Question about JVC GR-DF450 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi lskumar!I have also got SONY DCR-TRV285E and it gives the same problem as yours. It took me long 3 months to get around the problem. I surfed a lot and found that many people are facing the same problem with sony cameras.
Now the fix is - When your camera gives "Reinsert the cassette" message", take a pen / pencil like object and push the reset switch on the camera. Its just below the volume +- buttons. The camera would restart. See if this solves your problem. If it doesn't then switch off the camera and apply Indian style of repair - Give 1-2 slaps on the cassette side but don't hit too hard. Then switch on and reset again. Repeat 2-3 times if necessary.
This is weird but it works for me. I got this solution from some forum on internet. Hope it works for you too!!! Remember, this is only a temporary solution. The problem keeps on arising every now and then. The SONY ppl don't have any cure for this. They don't know why it happens.
One more thing. Buy a good head cleaning cassette. This would give new life to your camera-head.
Have a nice day! Do tell me if it works..
