    Hi. My GR DVL9000 has more problems than that even though I have kept it in a 100% waterproof and shock proof camera case. It is so unpredictable that it is hard to know where to start to explain its maniac behavior. Lets try!!! Mini DV cassette in-PLAY-blue screen-only button that works is FFW-now stop works but the Menu pops up! Return is high lite but Menu dial has no effect. Menu off works after 3 or 4 pushes. batt symbol shows 75% batt although there is no batt in it! Play-FFW-play=EO3. Switch to OFF-to A=nothing (screen open) and many more problems. It is totally erratic. Mind you, the number of times that I have been able to take it out, wait until it is at ambient temperature and have a little filming pleasure without a problem are few. When it goes, it goes well and I love it. When it plays up I am disappointed to have spent over $2000.

    Does my camera have wonky electronics? Please help me to sort it out. Am looking forward to finding a solution. Thank you

My camcorder goes into safeguard mode EO3 when I try to clean it.

I have had the same problem with a different model JVC. I haven't been able to fix it yet, but there were a bunch of people on a different forum that were able to fix that error code quite simply. With a tape in the machine, flip the lever to eject the tape, then as soon as you hear the motor start to whir, quickly close the door.
It didn't help me, but like I said, several people reported that that action fixed the EO3 error.

JVC GR DVL 9000 digital video camera EO3 problem please help.

Manual says any message E01-7 is 'a malfunction of some kind'. Recommends remove the power supply, battery pack etc, and press the reset button. Wait for a few minutes for the indication to clear, then resume normal use. If it doesn't clear after 2-3 attempts, take it to your dealer.
