How do i stop videos?

I might be misunderstanding your questions - if so, I apologize.

First, make sure that the switch is on "camera" and not on "play" or "off." When it is on camera, you can then press the button below the word "DISC."

After you record a video, you can simply hit the record button a second time to stop the recording process. The video you just recorded will automatically be given a separate "scene" in the index. You can view the video by moving the selector switch to "play."

Have a JVC everio. After shooting, I cannot switch off. I have to remove the battery to switch it off every time I use my JVC everio.

What happens when you press the "Record" button again (to stop recording)? Ca you power it off then?

When shooting, the camera will not stop recording or shut off. I am shooting to the P2 cards. The only way to stop the recording is to remove the power supply / battery and then repairing the clip.

I can't start recording.

# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
