back recordings


I have the same model and I also had that problem. It turned out to be the motor. Do you hear a faint humming sound? If this is similar, you will have to take it to a designated JVC repair shop.
